He’ll be returning to the “American Idol” stage tonight, but Kris Allen will be doing more than just performing- he’ll be raising awareness and funds for the earthquake victims in Haiti.

Speaking of his recent trip to the island nation, Allen told press, "It was a weird trip, because you get over there — everyone's seen the pictures and stuff and the videos — it's really bad. It's a lot of destruction. A lot of people have been affected by it. But there's a lot of stuff going on."

On the positive side, many different charity and relief organizations "have done so many amazing things for the Haitian people and gave that nation a lot of hope for the future."

Kris added, "I wanted to go over there and help. I felt like I did that in a little way. I think that me being on the show is going to be a bigger help than me going there with the little bit of manpower that I have."
