Elliott Yamin Answers Your Questions
Season 5’s second runner-up, Elliot Yamin, has been very busy lately. A couple weeks ago, Elliott spoke at the 20th World Diabetes Congress. At the event in Montreal, Canada, Elliott discussed living with diabetes and how to educate people through music. Just prior to his speaking engagement, Elliott performed for troops in Guam and Japan on his second USO Tour.
Since appearing on American Idol, Elliott has released two solo albums. His self-titled album debuted at the number three spot on Billboard’s Top 200 list. His first release “Wait For You,” was a Top 5, platinum-certified smash. Two years in the making, Elliott’s sophomore album, Fight for Love, was released earlier this year and included hit singles “Can’t Keep on Loving You” and the title track “Fight for Love.”
Elliott sat down with AmericanIdol.com to talk about living with diabetes, Fight for Love, and his plans for 2010. Watch the interview!

Not only does he enjoy watching all levels of competition (high school, college, professional, men, women, etc.), but he gets the game. He’s played it all his life. Lived and breathed it growing up. He knows the ins and outs, how players add value or enhance a team, the purity of the sport, the atmosphere, the love, the dedication, and the jubilation it brings to people across the globe. Not surprisingly, he’s also an avid WNBA enthusiast and supporter. You probably know Elliott from his amazing run on American Idol a couple years back where he captured the collective hearts of America. Since then, he’s recorded two albums that have done phenomenally well on the charts (they are both amazing and I’m proud to own both of them). WNBA fans, most recently, may have seen him perform live at the 2009 WNBA All-Star game. But Elliott isn’t like other high-profile celebrities who attend sporting events as a social event rather than actually watching and taking-in the essence of the game.
Talking with Elliott, after just a few minutes, you get the same feeling you do when you’re reconnecting with a long-time friend; he’s gracious, welcoming, kind and classy. Interestingly enough, this is the exact same description one could use to describe many WNBA players and the vast majority of its fan base.
It’s evident, even after a mere few seconds of speaking with him, that Yamin has an undeniable passion and love for the game of basketball, which is extraordinarily refreshing. “I love everything about the game,” says Yamin. “The camaraderie among your teammates, being athletic and using your muscles, the physical aspect of it – just competing in general. I’ve been playing sports my whole life and basketball has always been my favorite. I mean, I love absolutely everything about it. I’m not a very patient person so I love the fast-paced nature of the sport. Even to the smell of the gym and ball – that anxiety you feel before a game whether you’re playing or watching. Anything you can think of, I love it about basketball – the purity of the sport is amazing.”
Elliott’s been a basketball aficionado all his life. Born and raised in California until the age of 10, he became indoctrinated with the Lakers culture and fell head over heals in love. “I’m a life-long Lakers fan, bro,” Yamin told me. “I was born here and left when I was 10 so it was all Magic, all Byron Scott, all Michael Cooper, all Thompson twins, all Pat Riley, AC Green – everyone. I was all about that all the time. Anytime a Lakers game was on you knew where to find me. I was in front of a TV set no matter where I was.”
One of Yamin’s most beloved dreams was to attend a Lakers game courtside and meet Magic Johnson. Through his great success in his musical career, he’s been able to check those dreams off the list. “I never had a chance to go to a Lakers game when I was young and we moved out of California when I was 10,” says Elliott. “But now I can go to a Lakers game whenever I want! If that’s the only thing that comes out of my success as a singer, I’ll be just fine.” And meeting Magic Johnson? “Jermaine Dupri did some work on my recent album and actually invited me to an ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) event where they were honoring him and Magic,” Elliott said. “I got to meet Magic and talk with him on the red carpet for a while, got some pictures, it was amazing.”
Yamin’s knowledge of the game goes far beyond the superficial. Going off topic a bit during our interview we discussed the Lakers acquisition of Ron Artest and how the organization has essentially, grown their talent into what it is today. Elliott talked about how glad he was that the Lakers were able to keep reserve Shannon Brown, how difficult it will be to repeat as champions, and being able to watch the Lakers win the NBA Championship last year from overseas. “I was on tour last year in Japan during the NBA Finals but I did get to watch the last game live. That was awesome.”
Performing at the 2009 WNBA All-Star game, Elliott had a chance to truly take in the purity of the women’s game as well. “I loved how everything was very fan-friendly,” says Yamin. “The players really interacted and appreciated the fans who felt like they were a real part of things. I really dug that. The fans were really into it and you could tell how loyal they were. Plus, seeing Taurasi play was pretty special. Swin [Cash] really stood out to me too. I think other leagues should take note of the atmosphere in a WNBA game.”
Elliott’s enthusiasm for the game is easy to sense, and it’s infectious. Quite frankly, he is a perfect example of what the WNBA needs — an intelligent and open-minded sports fan (who, in this case, happens to be a guy) who understands the intricacies of the game and appreciates the sport all levels. The exhilaration he feels when watching a NBA is the same he feels even when playing basketball himself – his fervor and adoration for the game transcends genders. For Elliott, it’s not a gender thing – it’s a basketball thing.
Having people like Elliott support and encourage others to follow the WNBA will undoubtedly go a long way toward its future success. In fact, it’s absolutely vital. There is a palpable genuineness to Elliott that is unmistakable when he talks about the game of basketball and his appreciation for the WNBA. Yes, it certainly helps that he’s a guy, but it’s deeper than that. He’s a well-respected artist who loves the game and wants the WNBA to thrive and flourish as much as anyone. “First and foremost people have to realize that women are just as worth and just as capable as men,” Elliott said. “More people need to take notice. I want to see the ratings up and I want to see more people in the stands. Blogs like ‘The W’ will certainly help with that.”

Season 5’s Elliott Yamin will be a special guest at the 20th World Diabetes Congress on Wednesday, October 21. Sharing his first hand experiences as a diabetic, Elliott will discuss living with diabetes and how to educate people through music. His speaking engagement is from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal in Montreal, Canada.
The World Diabetes Congress is the premier gathering of the global diabetes community, and the event is held every other year. Elliott participated in World Diabetes Day on November 14, 2007, where he was joined by children with diabetes for a performance of the song “Promise to Remember Me” in the United Nation’s Rose Garden. Elliott is involved with a number of diabetes charities including Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Promise to Remember Me Campaign, and Diabetes Creative Expression Competition.
In a past interview with Diabetes Health, Elliot told kids “to stay positive. Make time for your diabetes and be aware of your body…Anyone with diabetes can have a normal life. It makes me so happy that I’m showing kids and teenagers that they should absolutely go for their dreams.”
Elliott just returned from his tour overseas singing to the US troops. Read more about his USO performances.

IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE: XOM) and American Idol finalist Elliott Yamin have teamed up to support new malaria prevention projects at the Saint Isabel Orphanage and School in Luanda, Angola.
Yamin, a champion in the fight against malaria, delivered a special performance Friday at the 1st Annual Washington Ideas Forum, two days of discussion by major newsmakers and top journalists on the most pressing issues of the day. In support of his performance, ExxonMobil made a grant of $100,000 to the orphanage and
"When I visited Angola as part of Idol Gives Back, I saw how devastating malaria is in Africa and that there are some basic actions we can take to save lives," said Yamin. "Saint Isabel provides hope and new lives for the
Dr. Steven Phillips, Medical Projects Director of ExxonMobil, said the company knows first-hand the health and economic impacts of malaria on its workforce, their families and the communities where it operates.
"We know that prevention is the key to saving lives when combating malaria," said Phillips. "We are proud to help Saint Isabel build on its long history of providing care and education to Luanda's marginalized children."
The grant will enable Saint Isabel to improve and expand its facility to better protect more children from malaria by reducing exposure to mosquitoes through increased ventilation and new windows and screens. In addition, Saint Isabel will launch an art-based malaria prevention education program that will teach children how to fight malaria.
"These underprivileged youth are the most susceptible to diseases such as malaria," said Sister Domingas, director of Saint Isabel, which provides room and board to children between the ages of five and 17, and schooling to an additional 800 students. "These improvements will result in healthier, happier children. We consider ExxonMobil to be an important partner in safeguarding the children of Luanda."
ExxonMobil is the largest non-pharmaceutical corporate donor to malaria research and development efforts and since 2000 has committed more than $150 million to African community outreach programs, including $55 million to programs to fight malaria.

Elliot Yamin - Spotlight
Published: Sunday, August 30, 2009
During the past three years, Elliott Yamin has established himself as a household name In the fifth season of “American Idol,” Yamin finished third, after Taylor Hicks and Katharine McPhee. His debut album was certified gold, and his single “I'll Wait For You,” was a hit on the Billboard charts.
Yamin performed on Aug. 15 to a packed crowd at Eisenhower Park, East Meadow, appearing with former season seven contestants Brooke White and Michael Johns as part of 102.7 FM's “Fresh In the Park” series.
Yamin's two biggest influences were his mother, Claudette Yamin, who passed away last year, and his mentor, Tony Klieciewicz. Of all of the songs that he has recorded, his favorite is a song called “Someday” from his new album “Fight for Love,” which he wrote in memory of his mother.
Yamin, a Type-1 diabetic, currently serves as a spokesperson for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. He has made the decision “to use 'American Idol' as a vehicle to bring awareness to my cause.” The hardest aspect of his job is keeping his diabetes under control while he is on the road.
His proudest professional moments are his appearances on “American Idol” and his ability “to put out his own music.” Another fond memory is being part of Idol Gives Back, a charitable organization which raises money for underprivileged children around the world. He visited Angola, Africa, for four days with former “American Idol” winner Fantasia Barrino. He found it “both amazing and humbling to experience Angola and be part of a change.” A poignant moment during his visit there came when a baby boy was named “Elliott,” after him, a local tradition wherein babies are named after special visitors.
For Queens College students interested in pursuing careers in the music industry, Yamin recommends that “they work on their craft every day, as often as possible, and do whatever they can to showcase their talent.” Yamin adds that "a lot of things in this business happen by chance, so be ready for it."Yamin's definition of success is “accomplishing what you set out to do, whether people recognize it or not.” He is aware that he is fortunate to have his fans, who are out there buying his albums. He wishes it were possible “to someday meet each and every one” of his fans.

Your favorite song is "You Say" and in second place there is a tie, Cold Heart and Apart from Me. It is really quiet these days, there is nothing new on the Elliott Yamin front. Elliott must be on holidays or something. Elliott deserves sometime off, he has put so much effort into his new album and radio tours that he must be exhausted!!! As fans we need to give him a break. I will update you when there is anything to report.
