‘American Idol’ Top 20 Covers Bill Withers’ ‘Lean On Me’ in Support of Feeding America

The American Idol Top 20 united together with judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie on Thursday (April 23) to cover Bill Withers’ iconic song “Lean On Me.”

Host Ryan Seacrest and mentor Bobby Bones also joined in on the action, as the video serves as a PSA in support of Feeding America. The PSA debuted on ABC’s “Good Morning America” Thursday morning.

“Hey America, our Idol family wants you to know that you are not alone. During this crisis, over 37 million people do not have access to nutritious food. We can lean on each other. Learn more at FeedingAmerica.org/FeedTheLove,” explained the Idol cast.

Given the current global health crisis, Idol has been forced to film the upcoming live shows remotely. This coming Sunday (April 26), Idol’s Top 20 contestants will compete from their homes across the U.S. and Canada, fighting for one of those coveted Top 10 spots.

During this season’s live shows, contestants are self-filming their performances via their phones. And even though their performance are being handled remotely, the contestants are singing their hearts out in hopes of earning fans’ votes.

Viewers can visit FeedingAmerica.org/FeedTheLove for more information and to take action.

American Idol returns with a two-hour special on Sunday, April 26 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
