Watch "American Idol" Alum Corey Clark Talk About Being an Uber Driver
Corey Clark was once a contestant on season 2 of American Idol, but that was back in 2003. It's 12 years later and Clark's life has taken a new direction, behind the wheel as an Uber driver rather than as a celebrity. The former contestant was seen behind the wheel of an Uber in Beverly Hills and seemed very happy when approached by a cameraman. He said he was on his way from a doctor's appointment to the studio, so it seems like he's still working on his singing career. His time as an Uber driver is serving him well, according to TMZ.

Clark's comments on his latest gig are very positive and are part of a story to which many a starving artist can relate. While actors and actresses trying to find their big break often wait tables, Clark instead drives an Uber to make sure he has the cash he needs to take care of his family.
