Anthony Wants to Be The Voice Of Love In A Forever Home

Many of us tend to scan the radio dial listening for a song we like. But this week's Wednesday's Child, Anthony (1999), doesn't mind listening to what the on-air talent has to say in between the songs. See, Anthony is a teen who has an interest in becoming a DJ – either as a hobby or a profession. So we dropped by LA's #1 Hit Station, 102.7 KIIS FM, and had on-air DJ Freddy Rivera give Anthony a behind-the-mic feel for the duties of a live DJ-host.

And what started off as a radio station tour turned into a surprise meet-and-greet with international superstars of the electronic music scene, Galantis. Anthony slipped into the interviewer's seat with ease and started asking the duo about the history and development of their partnership. Then it was off the "green room" to sit where the likes of Lady Gaga have sat and relaxed before going on air. Then it was time to go check in with DJ Jesse Lozano as he gave away prizes on the air to loyal listeners.

Anthony is an athletic kid and hopes to play on his high school football team this fall. He has an interest in technology as well as music and fashion. As a long-term career goal Anthony can see himself in law enforcement, with hopes that DJ'ing could be a source of income as he works his way through college and/or a hobby for stress relief when he's not working a regular job.

It's clear that Anthony has thought about many options for himself. When asked what his journey in foster care has been like, Anthony expressed that it's like a round-the-clock job, 24/7, without any breaks. What Anthony needs is a supportive permanent family where accountability is balanced with unconditional love and acceptance.
