Along with showcasing children in foster care in need of a forever family we do dream days. We spent several months connecting Jamal with donors who could help make his dream come true. The song "Imminent" is one of several produced for him by Take Flite Entertainment in Long Beach. Kap'n Kirk Martin is the record producer on the project.

On Hollywood's biggest night, there's reason to be proud. Jamal was in his element. Under the artist name, Team Wednesday's Child, he's singing his first song on iTunes, "Foxy Lil Lady."

We take you back to adoption day, an emotional one for mom.

Jamal would be her first of five adopted. Susan and Maurice had always wanted children. They attended Jamal's big night on stage.

The event was a benefit by Children Uniting Nations. Its founder Daphna Ziman is a passionate advocate for children in foster care. Actor Dennis Quaid and his band were also on the ticket. Kenny Lattimore and Mikki Howard sang as well.

Why not roll VIP, after all, it was Oscar night. My co-anchor Carlos Amezcua agreed to play chauffeur and Bentley donated the ride. I emceed the event.

On this night he and his co-stars were superstars. Thanks to Sean McNabb and Lotis (Sean Jackson) on vocals. Thanks to Art Lewin for outfitting Jamal in a custom Bespoke suit. Thanks to photographers Pamela Manning, Emily Gummig, and Angel Alvarado.
