Casey Abrams has been busy since being a contestant on "American Idol." He has been doing some great things along with being on tour with the other contestants from the show. Here are a few more things he has been busy with since "American Idol."
Casey's IBD Awareness Campaign
Casey has been suffering from Ulcerative Colitis (UC) for two years and because of this he asked for votes for the finalists in the National Disease Awareness Campaign. Casey helped launch awareness for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and to celebrate the courage of people that have to live with IBD everyday of their life. Casey has never let this disease hold him back and this is his way of showing all those other sufferers out there that they can do the same. Hundreds of people submitted their stories for a chance to be named in the 2011 IBD Icon and win a trip to see Casey perform in Las Vegas. The public started voting and Casey has, also, said that if 1,500 people sign up to be a fan by November 1 then he will shave his beard off. The results are yet to be released. The winner will be announced on December 1. Let's hope Casey gets that many fans, because it would be nice to see him clean shaven!
Casey's New Single
Casey and Haley Reinhart, another contestant on Season 10, have got together and released a holiday rendition of "Baby It's Cold Outside." The single will be available to download on November 21. During "American Idol" the two talented singers were known for their jazzy performances. The new track was produced by Busbee and recorded at the Conway Studios in Los Angeles. Let's hope this single becomes a hit!
Casey's Involvement in Refuse Plastic Campaign
Casey and the other finalists have made a video about refusing plastic, which is an initiative aimed at getting people to end their use on disposable plastic. Lauren Alaina is very much into this and wanted to involve the other finalists. Casey and the rest of the Season 10 finalists want to stop plastic pollution. The refuse video can be seen on Z ap 2 It. In the video you will see Casey Abrams, Lauren Alaina, Scotty McCreery, Haley Reinhart, James Durbin, Jacob Lusk, Stefano Langone, Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano, Naima Adedapo and Thia Megia reunited and giving their views and thoughts on plastic pollution. They have done very well with this and ask the public to refuse, reduce, reuse and recycle. Well done to them all for getting it out there. Let's hope we get to see them all together again in the future!
