On this Sunday’s episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, David Cook helps build a house for the Cowan family, factory workers whose youngest child, 12-year-old Kori, suffers from a congenital blood disease.

David tells Zap2it.com that he was really impressed by young Kori, who finds time to help others as she deals with her own issues.   David calls the experience “awe inspiring” and appreciates host Ty Pennington’s “real chill SoCal vibe”.   David also managed to learn a few drywall skills!

Over the past couple of days, David has been in British Columbia writing with Brian Howes, the producer/songwriter who co-wrote “Light On” with Chris Cornell.   David tweeted that he and Howes finished up 2 songs.   “Cue celebratory fist pump, ” David crowed afterward.

On his songwriting, David tells Zaptoit, “I’m writing differently in some cases, really trying to concentrate on everything coming from an honest place, which is therapeutic and scary and all of that stuff.”

Other songwriters David has been working with lately include, Claude Kelly, Greg Wattenberg, Johnny Resnick and   Sam and Sluggo.

David’s episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition airs Sunday on ABC at 8 pm ET/PT. His album is due out later this year.
