Chris Medina was thrilled when his music became popular overseas. He had a single that went four times platinum in Norway and a fanbase of hundreds of thousands. He played before crowds of 70,000 people and toured Norway, Sweden and Singapore. When his album What Are Words was released in late-November, he was ecstatic to see it climb to gold status in Norway. But something was still missing.
He wanted to bring it back home—where it all began. On Feb. 1, he giddily announced to American fans that his album What Are Words is now available for download in the United States.

Medina shot into the public eye after his appearance on Season 10 of American Idol, as he told the world his story of unconditional love and undying devotion to fiancé Juliana Ramos. Ramos suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury from an Oct. 2009 car accident. Her injury and ongoing recovery delayed their wedding plans., and Medina continues to assist in her recovery. Fans and Idol viewers rallied around Medina and Ramos, many planning fundraisers in her name and following her updates through her mother's blog and For Juliana Facebook page. As he pursues his music career, Ramos continues to improve and recover.
The album is available on iTunes.
