Singing sensation and American Idol favorite David Archuleta tells his inspiring personal story. Includes full-color photos!
A runner-up on American Idol and successful music artist, David Archuleta was named one of the “breakout stars of 2008” by Forbes magazine and landed the number two spot on the Billboard charts.
In Chords of Strength David shares his unexpected and inspiring journey, including how he overcame vocal cord paralysis to achieve his dream of being a singer. He reveals insecurities he felt about his voice — before he realized that he loved the way singing made him feel more than he disliked the way he sounded. In this personal memoir, David opens up about the strength he draws from his unshakable faith and unyielding family. He pays tribute to those who continue to inspire him and through their example help him believe in himself, his talent, and his abilities.
Intimate and uplifting, Chords of Strength allows a unique glimpse of the man behind the music and offers hope to anyone with a passion and a dream.

About the Author
Chords of Strength a must read
by Lydia - reviewed on January 31, 2013
I absolutely loved this sweet book written by David Archuleta. I not only have it in soft cover but then bought it again in Hardcover so I would not damage the spine of the book. I hope he writes another after his Mission is complete. I will be first in line to order that one as well.
Great Inspirational Story

Chords of Strength is the Story of David Archuleta's Life which I have read more than once. Even though he is a young man and hopefully has many more Chapters, he shares lessons along the way that Fans especially were interested in Reading. Even as a Senior Citizen I am inspired by this young talented man. I have gifted the book to many. It would be especially helpful for young adults. He is currently serving a Mission in South America and sacrificed two years of his budding Musical Career because he wanted to serve a grow closer to God.
