Memoirs of the People's Idol

One of the most popular contestants ever to appear on American Idol gives his fans an all-access pass to the wildly popular television show—and opens up about how becoming an Idol star changed his life forever.

Sanjaya Malakar didn’t need to win American Idol to take America by storm. He was just seventeen when his unique style, soft-spoken demeanor, and memorable song selections on the record-breaking show’s sixth season captured hearts across the country.

In his candid book, Sanjaya opens up about what it feels like to go from obscurity as a high school student near Seattle to worldwide fame as a top ten finalist on one of the most popular television shows in American history. For the first time, the “People’s Idol” talks about life before Randy, Simon, Paula, and “Sanjayamania,” and offers his devoted “Fanjayas” an intimate behind-the-scenes look at the blockbuster show. From going to Hollywood with his beloved sister, Shyamali, to becoming the most highly anticipated performer of season six, to facing the unforgiving chopping block, Sanjaya tells his fans everything they want to know. Finally, he shares how his life has changed since he left Idol, and where his music—and unforgettable persona—will take him next.
