'American Idol' winners: Where are they now?
The Alabama-bred "Velvet Teddy Bear" has branched out beyond pop music in the nine years since his "Idol" win. His debut, "Soulful," debuted at No. 1, but Studdard followed the R&B album with the gospel release "I Need an Angel" in 2004. He has since toured with the stage production "Ain't Misbehavin' " and has dropped about 70 pounds from his "Teddy Bear" frame.
