This year American Idol adds Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart to their lineup of performers for the program’s charitable event show known as “Idol Gives Back.”
Annie Lennox, whom I believe appeared on last year’s show is also scheduled to appear as well as Bono of U2 fame. I have not yet heard any additional classic rock names scheduled to appear on the program but there are expected to be additional announcements.
“Idol Gives Back” is described as “a music celebration raising awareness and benefiting various U.S. and international charities.”
Last year the show helped raised $76 Million dollars for various charities that operate both here in the U.S. and in Africa.
The program is scheduled to air on the Fox Network on April 9.
Thanks to Heartlinker for the heads up.
