David Roland Cook (born December 20, 1982) is an American rock singer-songwriter, who rose to fame after winning the seventh season of the reality television show American Idol.
Prior to Idol he released an album entitled Analog Heart, and his post-Idol self-titled album, produced by Grammy-winning producer Rob Cavallo, was released on November 18, 2008 and has since been certified Platinum by the RIAA. David's eldest brother, Adam, battled brain cancer for 11 years until his death on May 2, 2009. He began singing in second grade, when his elementary school music teacher gave him a solo in a school choir performance.
"I said, 'No, but I will.'"Jason Owen, the band's manager, asked her how she would feel about having her own cooking show, leaving her "flabbergasted.""I pretended as a kid that I had my own cooking show, but I never ever dreamed it would be a reality," Schlapman said.
Kim is a beautiful redhead and the few photos seen of her and David together looked strangely photoshopped.
After a while an article with photographs turned up in a tabloid with quotes of things that supposedly she and David had said sounded real enough at first.
He also participated in choir and drama programs in middle school and high school.
At Blue Springs South High School, he performed in musicals, including The Music Man, West Side Story, and Singin' in the Rain.
The new kitchen is accentuated with Caesar stone, stainless steel and custom cabinetry — and even a pull-out panel on the bottom row of cabinets to keep the family's dog from eating their cats' food."This was the kitchen that 'Pontoon' built," Kimberly Schlapman said with a laugh.
