by at . Comments

We just talked about Elliott Yamin participating in a tennis event that will raise money for Virginia charities. It turns out he's not the only American Idol star in the news for such a reason today.

The Original IdolKelly Clarkson will be performing this Thursday, November 9, at 7:30 pm at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood for a benefit to honor legendary singer Tony Bennett, who will be celebrating his 80th birthday.

Also appearing at the event will be Hollywood stars George Clooney, Billy Crystal, Paul Newman, Jack Nicholson, Bruce Willis and others.

Proceeds of the benefit will go to Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Camps charity.

She'll be a hit, there's no doubt about that. It's always great to see the amazing Kelly Clarkson and her American Idol counterparts performing for good causes.
