21ST CENTURY FOX PARTNERS WITH GIVE A NOTE FOUNDATION TO HONOR "AMERICAN IDOL" SERIES FINALE BY SUPPORTING MUSIC PROGRAMS AT U.S. SCHOOLS

21CF businesses have donated more than $1M to Give a Note Foundation since 2011

21st Century Fox and Give a Note Foundation today announced a new wave of 21st Century Fox Give a Note Grants, which will support up to 20 under-funded music education programs at schools across the United States. The partnership commemorates the series finale of AMERICAN IDOL, the cultural phenomenon that changed the face of television and created some of music's biggest stars. Throughout its 15-season run, the series has inspired millions of young students to learn more about music and participate in school music programs across the country.

To identify the recipient schools, 21st Century Fox will work closely with Give a Note Foundation, a leading nonprofit dedicated to supporting and strengthening music education programs. The organization engages the business community to play a critical role in resource development and awareness-raising activities that improve access to music education. Fans can show their support by retweeting #IdolGAN.

"AMERICAN IDOL has had an incredible impact on music in this country. Not only has it introduced America to some of the decade's most talented young artists, it has served as a platform to show why music is so critical," said Jane Mell Balek, Chief Operating Officer, Give a Note Foundation. "We are excited to continue working with 21st Century Fox to honor AMERICAN IDOL with a new phase of our grant program that will allow us to reach even more schools across the country."

"Over the past 15 seasons, AMERICAN IDOL has brought innumerable styles of music and a diverse range of artists into millions of viewers' homes," said Shira Oberlander, Executive Director of Social Impact at 21st Century Fox. "We are very proud to honor that legacy by backing the Give A Note Foundation and supporting music education at schools across America."

AMERICAN IDOL will kick off its three-night Grand Finale week on Tuesday, April 5 (8:00-9:30 PM ET/PT), with the 90-minute retrospective AMERICAN IDOL: AMERICAN DREAM. The following night, America's most crucial - and last-ever - vote will take place when the remaining finalists battle it out live from Dolby Theatre on Wednesday, April 6 (8:00-9:00 PM live ET/tape-delayed PT) and the final IDOL will be crowned on Thursday, April 7 (8:00-10:06 PM live ET/tape-delayed PT).
