Celebrity super couple Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman were in Melbourne, Australia on Friday, June 13th to attend the Swisse Celebrate Live Ball.

After the sing-along, which included accompaniment from Kidman and the staff, the American Idol judge donated the guitar to the hospital's neonatal intensive care ward, along with a special inscription saying, "with love Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman".

About KEITH URBAN
In September 2013, Keith Urban released his seventh studio album, "Fuse." It marked the only time that a male country artist has debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre charts in the United States, Canada and Australia. The album's first single, "Little Bit of Everything," took the top spot on the Country Singles Chart, as did "We Were Us," featuring Miranda Lambert, marking Urban's 15th and 16th No. 1 songs.
The American Idol XIII judge, who this year takes his seat beside Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr., has seen a year of endless accomplishments. He received his first Golden Globe Award nomination for his song "For You." Additionally, he performed with the Rolling Stones and at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Concerts.
In 2001, the Country Music Association honored Urban with its Horizon Award, designating him a talented artist with a bright future. He is the first Horizon Award winner in history to go on to win the CMA's Male Vocalist of the Year, a title he's captured three times, and the coveted Entertainer of the Year. More than 15 million albums later, Keith is a four-time Grammy Award winner who has also won a People's Choice and American Music Award. He's won five Academy of Country Music Awards, had 15 No. 1s, including 28 Top 5 hits, and has had five consecutive Platinum or multi-Platinum albums. In 2012, he became a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Urban's reputation as a songwriter, musician, vocalist and virtuoso guitarist is no more evident than when he is onstage. His electrifying concerts have played to sold-out venues from Australia to Germany, England to Canada and the United States. In fact, 2009's Escape Together World Tour, as well as 2007's Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy World Tour, were both, one of the top grossing tours for their respective years.
