Wyclef Jean compares the dire situation in his native Haiti to an apocalypse.

"We spent the day picking up dead bodies, all day that's what we did. There's so much bodies in the streets that the morgues are filled up, the cemeteries are filled up," the singer, 37, told Fox News Friday from Port-Au-Prince, where bodies are still being dug out of rubble days after the earthquake struck.

Jean is among the growing list of celebrities pitching in to raise funds to assist the Caribbean nation.
