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."
