American Idol's James Durbin Belts Out "Don't Stop Believing" at the Durbin Day Concert

American Idol Season 10's James 'Give Metal a Chance' Durbin belts out Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" at Durbin Day in his hometown, Santa Cruz, CA on May 14th, 2011. "Don't Stop Believing" has become one of James' signature songs, and one of his mottoes. He asked at the concert "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?" referring to the Carole King/Shirelles song and also the fact that although he was no longer on Idol, we'll be hearing a lot more from him. James Durbin was the first 4th place American Idol finisher ever to be granted the privilege of a homecoming, normally reserved only for the Final 3.Durbin Day included a parade, media interviews and the concert at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. James met with members of Kids on Broadway, the Santa Cruz-based group where Durbin performed as a teenager. One of the boys asked James, who was diagnosed with Tourette's and Asperger's Syndromes as a child,what to do about bullying. James, an amazing role-model, said, “I got made fun of, I got beat up. It’s those hard things that made me what I am. Just know you’re better than they are.”
