Lady Gaga has announced she will be donating proceeds from her upcoming Radio City Music Hall show in New York to the Haiti earthquake appeal.
The singer – real name Stefani Germanotta – made the announcement during her appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show on Friday (January 15) where she likened the devastation in the country to 9/11.
She said: "Haiti's still suffering... I was thinking earlier, because I was in New York during 9/11 and I always felt, the level of disaster isn't in the neighbourhood of what is happening in Haiti, but I just remember feeling nobody really understood.
“And I worry that young people don't know enough about what's going on there."
All ticketing and merchandising from the January 24 New York concert will go to various relief organisations helping in Haiti where hundreds of thousands are feared dead.
Showing no signs of the illness which caused her to collapse ahead of her show in Indiana on Thursday, Gaga appeared on the chat show alongside Avatar director James Cameron.
