Tuesday, February 23, 2010 17:15 GMTLOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Despite the devastation in Haiti, locals still know how have a good time.
Reigning American Idol winner Kris Allen visited Haiti with the UN Foundation last week and reports that Haitians are surprisingly positive and playful especially the local children.
Between clearing rubble and handing out food he was able to hang out with some kids, one of whom could be the next Haitian idol.
Allen says one boy sang with him while playing a Coke bottle with a rubber band around it the most memorable moment of his trip.
The singer, whos previously done missionary work in Thailand and Africa, hopes people realize that rebuilding Haiti is a long process.
Hell show clips from his trip this Thursday (Feb. 25) on American Idol and urge folks to continue sending donations.
Allen is nervous to hit the Idol stage again, but is glad all the fuss isnt about him this time.
