Country Music superstar Keith Urban and his wife Nicole Kidman are planning on funding a school in Haiti, according to an interview with Urban on Cat Country 96 FM in Pennylvania.

"We're actually going to be funding a school down there for the next five years," Urban said. "It's in Port-Au-Prince. The kids will also have one hot meal a day. They'll have all of their medical [needs] taken care of by the school and clothing as well."

The project is headed up by Kidman and the Oscar-winning director Paul Haggis and his Artists for Peace and Justice organization. Urban and Kidman plegded $50,000 per year for the next five years in support of the school.

This is not Urban and Kidman's first attempt at relief for those in Haiti' the couple appeared at the Hope For Haiti Now telethon last month.
