Kris Allen, American Idol to Help Haiti

by at . Comments

Over the last couple years, American Idol has made impressive use of its forum to raise money for important cause with its Idol Gives Back special.

That event will take place again on April 21. But Kris Allen and Fox will help bring attention to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti long before that.

Last season's champion has headed to that ravaged nation and will perform on the February 25 edition of Idol. He'll share live footage from his trip and ask viewers to make donations online or via text message during the episode.

"It is heartbreaking to see the devastation that Haiti is currently facing," Allen said. "I am truly honored to be traveling to Haiti to see the U.N.'s relief efforts firsthand and to help out any way that I can."

I used to live in the refugee camp. We feel so happy when people come to give us food and supply. I am so proud of Kris not only for his best music but also his good heart. I really addict to his music since I saw him first time on top 36. God bless you Kris. Wait to see you on IGB.

Kris is not only a great musician, he also has a huge heart and is a wonderful goodwill ambassador for the AI program and for us all. Love his album. Can't stop listening to it.

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
