NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 24, 2005 -- The magical William Hung returns this summer with "Miracle: Happy Summer From William Hung," a collection of classic American summer songs sung from the heart.

The first single will be "Achy Breaky Heart," the smash hit made famous by musician/actor Billy Ray Cyrus. Cyrus will appear in the tongue-in-cheek video which will be shot shortly. William's rendition is already being serviced to various radio formats with an emphasis on country radio.

William's quirky personality and lovable demeanor captured the hearts of music fans nationwide as the most memorable, rejected talent show contestant in American history.

William has since become a household name through a variety of ventures in music, video and commercial endorsement deals with high-profile companies such as Cingular Wireless and AskJeeves.

"Miracle: Happy Summer From William Hung" features his unique take on summer-themed songs as well as some of William's personal favorites including "Tie A Yellow Ribbon," and "I Love L.A." The set also includes brand new inspirational sayings, or "Moments," from William as those on his debut CD were so cherished by his fans.
