Exactly one year after winning the seventh season of American Idol, David Cook returned to the finale stage last night to perform “Permanent,” – a song he wrote with Chantal Kreviazuk and Raine Maida.

The studio version of “Permanent” appears on his platinum-selling debut album for 19 Recordings/RCA Records entitled “David Cook.”

The live performance will be available for purchase on iTunes. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure (ABC2), an organization based in Washington, D.C. that is dedicated to finding a cure for brain cancer.

Earlier this month, Cook raised money and awareness for ABC2 by running in the organization’s 5K “Race for Hope” in the District of Columbia.

Now, the live recording of “Permanent” will be available as a charity single on iTunes for one month, raising more money to benefit ABC2.

The organization uses an entrepreneurial venture philanthropy approach to bring more treatments to patients sooner by stimulating new research and accelerating the development of new therapies for brain cancer.

ABC2 looks forward to the day when all patients who are diagnosed with brain cancer can be told they have a manageable disease.
