Call in to speak with the host
Drew Lachey is dreaming of a charitable Christmas. Drew tells host Robin Milling the many ways he has made someone else's Christmas wishes come true. It all started with 98 Degrees visiting urban neighborhoods for The Boys and Girls Club singing accapella Christmas carols, doo-wop style. That spirit of giving back blossomed into what Drew and his family do today; supplying gifts for the Boys and Girls Club and the Children's Hospital in his hometown of Cincinnati. His children are also learning the love of giving. He says, “My daughter actually gave up getting birthday presents at her birthday party this year for donations for the Children's Hospital raising almost $1,000. That's one of the things as a parent where you're like, 'Yes! I'm doing something right!'”
In fact Drew encourages everyone to make a difference in somebody else's life, foregoing that tie clip or Itunes gift card. That homey feeling is one of the reasons why h'es joined Up, the family friendly network which features shows his seven year-old daughter can watch; like his starring turn in Guess Who's Coming To Christmas. Drew stars as Dax, a jaded rock star who jump starts his image by fulfilling a child's 'Dear Santa' Christmas wish to spend the holidays with them. Drew's image is slightly different these days; he's not interested in being the bad boy anymore. “I'm trying to set a good example for my kids and the people who look up to me and look up to my wife. That's what I'm trying to focus on, spreading that good cheer.”
Drew looks forward to going out on the road again with his brother Nick and the band. Whether it's Dancing With The Stars, Broadway, or film acting; it seems performing is Drew's greatest gift.
It's good to talk.
