American Idol Spotlights Malaria Crisis During Idol Gives Back, April 9, On FOX

Malaria No More to Continue Idol's Fight against Malaria

NEW YORK, March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- American Idol and FOX announced that this year's Idol Gives Back, airing Wednesday, April 9 (7:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, will raise awareness and funds to fight malaria in Africa for the second year in a row as part of its star-studded event.

Malaria No More is honored to once again be named a beneficiary of Idol Gives Back, which last year raised more than $76 million, including $9 million for Malaria No More and over $8 million for other malaria-related causes.

In 2007, funds raised for Malaria No More by Idol fans and corporate sponsor ExxonMobil provided life-saving bed nets to more than one million mothers and children in Angola, Mali, Madagascar, Uganda and Zambia.

Malaria is a preventable and treatable disease that claims over one million lives every year; an African child dies every 30 seconds of the disease.

Malaria No More and Idol stars have worked closely to combat malaria over the last year. In June, Melinda Doolittle and Malaria No More joined First Lady Laura Bush in Zambia to distribute insecticide-treated mosquito nets. Last month, 2007 Idol winner Jordin Sparks joined President and Mrs. Bush in Ghana to perform and highlight malaria-control efforts.

Former Idol finalist Elliott Yamin traveled to Angola this month to see malaria programs sponsored by Malaria No More and ExxonMobil, a sponsor of Idol Gives Back 2007.

"I was shocked to learn of the devastation caused by malaria," said Sparks. "It's incredible what a difference a simple mosquito net can make in the life of a child."

"Idol Gives Back will let Americans know what they can do to help in the fight against malaria," said Kate Campana, Managing Director of Malaria No More. "When a $10 bed net saves a life, every Idol fan can be a hero."

In addition to Malaria No More, Idol Gives Back will raise funds for the Children's Defens
