When he first graced the stage on American Idol, James Durbin instantly made TS cool and sexy. His confidence, talent, openness about his disorders (he also has Asperger Syndrome) and other great qualities made him the perfect role model for TS+. Our community was so heartbroken when he lost in the finals. J-Lo wasn’t the only one shedding frustrated tears, that’s for sure. But then James did something that embodies the spirit of our community. He gathered himself together, shrugged it off, and prepared himself for the road ahead: his dream, his challenges, his future to shape with his actions.
Today marks the next phase in his musical career, the release of his first album, Memories of a Beautiful Disaster. The reviews are super positive, like this one in the USA Today.
Have you heard the album yet? If you have, then please let us know what you think of it by commenting on this blog entry. We’d love to hear from you.
For those with TS about to rock, we salute you!
