This summer, the student chorus of New York City's PS22 honored American Idol season 11 winner Phillip Phillips with their cover of his hit, "Home."

Now, Phillips will pay back New York in a big way with a special Nov. 15 concert to be held and webcast on Stageit.com. Phillips will join the middle school chorus at their Staten Island school, with all proceeds from the performance benefitting The Siller Foundation and The Red Cross.
