Charlotte Church is so desperate to help victims of the south east Asian tsunami, she was prepared to beg organisers of a fundraising concert in Wales to let her appear.

The VOICE OF AN ANGEL singer could have been injured by the tidal wave herself if she hadn't cancelled a Christmas (25DEC04) holiday to the Maldives.

So she was relieved organisers of the charity gig spared her the humiliation of pleading, by allowing her to join Eric Clapton, Feeder, MANIC STREET PREACHERS and Badly Drawn Boy at the 22 January (05) show at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

She says, "As soon as I saw there was a concert I wanted to be involved. There was a lot of speculation where it was going to be held but when I found out it was in Cardiff I said to my manager, 'Get on the phone, I want to do this concert!'

"I would have got on my knees to beg to do it, but thankfully I didn't have to as they said yes straight away."
