American Idol season 7 winner David Cook used his incredible talent to help raise money while performing Wednesday night at the ‘Do The Wright Thing Gala’ held at Hard Rock Café in NYC.

The fourth annual ‘Do The Wright Thing Gala’ was held to benefit Major League Baseball player David Wright's charitable foundation. While Cook performed “Heroes”, “Life on the Moon”, “Light On,” and others, guests were privy to a silent/live auction, a full buffett and a ton of smiles.

The annual gala is one of the primary fundraisers for the David Wright Foundation and has helped pave the way for Wright to gain a reputation as one of the baseball’s foremost philanthropists, earning him a nomination for baseball’s Roberto Clemente Award.

Cook’s self-titled album officially drops on Nov. 18. “The record is different from what people saw on ‘American Idol.’ I was able to make a rock record that to me is eclectic. But I don’t think I have completely alienated the people who supported me,” said Cook. “I wrote or co-wrote 10 of the 12 songs on the album. I was involved with everything — the music, lyrics and I helped design the art on the CD. I wanted it to be a very accurate definition of who I am.”
