The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) will be having a telethon called Show of Strength.

It will air on tons of networks and stream live online.

The three hour program will have several performances by artists like Carrie Underwood, Pitbull, Gavin DeGraw, but Will.i.am will kick off the event.

He will have Lucas Cook, an MDA Los Angeles Goodwill Ambassador perform with him!

He said:

"MDA has been helping children and adults for more than 50 years, and I am pleased to collaborate with them to help save lives. I am on a mission to transform the lives of young people who need extra support and really am honored to perform on the show – and it was important for me to include Lucas and other MDA kids in our performance."

This is one of the more famous telethons, hosted for years and years by Jerry Lewis.

Hopefully Will.i.am will not only breathe some fresh air into the telethon, but hopefully his fame will help drive donations up.

Way to go, Will!
