Apple’s iTunes Store is now offering select performances from American Idol’s charity event Idol Gives Back. A message on the Idol Gives Back site reads, “iTunes has come together with Idol Gives Back to show how digital music and video support this cause. Much of the show will be available for download afterwards, so you can be part of this amazing event. iTunes will pass all net proceeds from the sale of Idol Gives Back content to the event’s charity-CPEF (Charity Projects Entertainment Fund). For all visitors to iTunes from the americanidol.com site from now until May 23rd, an additional percentage of your total iTunes purchases will go to CPEF.” Currently available videos range in price from $1 to $2.
