The life story of actor, producer, songwriter, singer, rapper, and member of the Grammy Award-winning Black Eyed Peas  Tracing the rise to fame and fortune of William James Adams, Jr., this biography explores his troubled childhood and shows how his early love of flamboyant dress and his talent to rap saved him from the sad fates that befell many of his friends and neighbors. Bringing the story up to date, it reveals the truth behind his self-confessed "freak out" in 2008, his mixed fortunes as a manager, his relationship with pop star Cheryl Cole, and his time as a judge on The Voice UK. It also discusses his stint carrying the Olympic torch, the time he's spent working alongside NASA on a project designed to inspire children to get involved in science, and his philanthropic work. This is the perfect book for fans of this enigmatic individual, at last revealing the truth behind the shades.

About the Author:

Danny White is a journalist and the author of Johnny Depp.

From Booklist:

Will.i.am (born William Adams in Los Angeles), one of the founders of the hip-hop group the Black Eyed Peas, seems like a nice, decent fellow as presented in this exceedingly polite portrait by journalist and celebrity biographer White. Will, as White refers to him, sweetly cites his mother, Debra, as a major influence. She encouraged him to be different and often reminds him of where he came from and the struggles that led to his wildly successful career. Will was born and raised, without meeting his father, within the only black family in the impoverished Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights. Former classmates remember him much as he is perceived today, as charismatic and charming. White dutifully recounts the highlights of Will and the Peas’ experiences thus far, from their early days clubbing in Hollywood to their worldwide fame and Will’s work with Michael Jackson. Some controversies are addressed, including the lawsuit involving celebrity blogger Perez Hilton. Fans of Will.i.am will enjoy this “unauthorized,” lighter-than-a-soufflé biography; those seeking more depth will have to wait. --June Sawyers
