Local American Idol contestant, James Durbin, was eliminated this past week, making him ineligible for the spectacular homecomings that Idol and Fox put on for the top three. But Santa Cruz persisted and insisted, and got permission to bring James back for the day and sing a few songs to over 20,000 fans gathered at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. This video begins with a smaller crowd at an afternoon event at the Louden Nelson Community Center, where James met with an (invitation only) crowd of old friends and the Kids on Broadway group he used to be a part of. The second half is the homecoming celebration on the stage at the Boardwalk.

Here's a video I did for my work a month or so ago... Court Appointed Special Advocates of Santa Cruz County (CASA) is a child's voice in dependency court, providing advocacy, stability, and hope to children who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned. This video was part of a presentation at which CASA recognized these outstanding community members for their generosity and dedication to children in foster care.
