The British singer wants to help Haitian earthquake victims directly as she reveals her plan to fly to Haiti, hoping that she will be strong enough to watch what the disaster has brought.

British singer is planning a trip to Haiti after watching moving news coverage from the earthquake-stricken country. "" star was quick to lend her vocal talents to Simon Cowell's Haiti charity single, a cover of 's "Everybody Hurts", which he co-ordinated with the help of British newspaper The Sun.

But Burke wants to do even more for the Haitian aid effort - and jumped at the chance to visit the struggling nation. She says, "When The Sun asked if I would go to see things for myself, I didn't hesitate. If I can raise awareness about how much support is needed then I'm there in a heartbeat."

"I don't think that anyone can prepare for what it'll be like but I will try to be strong. Watching the news was like a disaster film but this was real."
