Former American Idol frontrunner, James Durbin, has become a role model for kids who are bullied. In the video link below, Durbin helps educate others by talking with Dr. Drew about living with Asperger and Tourette syndromes. He also surprises a young fan living with the challenges of Tourettes.

Responsible use of celebrity. I like James even more now.

Watch it here.

Focused on ability.
