Tonight and tomorrow, one in ten Americans will sit down in their
living rooms and tune-in to American Idol for a special episode
called "Idol Gives Back."
We are excited to announce that Bono will be making
an appearance Wednesday night on behalf of ONE
urging the millions of Americans watching the show to
join us in the fight against extreme poverty. Bono will
meet with the Idol contestants to talk with them about
ONE and the difference your advocacy is making in the lives
of the world's poorest people. The Idol contestants will also
perform "American Prayer," a song written by Bono and
Dave Stewart about the AIDS emergency in Africa.
We need your help to make sure your friends and family are
watching. Spread the word about tonight and tomorrow's shows!
This is a great way to introduce friends and family to ONE.
Invite them to join you in the fight against extreme poverty.
Forward this e-mail to friends and family and ask them to join today
by visiting: www.ONE.org
Wednesday night's show will be a two-hour special hosted by Ellen
and featuring appearances by Celine Dion, Kelly Clarkson, Gwen Stefani,
Earth, Wind & Fire, Il Divo, Keira Knightley, Hugh Grant, Josh Groban
with the African Children's Choir, Jack Black, Helen Mirren, Rascal Flatts,
Quincy Jones, Carrie Underwood, Annie Lennox and many more.
We are excited about what the next two days could mean for the fight against AIDS and extreme poverty. Because of your continued support and involvement, extreme poverty is getting the national attention it so badly needs. When millions of people come together as ONE voice, anything is possible.
Thank you for your energy and dedication,
Susan McCue, ONE.org
