David Cook Talks Ethiopia Trip with UN Foundation

American Idol Season 7 winner David Cook and his guitar player Neal Tiemann arrive in Ethiopia as guests of the United Nations Foundation to learn about the challenges adolescent girls face in many parts of the world.

While in Ethiopia, Cook will visit the United Nations’ Biruh Tesfa (Bright Future) Project to see firsthand how the UN Foundation is supporting the work of the UN to educate and empower girls. Footage of Cook’s trip to Ethiopia will be featured during Idol Gives Back on Wednesday (April 21) @ 8PM ET/PT on FOX.

“I am excited to see the UN Foundation’s work in Ethiopia firsthand,” said Cook. “In so many parts of the world, girls and young women are denied the chance to fulfill their dreams, just because they are girls. But the ‘Biruh Tesfa’ project is proof that global problems can be solved, we just have to start. I look forward to sharing the images and stories from my trip with American Idol viewers across the country.”
