American Idol 7 winner, David Cook introduces his new charity endeavor via You Tube. He’ll be rappelling down the tallest building on the San Diego waterfront on November 2nd, to raise awareness and funds to support city-based brain cancer research. Later that night, he’ll perform at a local club, The Griffin.
Since his Idol win, David has been using his time and celebrity to fight cancer. As most of you know David lost his brother, Adam, to the disease in 2009.
