I think this deserves its own thread flowers.gif
press Release via PRNewswire:

AMERICAN IDOL to Benefit the UN Foundation Fund for Haiti Thursday, February 25, on FOX

IDOL Results Show to Spotlight Kris Allen's Trip to Haiti with the UN Foundation

Funds Raised will support the UN as it Helps Earthquake Victims

WASHINGTON, Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The United Nations Foundation announced today it is partnering with AMERICAN IDOL for an episode on February 25 dedicated to Haiti. During the IDOL results show on FOX on Thursday, February 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), IDOL winner Kris Allen will perform and will share footage of his trip to Haiti with the UN Foundation to raise awareness and funds that will benefit the United Nations as it works with Haitians to help rebuild the country.

"We are proud to partner with FOX and AMERICAN IDOL on this special episode," said Kathy Calvin, CEO of the United Nations Foundation. "We are working directly with the UN to help Haiti address the medium and long-term challenges of reconstruction. The UN needs our support to continue to provide food, water, shelter, medicine, security, and economic opportunities to the earthquake victims. The UN and Haiti are rising to the challenge and we all have a chance to help them rebuild their future."

Calvin and Kris Allen, an American singer-songwriter from Jacksonville, Arkansas, and the winner of the eighth season of AMERICAN IDOL, will travel to Haiti on February 19, 2010. During the trip, they will meet with Haitians and UN staff to learn how people are recovering from the earthquake and find out what they will need in the months to come.

"I'm looking forward to traveling to Haiti to see the UN's work firsthand," said Allen. "The people of Haiti are rebuilding their country, and the UN is there to help them every step of the way. I look forward to sharing the images and stories from my trip with IDOL viewers across the country."

Since the earthquake, the United Nations has been working hand-in-hand with Haitians to help them recover. In the months ahead, the UN's life-saving work will continue, including delivering food and water to millions of Haitians, providing jobs opportunities for employment to more than 200,000 people, ensuring women and children are safe, and mitigating diseases such as measles and malaria.

The UN is close to reaching its appeal for $540 million. To learn more about the UN's work in Haiti and how to donate, visit www.unfoundation.org/idol. Donations to the UN Foundation are tax-deductible.

The UN Foundation is one of the beneficiaries of IDOL GIVES BACK, the television event raising awareness and funds to benefit various U.S. and international charities. The special will air during the Top 7 Results Show Wednesday, April 21, 2010 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.

About the United Nations Foundation

This is a long shot, but it would be beyond amazing and I will continue to hope for it until I see that it doesnt happen.

Kris performs I Need to Know while on the piano. He announces that all sales of the single will go towards Haiti relief (just like David Cook did with Permanent for cancer relief). The impact this would have would be much greater then another LLWD performance. Song fits in great with the whole IGB theme and this would expose millions of people to a part of Kris' album that they would NEVER be able to hear on the radio.

Even if he decides not to perform LLWD, I think we should still see a decent boost to the sales of this song just for appearing on the show.

That would be too early. I'm sure he'll have another chance on his second guesting as most AI winners have appeared twice on the show.

Agree with you phenixxx 100% -- LLWD in that situation would be DISASTROUS!

I love the idea of Kris at the piano singing "I Need To Know" with pictures from his visit with the Haitians on the screen behind him. If that doesn't touch everyones heart, I don't know what would.

one of them, it seems, is the same lady who i accidentally emailed, who egged other Adam fans on to post my home address on the AI.com forums. and she's like 40 and acting like a 5 year old. sad stuff. rolleyes.gif


Uhm...WOW. That's sad. They need to get a life. blink2.gif


Anyways, back on topic. giggle.gif I got a feeling that Kris isn't going to perform LLWD; he's probably going to perform a different song. A couple of you guys mentioned INTK, so I agree as well. thumbsup.gif

Do you think he's perform the new single? Or maybe not one of his songs, but a cover?
