American Idol season 10 alum Casey Abrams’ pilgrimage to Ethiopia is set to debut Friday night (June 24) on the Africa Channel as part of the First Time Africa series.

Abrams was invited by his old high school friend Sean Stromsoe, who was journeying to the country to film a project for Ethiopia Skate, a nonprofit dedicated to raise money to purchase skateboards for Ethiopian children. “He was filming kids and helping out with getting kids on the streets skateboards,” he said.
