"Idol Gives Back", one of the most lauded events in Hollywood this week, will air tonight April 10 on FOX starting from 7:30 P.M. EST PT. Mariah Carey is one of the performers of the charity show, singing her 2006 single "Fly Like a Bird" and the footage has just made a circulation on the net.
Carey who wears simply jeans and a black tank top was given the last spot on the performance section to close the show. The show's judge Randy Jackson was there to back her up on the bass and a choir also appeared in the middle of the song. Prior to her, a number of celebrities including Brad Pitt, Miley Cyrus, Snoop Dogg, Robin Williams, Celine Dion, Forest Whitaker, Billy Crystal and Carrie Underwood have either taken the stage to perform or simply deliver their message to encourage viewers to donate.
