OK, American Idol Fans get ready to scream.

Season Seven winner DAVID COOK will be performing at Musica in downtown Akron on Friday, May 8th.

Well, according to Tim Eddings of Celebrity Etc who books the Musica, Cook's team felt bad about booking and then unbooking the gig and when a break in Cook's busy, busy schedule came up, Musica got the gig.
