Soul star Alicia Keys has temporarily shelved all of her commitments so she can appear in every telethon held to raise cash for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The KARMA singer, who performed at last night's (09SEP05) TV benefit SHELTER FROM THE STORM: A CONCERT FOR THE GULF COAST, insists she'll gladly give her time free to all major telethons planned for the coming weeks.

She says, "Every day I am saying to myself, `My God, what can I do to be more helpful and more efficient, and really make an impact so that these people, our people, our human family can heal."
