From American Idol to being Sorry. Take a moment and find out what David Hernandez has been up to. What’s going with him and all things music, as well as the details on how he created his recent smash hit, ‘Sorry.’
David Hernandez began singing at age six, starring in musicals and performing with various theatre companies. At fifteen, he started writing original music and recording his arrangements. In addition to American Idol, he has showcased his talents on The Ellen Show, The Today Show, MTV’s TRL, EXTRA, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, Teen Choice Awards, Idol Tonight, FOX-TV’s Idol Gives Back. He was named among TV Guides’ Sexiest Stars and opened for John Legend at President Barack Obama’s Inauguration. His previous single, Beautiful, released in 2016 became a Billboard Top 200 Dance Chart hit.
He has released two full-length albums, 2011’s I Am Who I Am and most recently, KINGDOM: THE MIXTAPE, an album that included twenty original tracks, many of which reflected on the love and loss he experienced since rising to fame on American Idol.
“I have grown since KINGDOM: THE MIXTAPE; emotionally and sonically,” David says. “What I love about ’Sorry’ is I’m allowing myself to be vulnerable and I’m getting closer to speaking my truth. It’s basically me admitting, “Hey I fucked up. I am not perfect but I am trying to be better”.
