American Idol Gives Back!

Ok, I have to admit that I'm an American Idol junkie along with other reality shows that I won't admit at this time.
I was watching the American Idol show tonight and they gave a preview of the American Idol Gives Back Show coming on April 9th. They showed a video of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and the orphans living on the street. As many of you know, this is where we are adopting from. This is where a portion of the 76 million went that they raised last year. I was crying by the end of the video. It was astonishing and sad as you can imagine. I wanted to take all the orphans home with me. For all the money that American Idol makes, it's good to see that they give back. I couldn't find the video online with tonight's clip but you can watch the general clip (click here) for the upcoming event. If you have TIVO or DVR, make sure you watch the American Idol Addis Ababa piece from tonight.

Below is the video with Carrie Underwood from last year's Idol's Give Back when she went to Africa.

I didn't see it, but heard about how sad it saw.
Did you always have that adoption video in your sidebar? I just put on my last post. How funny......
I think it in the sidebar better.

Leah, I actually have two adoption videos on my blog that I posted when I first started a blog. After they got to be on older pages, I decided to put them on my sidebar a while back so people could see them. When I redid my blog template it erased the side bar so I had to put it back on a few nights ago.
Talk to ya later.

Amber,
I missed the episode :( But I think/hope that it will be on again this coming Wed. I'll have to check it out if it's on. I also love AI! Can't help it.
