NEW HYDE PARK - Some very sick children were able to take a break from their doctors today and meet with two of their favorite "American Idol" performers.

Singers Naima Adedapo and Jacob Lusk from the hit television show paid a visit to kids and their families at the Ronald McDonald House in New Hyde Park.

The children, including 4-year-old Hassan Khazaal, who was badly disfigured by a car bomb in Iraq, say it was fun to meet the Idols in person and get their autographs.

For extended footage of the singers at the Ronald McDonald House, tune to channel 612 on your iO digital cable box and select iO Extra.
