Bush stated: "Part of my school's requirement was to do a play.I was really irritated because I wanted to play volleyball and I had to go and do this play.Yet, Foster the People—who kicked off the night with a "Pumped Up Kicks" performance—stole our hearts with their sound, their service and their message. We sat down with Mark Foster, Mark Pontius, and Cubbie Fink to find out why they embody the Do Something! ELLE: Originally your name was "Foster and the People." Do you live up to the nurturing adaptation? I feel like a lot of the music that we make is very empathetic and compassionate. When we first started the band, we were doing things with charities.

So, yeah, I definitely felt like I was a fish out of water there. My sister is involved in that, so I went down there a couple of times.

ELLE: Growing up, did you participate in community service projects? I use to go down to Mexico and build houses and things like that through Habitat for Humanity and then I lived in South Africa for a couple of years and worked for a non-profit down there right after high school in 2002 through 2004. MF: We're starting our charity this fall ["Foster the Future"—a partnership with the Do Good Bus to create the Do Good Tour. After that, I think now we're starting to get use to it, you know.
