William Hung gets $25,000 record offer.
William Hung may not have made it past the American Idol 3 judges table, but he was just offered a $25,000 advance on a record deal, forever altering our perception of the parade of clearly awful singers during the audition phase. The offer came from Koch Entertainment, home of Tupac Shakur and other artists, and Fuse, the music television network that actually plays videos. The Daily Californian reports that “Hung said he isn’t sure if he would be able to balance his education with a record deal, although he plans on titling his album White Dragon if he accepts the recording contract.” He was surprised with the news after performing during the halftime of a volleyball game at UC Berkeley.
