iTunes Store Positions American Idol Charity Downloads
American Idol fans can now download and donate, thanks to a fresh offering on the iTunes Store. The digital download destination is now positioning performances from American Idol Gives Back, a recent benefit concert featuring Kelly Clarkson, Gwen Stefani, Earth, Wind & Fire, Celine Dion, Hugh Grant, Josh Groban, and others. The downloads will benefit anti-poverty campaigns in both the United States and Africa. The funds are being distributed across a number of charitable organizations, including Second Harvest, the Boys & Girls Club, and the Charity Projects Entertainment Fund. Others are also part of the campaign, including Fox, which donated 10 cents (7 euro cents) for every phoned vote. The network capped its donation at 50 million votes, resulting in a $5 million purse. Elsewhere, Ellen DeGeneres contributed $100,000 to the cause, edging the dollar value towards $6 million. Donations from the iTunes feature last through May.
