Osmond Pays Tribute To Haitian Survivors

MARIE OSMOND paid tribute to citizens of earthquake-devastated Haiti as she picked up a woman of the year award for her charity work at the weekend (23Jan10).
The singer was honoured by the Nevada Ballet Theatre for her foundation, the Children's Miracle Network, which treats ill youngsters and has raised more than $3.6 billion since the 1980s.
Osmond used her speech at the Las Vegas ceremony to recognise survivors in Haiti, who have shown courage and strength since an earthquake hit the country on 12 January (10) - and reveals her organisation is aiding the ongoing relief effort.
She tells ETOnline.com, "I think the most important thing is the arts are related whether you sing, whether you dance, whatever. What is going on in Haiti... it brought joy to my heart to see these people going through this incredible sorrow, and what did they do? They formed circles and danced and sang and lifted their spirits.
"A lot of our doctors and nurses have gone over to Haiti, but the really difficult cases are being flown back and treated in our hospitals."
