Brad Pitt, Miley Cyrus and more to appear on "Idol Gives Back"
Last year, "American Idol's" “Idol Gives Back” charity event raised an incredible $76 million for poverty-stricken young people in the U.S. and Africa. President Bush, Prince Charles and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown all commended the program for its monumental impact.
On April 9, the Emmy Award-winning special returns, and it’s drawing some serious star power. Confirmed guests include Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Miley Cyrus, Carrie Underwood, Fergie, Snoop Dogg, Chris Daughtry, Mariah Carey, Annie Lennox, Bono, John Legend, Eli Manning and Peyton Manning.
This year, like last year, the funds will go to improving healthcare, education and water quality in impoverished areas.
