    'Idol' winner becomes charity ambassador

    i lmow we know but this is different haha

    'Idol' winner becomes charity ambassador

    Stan Walker has been named an official ambassador for the Sony Foundation, a charity that raises money for members of the community in need.

    The 19-year-old singer, who won last year's Australian Idol, visited children at a special needs holiday camp in Sydney as part of his duties for the charity.

    Walker told Woman's Day magazine: "It's so awesome to meet these kids and hopefully bring some joy into their lives - to make them smile and make them laugh. I want to thank them for letting me be a part of the camp. It's great to talk to them.

    "I thought it was so cool when I was asked to join the foundation. It's such an amazing thing to be part of something that's helping and inspiring other people.

    "I want to bring hope to people who are exactly like me. I want to be an ambassador and an example of the 'other side', and just help out as best I can. I do know what it feels like to have nothing and to feel nothing. I just want to bring people back something."

    Thanks Sarah! what a great job you are doing girl!

    Well, as you guys already said ... I'm so proud of Stan. He is an example for the younger generations. Well, I'm from an older generation but still i feel inspired by his actions and believes. A role model, a good man, an excellent artist.

    I wonder what the youngest members think about his strong stand on issues like this in the article. Most of teens, especially involved in the music industry, probably don't think much about joining these kind of humanitary causes ???.... or maybe I just don't know about it......

    hey guys i found another littel bit on this in womans day magazine:

    Belting out his new hit single 'Black Box' with the voice famously described as touched by God , 2009's Australian Idol winner Stan Walker has the crowd in the palm of his hand.
    But while singing to the nation is now all in a day's work for our hottest new star, this performance is a far more intimate one.

    Taking time out to visit a Sydney holiday camp for children with special needs, run by Abbotsleigh and Knox Grammar schools, provided Stan with a day he'll never forget.

    "It's so awesome to meet these kids and hopefully bring some joy into their lives — to make them smile and make them laugh," Stan enthuses. "I want to thank them for letting me be a part of the camp. It's great to talk to them."



    Stan knows all too well how challenging life can be for some young people. But, as he points out, "It's not about how many times you fall, but how many times you get up."
    So when the 19-year-old soul singer, whose history of overcoming a deeply troubled past won him the respect and admiration of a legion of fans, was asked to adopt an important new role, he didn't hesitate.

    Stan has just been named an official ambassador for the Sony Foundation — a charity that raises funds for members of the community in need. And it's obvious Stan couldn't be more excited to be helping raise the profile of the foundation as they take their youth programs into the public arena.

    "I thought it was so cool when I was asked to join the foundation," Stan says. "It's such an amazing thing to be part of something that's helping and inspiring other people."

    Stan is also looking forward to working with disadvantaged or troubled youth through the foundation.

    "I want to bring hope to people who are exactly like me. I want to be an ambassador and an example of the 'other side', and just help out as best I can," Stan says.

    "I do know what it feels like to have nothing and to feel nothing. I just want to bring people back something."
