American Idol is prepping a second edition of its Idol Gives Back fund-raiser, which will air April 9 at 8 p.m.

According to Variety, the two-hour event on FOX will include performances and appearances by stars and artists yet to be named.

Last year's Idol Gives Back raised $75 million for charities in the U.S. and Africa. Funds went to domestic medical care, groceries and literacy programs for underprivileged children; the Africa funds went to orgs that handle health and education programs.
