    I'm sure Antoine has a TV deal by now. He'd make a perfect "guy on the street" for Letterman!

    On a more serious note, I was so glad to read last week about his actions in saving his sister from that animal! Kudos to him.

    The song has also landed at number 35 on the iTunes charts and has sold approximately 30,000 copies. Dodson receives half of all profits - which he plans to use to move his family to a safer neighborhood.

    Me too STEADFAST! Good for this young man for fighting back....for taking a stand.....and for turning this horrible attack on his sister into something positive in their lives.

    I've been singing this rap song ever since I saw this story on Today!

    'Bed Intruder' songster turning fame into a future

    By ERRIN HAINES

    HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Antoine Dodson's angry, head-shaking TV interview about an attempted rape against his younger sister in her bed has turned into a chart-topping iTunes song and YouTube hit and made the 24-year-old Alabama college student an Internet sensation.

    snip

    Dodson plans to use the money from the "Bed Intruder Song" selling for $1.29 a download and T-shirt sales to move his family out of the Lincoln Park housing project where they say the attack happened. But in an era when a viral video clip can rocket anyone to stardom, some suggest that Dodson and his family are being used and that his online rant plays to racial stereotypes.

    To think so is to sell Dodson short. He said he is determined to be empowered, not exploited.

    snip

    A typical day for Dodson now includes checking in on his thousands of Facebook fans, photo shoots, pondering a small movie role and juggling media interviews. And while he enjoys the limelight, he is still seeking justice for his sister and a better life for his family.

    "We're still struggling," Dodson said. "We have a hit on iTunes, but we're still in the projects."

    snip

    The musicians are splitting the proceeds with Dodson. While the money has begun to trickle in, it can't come fast enough for Dodson, who, along with his sister, has had sleepless nights since what happened.

    "I want them to be in a house that's comfortable. I feel like they need to be in a different area," he said of his family, adding that they have begun househunting.

    Antoine totally rocks! I am so glad to see he is using this spotlight wisely to help his family move into better conditions. Good for him! Hopefully, this will also allow him to continue his education. I couldn't be happier that good things are coming his way.
