AMERICAN IDOL's Kris Allen Invites Fans in D.C. to an IDOL GIVES BACK Watch Party, Hosted by The United Nations Foundation and HOT 99.5
Date:4/21/2010

IDOL GIVES BACK to Benefit the UN Foundation, Wednesday, April 21, on FOX

Washington, D.C. (Vocus) April 21, 2010 -- AMERICAN IDOL Season 8 winner Kris Allen is visiting Washington, D.C. today as a guest of the United Nations Foundation to meet with students and political leaders to talk about his recent trip to Haiti and will join D.C. area IDOL fans at an IDOL GIVES BACK watch party. Allen will raise awareness about ongoing relief efforts and his cooperation with the UN Foundation to support the UN’s relief efforts in Haiti.

In February, Kris Allen and Kathy Calvin, CEO of the United Nations Foundation, traveled to Haiti and learned first-hand about the country’s continuing needs following January’s devastating earthquake. During the IDOL results show on Thursday, February 25, Allen performed The Beatles’ “Let it be” and shared footage of his trip. Allen’s performance was available on iTunes, with all proceeds going to the UN’s Haiti recovery.

“We want to thank all IDOL fans who already donated to help the UN help Haiti,” said Kathy Calvin. “The United Nations’ ongoing relief efforts in Haiti have accomplished significant good but still face significant challenges. Hundreds of thousands of Haitians have received help with access to water, health, and communications. There is still a lot more work ahead, and we want to help the UN as it faces these challenges together with the people of Haiti.”

“It was an intense trip, seeing all the rubble and devastation, although there was a lot of hope as well,” said Kris Allen. “The Haitians aren’t out of the woods yet, but together we can help keep their hopes alive and help Haiti to build a hopeful future.”

The IDOL GIVES BACK Watch Party with 19 Recordings/Jive Records artist Kris Allen, hosted by Hot 99.5 and the UN Foundation, takes place on Wednesday, April 21, 7:00-10:30 p.m., at the Hard Rock Cafe, 999 E St. NW, Washington, D.C. This event is free and open to the public, as space allows. Kris Allen will visit a music class at The School Without Walls (2130 G St. NW, Washington DC 20037) on Wednesday, April 21 from 1:30-2:30 p.m. to talk with students about his trip to Haiti.

IDOL GIVES BACK, the Emmy-winning television event and musical celebration developed by AMERICAN IDOL creator Simon Fuller, will air on Wednesday, April 21 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX and highlight of the work of the UN Foundation and the United Nations. The show will give viewers the opportunity to donate to featured UN Foundation programs, including Haiti relief and empowering women and girls in Ethiopia. To access resources on how to organize a watch party and how to donate, visit www.unfoundation.org/idol. Donations to the UN Foundation are tax-deductible.

The concept for the IDOL GIVES BACK Foundation was the brainchild of AMERICAN IDOL creator and executive producer Simon Fuller. The organization began as a meaningful way for those behind AMERICAN IDOL to give back in a significant way to causes throughout the world. IDOL GIVES BACK was successfully launched as a charity event in 2007. To date, over $140 million dollars has been donated.
