Andrea Gross has been approached by The Rock Star Superstar Project to deliver a message on their new album which will raise awareness of the importance of sobriety.

The mother of tragic DJ AM has lent her support to a new music project she hopes will convince kids to stay sober. Twin brother duo The Rock Star Superstar Project approached Andrea Gross to deliver a message on their new album "", which is being released in September in conjunction with Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselors and to coincide with National Recovery Month.

Gross' personal message has not been revealed, but the siblings - who legally changed their names to Rock Star and Super Star - insist DJ AM is still a powerful role model, a year after his overdose death. Super Star says, "DJ AM was a role model to many kids and adults struggling to come to terms with their addiction and despite the terms of his death, DJ AM did make the difference he set out to and even after his death, is conveying a message to the importance of sobriety."

His brother adds, "Our goal with the CD is to send a strong message that living a life without drugs and alcohol is the only way to achieve your dream. Since we know there are kids who would rather listen to music than read a book, we are using music to reach them in the language they understand."
