Re: “American Idol and its great colony of semi-stars, like David Cook

Dave has also leveraged the TV recognition into ongoing support of brain cancer research via his involvement with Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure and the annual Race for Hope -- as of last December, garnering funds to the tune of $1 million (and counting). That doesn't count his many other charitable efforts, including annual participation in Chris Evert's celebrity tennis tournament benefiting children's charities. These endeavors have been strongly supported by a loyal fan cohort who have become fundraisers in their own right. He has said, frequently, that this work is as satisfying to him as the music.

To make a living doing what you love best, and to do some good in the world along the way? That's a recipe for a satisfying life, stardom or no stardom. I'm happy he's still rolling along.

Thanks for taking a look at the topic.
