Susan Boyle has opened up on how proud she is to be helping the people of Haiti during their time of need by taking part in the song to raise money for relief efforts.

The 48-year-old laid down her vocals on the version of REM’s “Everybody Hurts” that is being made to help raise money for the earthquake-hit nation.

“It is just awful what is happening in Haiti. I’ve seen some of it on the TV and it’s so sad,” said Boyle.

“To be asked to do this with all these talented singers is just great, it’s such an honor. It would be lovely to meet Rod Stewart, being a fellow Scot.”

I say good on you Susan or putting you star name to this stellar effort!
