HarperCollins Publishers has picked up singer Cody Simpson’s book, Welcome to Paradise: My Journey, and has set an October 22, 2013 release date. The book is Simpson’s first and features behind-the-scenes photos and details on his life on and off stage, chronicling his career to this point.
Announcing the acquisition of the book, Simpson said, “It’s incredibly exciting for me to be partnering with HarperCollins to tell my story. I hope that my journey inspires kids from all around the world to pursue their passions and work hard for their dreams.”
“Having recorded his first hit song at just twelve years old, Cody Simpson is more than just a breakout star with millions of devoted fans. He’s an inspiration,” stated Susan Katz, President and Publisher of HarperCollins Children’s Books. “He’s continued to produce hit after hit and performs to sold-out venues all across the world. We are proud and incredibly excited to be publishing the story of his amazing rise to fame.”
Simpson gained a fan following in 2009 after he uploaded songs to YouTube. In 2010 after signing to Atlantic Records Simpson released his first big single, “iYiYi” featuring Flo Rida. Currently, that song has over 23 million views on YouTube.
Simpson will release his third album this spring.
