A former “American Idol” winner will sing on the show next week as part of an effort to raise funds for Haitian earthquake recovery, the Associated Press reports.
The former winner is Kris Allen, who won the "Idol" crown last season.
It’s Allen’s first appearance on the show this season. The money will go to the Idol Gives Back Foundation, which will give it to the U.N. Foundation’s Haitian projects. The show is also planning an “Idol Gives Back” episode for April.
