Pop singer Mika shares details of new album and how his sister's accident inspired him to write music

Mika shot to stardom in 2007 with the release of his first single "Grace Kelly." His upbeat debut album "Life in Cartoon Motion" sold nearly 6 million copies worldwide, earning him a Grammy nomination.

Mika's third album is now out today to great reviews. It's called "The Origin of Love" and the single from that is called "Celebrate."

Mika talks to Soledad O'Brien and the "Starting Point" team this morning about the latest album, how he got into music and how his sister's terrible accident inspired him to write music.
