'American Idols' get shoutout from Cantor
Former “American Idol” finalists Elliott Yamin, Jason Castro andMelinda Doolittle took a break from making music Wednesday to go knocking on congressmen’s doors in the name of malaria prevention. The singers are all advocates for Malaria No More, which works with "American Idol’s" nonprofit, the Idol Gives Back Foundation.
“We kind of lobbied without asking them for money,” said Yamin. “Lobbying without really lobbying.”
This non-lobbying lobbying caught the attention of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., who tweeted a picture with the singers when they stopped by his office. This makes Cantor the second prominent Republican to publicly affiliate with the show, following Mitt Romney’s admission to the The Today Show last year that "Idol" was his favorite TV program.
