Top stars including, Carina Lau, Li Yapeng, Faye Wong, Na Ying and Huang Yi Help Raise 50 Million Fund for Children at the Smile Angel Foundation Gala Dinner on May 27 in Beijing.
The star-studded event was able to raise 54.6 Million RMB (around US$ 8.64 Million) with 10 auction items.
The Smile Angel Foundation was founded by Faye Wong and her actor husband Li Yapeng in 2006 when their daughter was born with a cleft palate. Carina Lau, a long-time-friend to Wong, joined the committee and helped raised money for the organization.
A specialized children hospital was also launched on the same day to offer free surgeries for this affliction.
Na Ying has been performing and recording for over 20 years, and has many popular songs under her name. However, she hasn’t actually released a new album for nine years.
The concert, called “So What” shares the name of the new album. Na Ying explains that it is from one of her tags.
“I may say so what when either happy or sad. Actually you guys also say like this. Everybody may say it.”
The concert, although having a large investment of both financial and time, will be a simple affair. Compared to her 2009 Concert, Na Ying says there won’t be many flaring elements.
“There’s no new arrangement, no guest singers, no bold attempts, I just want to keep it simple.”
The concert is to be held in the Workers’ Gymnasium in Beijing.
