Horrible Event Turned Into A Positive

Not sure how many of you have seen the video but it's become an internet meme. A woman found a rapist in her bed who was scared away by her brother. The internet that followed the next day went viral. Long story short Antoine Dodson was contacted later for permission to create a song out of the interview. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMtZfW2z9dw

After multiple requests the creators marketed it on Itunes and give half the money to Antoine and his family. Now selling T-shirts as well the family is saving up the money to get out of the neighborhood.

A pretty weird and interesting story when you think about it. They managed to turn this horrible event into a way to help the family.

Is there anything Auto-tune doesn't make better?

Is that even possible? I dont give a damn about politics, nor am I American, but after hearing that man speak during his campaign and after he won the election I thought "I'd vote for him."

Dude can speak, which is a huge improvement over Mr. Foot-in-the-mouth Bush.

Anyways, Autotune the News would be much better without the white douchebags who are actually trying to sing. Just stick with autotuning the news and other celebrities and whatnot and leave your own lyrics and douchey haircuts out of it. Douches.
