I didn't know who he was until I heard the songs"I'm leaving"and "How do you sleep" and I was wondering who is this guy. I thought he was black from the voice and the tone of the person singing. I first heard him on Rick Dees AND The weekly Top40 Countdown. Then later i saw him on TV in the Video and said to my self His white and he's a kid. Later in the year, I saw Alvin and the Chipmunks and his name up with the cast as Theodore I said to myself that no one could have played it better. Theodore was this little chipmunk who needed love and protection from being 'dumped' as a baby chipmunk. He had this big bum and tiny baby voice. He was also the first to admit he loved Dave(Jason Lee) and after the movie I found out that it came out 2007 and I was watching it 2009. The movie was a great one.
