7:03 am
>> reporter: good morning, ginger. it has been snowing all night here in albany. about four to five inches on the ground now. a little sleet and freezing rain mixing with a temperature of 30 degrees. we got behind a salt and plow truck. a good strategy as long as you keep a safe distance. even so the roads are slick and you can feel our tires slipping out at times. the main roads are okay, and where it's turned to rain, it's a dicey commute. lately, no matter what your mode of transport is, traveling has been difficult to say the least. in detroit a delta flight skidding off the runway on landing. >> and delta 724 we just went into the ground. >> reporter: all 70 on board safe after an emergency evacuation from the plane's rear hatch. >> you know, they did a good job of keeping everyone calm own got us all off the plane. >> reporter: a fire at michigan's boyne's highland ski resort. icy roads spawning accidents around the country and rescue workers helping dozens who skidded and flipped off the road.
7:04 am
this morning, an icy commute nightmare. >> got to love this [ bleep ]. >> reporter: parts of new york getting slammed with over three feet of snow this kweeweekend, in ohio, eup to 30 inches blanketing roadways. take a look at this four-lane highway so covered it's nearly impassable the slick roads, wreaking havoc over the weekend causing this 33-car pileup in flint. >> we got hit from each direction. pushing us one way, then around to the other way. we were spun around facing the opposite direction. >> reporter: this morning officials urging drivers to stay home. >> we want the public to ask themselves a simple question. is this trip really necessary before you leave the house? >> reporter: here in albany, it's their first accumulating snow of the season. they pre-treated the main roads. that has certainly helped with the side roads, and hillier terrain still very, very slick. they have about 200 plows out today, and some 53,000 tons of
7:05 am
salt at the ready. some school closures and delays as they wait for the snowstorm to get out of here this afternoon. ginger. >> and the key word, this snowstorm and this part of the cold because don't worry. we have a lot more coming. thank you, rob. the nucleus of that cold shot of air is right now making its way into canada. look where it gets by thursday morning. it feels like 10 below in chicago. 22 below in minneapolis. y'all, the numbers just keep going down on these computer models. by friday morning, 23 below, burlington, 11 below. new york city. look at their faces. it's just jaw-dropping. realtime. all of you. > that minus 11 is really something. >> 21 below in boston. there you go. >> thanks, ginger. >> thanks. the latest on the trump transition and those new questions about russian interference in our u.s. election. on sunday, the president-elect said that the cia's conclusion russia tried to help trump win the election is, quote, ridiculous as senators from both parties join together to call for a new investigation into the claims. trumps a senior adviser, kellyanne conway standing by live. first let's get the breaking
7:06 am
details from abc's tom llamas right here. good morning, tom. >> good morning to you and president-elect trump is pumping back on that news as he gets closer and closer to moving into the white house. trump accusing forces, not outside the country, but inside of trying to undermine his presidency. >> reporter: president-elect donald trump, in the middle of an intelligence drama. rejecting news reports that russia not only interfered in the u.s. election, but did it to help trump win. >> i think it's ridiculous. i think it's just another excuse. i don't believe it. >> reporter: trump claiming politics is behind the story. >> i think the democrats are putting it out because they suffered one of the greatest defeats in the history of politics. in this country. >> reporter: despite the u.s. intelligence community pointing the finger at russia, the president-elect refusing to believe it. >> they have no idea if it's russia or china or somebody. it could be somebody sitting in a bed someplace. >> reporter: team trump convinced hacking didn't tip the election one way or the other. >> look, the russians didn't tell hillary clinton to ignore wisconsin and michigan, okay?
7:07 am
i mean i know this is an insane analysis. she lost the election because her ideas were bad. >> reporter: and the president-elect also downplaying the daily intelligence briefing. >> i get it when i need it. i don't have to be told -- like i'm a smart person. i don't have to be told the same thing and the same words every single day for the next eight years. >> reporter: two years ago, trump attacked president obama over a similar issue tweeting, fact -- obama does not read his intelligence briefing nor does he get briefed in person by the cia or dod. too busy, i guess. the president-elect sticking to doing things his way including with his likely pick for secretary of state exxonmobil ceo rex tillerson who has deep ties with russian leader vladimir putin. >> i've known him since 1999 and i have a very close relationship with him. >> reporter: a plus for president-elect trump. >> to me, a great advantage is he knows many of the players. and he knows them well. he does massive deals in russia. >> reporter: trump's transition also in the spotlight
7:08 am
on "saturday night live" with a surprising dea pick. >> hello, jake. >> walter is amazing. he came highly recommended by steve bannon. >> oh, yeah. steve's the best. we have had some times. >> reporter: that walter white looks a little suspect. as for trump's tweet from 2014 the white house said at the time, president obama has never skipped a presidential daily briefing. another story we're following this morning, amy, concern about president-elect donald trump's latest comments from china, and also in that fox interview, suggesting he is reconsidering america's relationship with taiwan. amy. >> all right, tom, thanks so much. now our chief investigative correspondent brian ross joins us now with more on this, and congress calling for a big investigation into this matter with the russian hacking. what do we know right now? >> first of all, we heard from the russians this morning, and they call the cia assessment,
7:09 am
unfounded, unprofessional, unqualified. but the fact is the russians did target both republicans and democrats during the election. that's according to u.s. and european intelligence officials, as well as members of congress from both sides of the aisle. the russians were much more successful, however, with the democrats than the republicans, which had a better cybersecurity operation. the russians got into two computers connected to the republicans, a consultant and a local party, but they did not get into the main computer at the rnc. >> the big question, motive. were the russians trying to help trump win? >> well, in this case, other intelligence agencies tell us they don't agree with the cia. they say, what they -- what they are analyzing is the russians thought hillary clinton was going to win, they sought to weaken her once she was elected. it wasn't so much about going after trump and getting him elected according to these officials. >> interesting. brian ross, as always. thank you very much. >> let's get more from kellyanne conway, donald trump's senior adviser. thanks for coming back again today. you've got senior u.s. intelligence officials responding to mr. trump's comments over the weekend. here's the written statement from the u.s. intelligence official saying, it is concerning that intelligence on russian actions related to the
7:10 am
u.s. election is being dismissed out of hand as false or politically partisan. the inclination to ignore such intelligence and impugn the integrity of u.s. intelligence officials is contrary to all the sacred to the intelligence officials who work day and night to protect the country. pretty stunning rebuttal. >> it is, but if you look at the "newsweek" article posted you see another cia official counterterrorism expert on the report, which is rare in this instance saying, listen, we can't rush to judgment that after that closed door house intelligence committee briefing last week somebody came out and said -- somebody from the fbi said they disagree, that it's, quote, fuzzy and ambiguous at best, and there is a direct nexus between any effort by the kremlin to hack into this, and the election result. and let's be fair. that's what it is. first it was jim comey's fault and let's have a recall. then it's russian interference then a bunch of people in a movement that we have disavowed many times. how about it just was hillary clinton and the message.
7:11 am
i think they're trying to conflate the two so we -- revisit the election results. >> nobody here is doing that and the president-elect isn't just questioning that cia assessment. he has also questioned the on the record assessment of 17 intelligence agencies that russia was trying to meddle in this election. he says he doesn't believe it. why? >> because these are all unsourced off the record comments. >> this is a public release in october. 17 intelligence official agencies all saying russia was part of this. >> but what he said yesterday is what he is calling laughable and ridiculous, yesterday, george, is the specific conclusion that what russia did led to his victory, and hillary clinton's defeat. that's where our beef is. he respects the intelligence community. he's going to be president of the united states. >> you keep saying he respects it, but he says he doesn't believe their conclusions. saying specifically he does not believe the conclusion of 17 agencies that russia was involved here. >> the conclusion that this helped him win and hillary clinton lose, that's what he said.
7:12 am
very clearly. >> but -- "time" magazine last week, he says, i do not believe the judgment of the intelligence community that russia was behind this. why not? >> behind this meaning the election result -- >> and meddling in our election? >> the other vn that's what investigations are for. if we have the closed door house intelligence committee meeting last week or so then that's what's happening. it's ongoing. i know senator mccain said they would go and i head and open up hearin hearings. fine. bipartisan hearings. the executive would never meddle in that. look, george. let me make clear, the president-elect does not want interference into our politics. but we also don't want politics into the interference of our intelligence and that's what's happening now. people are trying to politicize our intelligence because they don't like the election result. >> the president-elect's likely pick for deputy secretary of state, john bolden, says it was called a false flag. is that right? >> he allowed a wide berth of men and women for the top spot, secretary of state is the fourth highest ranking individual in
7:13 am
our nation's government. very important decision. a leading candidate, rex tillerson, has dealt with russia for many years. it's not like he is pounding down vodka with vladimir putin at a local bar, but he has dealt with him in a business context. we know we don't have a good relationship with a lot of countries including russia. if as secretary of state, mr. tillerson or whoever the president-elect selects can go ahead and improve relationships and advance u.s. interests, and the trump doctrine, we should welcome that. >> not worried about confirmation then? confidential news, senators mccain and rubio questioning tillerson's ties to putin. >> and they know -- i know that senators mccain and rubio will ultimately see mr. tillerson as somebody who is advancing u.s. interests which, of course, they share. at the same time, that's what confirmation hearings are for and incredibly impressive he employs 70,000 people and involved with a $320 billion
7:14 am
global corporation that, frankly, is in 50 countries including russia, yemen, china, the developing world and middle east. we need to stabilize the middle east, and we need somebody, the the fourth highest ranking person in our u.s. government to go around the world and to advance our u.s. interests. >> kellyanne conway, thanks very much. >> thanks sore having me. george, and now turning to that breaking news overnight. the suspect in that road rage trial, accused of killing former new orleans saints player, will smith, found guilty of manslaughter, and abc's ryan smith has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, the man who fatally shot former nfl star, will smith, is a convicted killer. the jury of eight women and four men, sequestered since monday, voting 10-2 to convict 29-year-old cardell hayes of manslaughter for gunning down the former super bowl champion in a deadly road rage incident and attempted manslaughter for shooting his wife. the decision stemmed from a traffic incident in april. this surveillance video shows hayes' red hummer bumped by a car matching smith's suv.
7:15 am
then driving off with the hummer in pursuit. and moments later, according to police, hazelwood allegedly slamming into smith's suv, the pair exchanging words then hayes opening fire. smith dead at the scene. his wife, racquel, shot in the leg. >> my baby! >> reporter: hayes' trial, attended by a bevy of teammates and former saints and coaches of the defensive end. hayes testifying in his own defense saturday claiming smith punched me three or our times saying smith then grabbed a gun from his mercedes. i didn't want to kill will smith. i didn't want to kill nobody. i knew for a fact that i was going to get shot, he testified. but prosecutors disputing that account, saying smith was killed while walking away. racquel smith's spokesperson telling us the smith family's main focus is to see hayes justly sentenced.
7:16 am
hayes' sentencing set for february 17th and faces up to 40 years in prison. >> thank you, ryan. we appreciate it. we switch gears to that big day for hollywood. award seasons kicking into high gear with the golden globe nominations, and chris connelly tracking it all. >> i have never seen it. >> oh, my. you know it's playing at the rialto. >> reporter: "la la land" as well as leading roles for emma stone and ryan gosling. superhero megahit, "deadpool" might be its only competition. as well as comedy, and best actor for ryan reynolds. "moonlight." and supporting actor for herschel ali.
7:17 am
>> get in the car. can't until you unlock the door. >> whatever you decide, you can always stay with us. if he wants to come up weekend. >> do you want to be his guardian? >> he doesn't want to be my guardian. >> we were trying to loosen the kid up at this point. >> reporter: also for best motion picture drama, affleck, for best actor in a picture drama. >> we are nourished by the word of lord. >> some of to us could go for a grilled cheese. >> reporter: and "black-ish." for a musical. >> why am i so bothered by that girl? >> reporter: and tracie ellis ross. >> why are they so much better than we are? >> i don't know. >> reporter: and best actor, anthony anderson. exciting morning for a lot of actors and actresses. some of them we will be talking to in our next hour. george and amy.
7:18 am
>> thank now we got to get back to ginger with the new storm for the west as well. >> another new storm. snow and ice. portland, oregon had up to an inch of ice and trees falling, power lines down so still cleaning up from this mess where the roads are closed and now another new storm making its way in. most of that coming with the moisture from the pineapple express. that moisture coming in. a lot going to stay rain at the coast, but certainly into the mountains. you can see some significant snow is coming in. well, now to the select cities brought to you by burlington.
7:19 am
>> good monday morning, more sunshine, dry, milder this afternoon, unsettled pattern on tuesday through friday with the strongest storm hitting all nazis on thursday and friday. today is 56 to 59 is the spread a couple of degrees warmer than year, tonight will be cooler with 30s in the north bay and the san ramon valley and everyone else in the low-to-mid 40s. tuesday and wednesday is a north bay storm, and thursday is a moderate storm but it could bee >> can i tell you who's pleased with this hit of winter or many hits of winter? the ski and snowboarders because you got to see this video. 120 inches now at mt. hood this season. at this time last year, only 37. so that gives perspective. we had no winter to full on winter. >> they are having a good time. ginger, thanks very much. coming up, dalia dippolito, the woman accused of trying to hire a hitman to kill her husband is now set to take the stand and tell her story. will the jury see that video at

[ almost... there...ental ] hmmmm... save ten when you spend fifty on toys at target.
7:21 am
you guys rock! yeah!... whoaaa! as after a dvt blood clot, i sure had a lot to think about. what about the people i care about? ...including this little girl. and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots.
7:22 am
eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. come on r2! we gotta go! ♪ woohoo!

7:32 am
key video at the center of this case, and abc's linsey davis is here with all the details. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, amy. many may remember her as the woman who said she was 5,000% sure she wanted a hit man to kill her husband but dalia dippolito has said along she is innocent. that she was simply acting for a reality tv show hoax planned by her husband, something she may explain today if she ends up taking the witness stand. this morning, dalia dippolito will be back in the florida courtroom preparing to possibly take the stand in her defense in her murder for hire retrial. >> i'm positive like 5,000% sure. >> reporter: the 34-year-old is accused of paying an undercover officer posing as a hitman, to kill her husband of six months, michael. >> is your husband michael? i'm sorry to tell you, ma'am. he's been killed. >> reporter: in court dippolito's lawyers turned the spotlight on the police
7:33 am
department behind the videos arguing that the boynton beach police department staged this encounter and posted it online to impress the crew of the tv show "cops" and by doing so tainted and put their quest for fame ahead of the integrity of the investigation, something the police department disputes. >> post that on youtube for the whole world to see within six minutes. you don't think that's going to jeopardize -- you're laughing. >> well, because you keep changing the time. >> you think this is funny, ma'am? >> no, i don't, but now you're saying it's six minutes. >> reporter: this is the second time dippolito is being charged for the alleged crime after an appellate court reversed her conviction in 2014. in an interview with our amy robach last december, dippolito maintained her innocence. >> did you want your husband dead? >> no, absolutely not. >> did you hire a hitman to kill your husband? >> no. >> reporter: the judge says once the defense rests its case, he will decide if the jury will see that now infamous youtube video.
7:34 am
amy. >> let's bring in our chief legal analyst dan abrams and the big question whether she will take the stand. what are the risks and benefits? >> she was convicted in the first trial and didn't testify. so that in and of itself is a reason to say maybe she needs to do something different this time around. the problem is this time the theory of the defense has primarily been blame the cops. the cops were trying to impress the show "cops." they were engaged in all sorts of horrible activity and actions, et cetera. if she takes the stand, the focus then returns to, i thought i was on a reality show, and i was faking it all and i was acting. and it's hard to have both the defenses at the same time. so i think that's an argument to suggest she won't take the stand, and look. in case like this, the defense is going to say, look. we're deciding until the last minute, even if they knew from the beginning, she wouldn't testify. >> now, this tape of her reaction when police tell her her husband is dead, so far has been inadmissible. could that change given the
7:35 am
strategy of the defense? >> the prosecution agreed to not admit it into evidence. the judge said, o. we'll leave that out of evidence but now the prosecution is saying the defense has raised it as an issue meaning on cross-examination of the witness you saw there, they essentially brought it up, and they brought up the way the police handled this throughout this case. prosecuto prosecutors are saying, we have to be able to rebut that, and to respond. and so that tape is necessary prosecutors say to allow us to respond to the allegations they've made, the judge saying i'll wait till the end to make that decision, i think part of the decision is going to be connected to does dalia dippolito testify. >> we will find out later today. >> yes. everyone waiting to see. yes. >> dan, thank you. moving on to that scary moment for a family traveling in bad weather. they were relying on their gps, and ended up stranded on a snowy mountain for hours without cell phone service and gio benitez has their story. >> reporter: good morning. listen, this can happen at any moment driving through an unfamiliar area relying on gps like so many of us do when suddenly, you're lost or even
7:36 am
worse, stranded. and in this case, in the snow the. that happened to an oregon family, and this morning, they are definitely lucky to be alive. the sanquist family traveling from oregon to california relied on their gps to give them the quickest route. >> the next thing we know, we just started sliding and we got stuck. >> reporter: but the shortest route, took the family, mom, dad, their 9-year-old daughter and their family dog, straight through the page mountain snow park. where many roads don't get plowed this time of year. their car wouldn't move. the family didn't have a shovel or a cell phone service. the sanquists were stuck there with no help in sight. >> i'm not even sure if i had a shovel, what i could have dug out. >> reporter: they hunkered down till morning when ron hiked two miles to find help, and the family finally reaching 911. >> it was scary because to the left was a downgrade, quite a steep one. >> reporter: search and rescue getting them back on track and issuing this warning for all
7:37 am
drivers. many gps and map systems can steer folks in the wrong direction during winter travel, where conditions are poor. it happened to mark and christine on a trip through yellowstone national park. their gps directed them to a snowy stretch of highway which was closed because of treacherous conditions. >> we never saw any road closed signs. we never saw any barricades. >> all of a sudden, it went to crushed snow to that. >> reporter: they were stuck for eight days. >> we had eight pieces of bread, and nine bottles of, like, 15-ounce bottles of water and packs of jelly. >> reporter: fortunately a snowmobiler spotted them and called the authorities. good news there. in both cases, the long route was probably the best route. as for the sanquists thankfully they had enough food and by the way they finally got to their destination about 17 hours late. >> wow. >> thank god they were safe. >> is there any clues when your gps is going off?
7:38 am
or not really? >> no. i mean, sometimes when you are using something like waze for example, it'll tell you, hey, this is coming up, but in an area like that where people aren't driving around, it's like forget about it. >> scary. >> thanks very much. coming up on the big board, alert for the biggest holiday shopping day. could mark zuckerberg be leaving facebook to run for office? we're back in two minutes. leaving facebook to run for office? we're back in two minutes.

mark zuckerberg related to a bunch of issues, but in the course of that, there were text messages between mark zuckerberg and another member of the board, basically trying to figure out if he could sell all of his stock and still retain some of the power if he decided to pursue something in politics, something in public service. so it all related to a release of text messages between those two. >> mark zuckerberg is a famously introverted individual. what would you think of him as a politician? >> well, i think there's been many introverts as we know it, even serving as the president of the united states. richard nixon was one. abraham lincoln was an introvert, dwight eisenhower. george stephanopoulos is a bit of an introvert, and he's in front of millions of people. so i think it's -- i think it's very -- he could do it. i think part of this is he probably was figuring out if he could serve in a clinton cabinet who he was close to members of her staff. i think that's probably more of what it was about but he could
7:42 am
run for office. >> we introverts do not like to be outed like that, matthew dowd. you saw the back and forth in the filings. there was some concern because zuckerberg is so closely tied to the brand. of facebook. what would happen if he were indeed to leave? >> as we all know, he started this company back in college, and he has built this company in this. my guess is they could find somebody. a perfect person i think would be sheryl sandberg, who served in the organization who serves on the disney board just to let everybody know, i think she would be the perfect person for this. but it is a question about the entirety of the facebook brand which has been so linked, as you say, george, to mark zuckerberg. >> all right. matt dowd. more to. co come on that one. thank you. up next today is something called green monday. i'd explain to george. it is one of the biggest online shopping days of the year but security experts are sending an alert warning millions about a holiday e-mail scam that could be in your in-box and looks like a package delivery notice.
7:43 am
so t.j., tell us what we can look for. >> it's essentially a trap they are sending in your in-box right now, and the crips are waiting to see if you take the bait. let's say, george, the introvert is buying my christmas gift this year. all right. he's probably going to do it online, so all our in-boxes are flooded with all these package, a delivery confirmation, shipping confirmation so the criminals sneak one in that looks like the real deal but they're a fake and what they're trying to do is bait you into opening it but opening an attachment and downloading something, and that ends up with the malware, the virus virus on your computer, or even this new thing that they call ransomware in which they can shut down your computer and then hold it hostage and make you send them payment to unlock your own computer. so that's what you got to look for. >> i've gotten so many. how can people avoid getting caught up in this? >> just a little diligence, take a moment and look at it. fedex, u.p.s., all these legitimate ones tell you we won't send you anything.
7:44 am
so listening. we're not going to ask you for personal information. we won't ask you for anything. that's a certainly a red flag and also the other thing here, just look at that e-mail address. some of them are @ups.com. that's legit, but some of them are @ups, underscore, it. don't download it. >> if you check the better business bureau's naughty list they warn you of ten different holiday scams. what is it about this time of year? >> there are literally, guys. billions of packages that will be shipped this season. all of us, one, are sending things to family and friends, but we are in that good mood, that giving mood. so even scams having to do with charities so people are preying on us being online right now. it is just -- for an opportunist, a criminal opportunist. the perfect time. >> t.j. holmes our resident extrovert. thank you voch. so much. >> when george and i go out we have a great time. >> yin and yang. coming up, first "star wars"

thank you. and this morning, china is expressing what it calls serious concern about donald trump's latest comments on taiwan. it comes after the president-elect said he feels he is not -- he does not feel bound by a one-china policy unless there is a new deal on other things like trade. the state run newspaper there called trump ignorant as a child when it comes to diplomacy. and russia is denying allegations that it interfered with the u.s. election. president-elect trump is also rejecting the cia findings saying claims that russia was trying to help him win are ridiculous. he blames democrats for leaking the information, and earlier on "gma" trump's senior adviser kellyanne conway insisted trump still respects the intelligence community. >> the president-elect does not want interference into our politics, but we also don't want politics into the interference of our intelligence, and that's what's happening now. people are trying to politicize our intelligence because they don't like the election result. >> a bipartisan group of senators is calling for an

investigation into any russian hacking that may have influenced the election. and it was six months ago today when 49 people lost their lives in the massacre at the pulse nightclub in orlando. overnight families and survivors gathered for a vigil at 2:02 a.m., the moment of the attack. they lit candles and read names. a public memorial is tonight. and finally, it sounds like the start of a joke, so bill murray walks into the oval office. the comedian and the president playing some golf. murray faring much better than president obama, but then cue the trash-talking about baseball. murray's cubs won the world series, but the president, he is a white sox fan. >> generally i don't let cubs fans into the oval office. >> it's probably not a coincidence that your popularity is at an all-time high so i would just stick with this if i were you. i would just ride this baby. >> it's not going to happen. >> yeah, right. the video is a plug for obamacare but the real takeaway
8:05 am
here, the president has just a few weeks before he leaves office, and he has got some serious work to do, guys, on his golf game. >> thank you, cecilia. well, bill murray knows how to play golf. lara, welcome back from the weekend. how is "pop news"? >> thank you, guys. happy monday, everybody. [ applause ] on a more serious note to start, madonna has been all over the news. we begin "pop news" talking about madonna speaking out on a deeply emotional and important issue to her, gender equality in the music business. as she accepted billboard's woman of the year award on friday, the queen of pop talked about the double standard she's dealt with her entire career. how women, she says, must play by the, quote, rules. social media is blowing up about this. users are posting their favorite moments of that speech. take a look. >> do not age because to age is a sin. you will be criticized. you will be vilified, and you will definitely not be played on the radio.

[ applause ] well, the amazing thing about this, you know, we only realized that cruz has a cute little voice, you know, about nine months ago, and scoots has been a family friend for a while. so he said, bring him in. see if he enjoys it. but for us, you know, we always want our children -- we always hope they're listening to us or they pay attention to us as parents, and we do a lot of work for charity, for unicef,
8:10 am
and my wife does for the u.n., and cruz came to us very recently, and he said, how about i do to christmas song for charity? all the proceeds go to charity. >> that's great. >> so there's nothing more to this than that at the moment. he's 11 years old still at school concentrating at school. that's the most important thing but he wanted to give back and he has done this amazing little christmas song, which has got a lot of attention and, you know, we're very proud of him. >> as you should be. >> he came to us with the idea. >> you got a little entrepreneur in the family. >> he's having fun. >> and thank you so much for coming by and talking to everybody about unicef and the importance of every penny counts. it makes a huge difference. >> thank you.
