Hong Kong show business next week will perform a Yushu disaster relief show at the Hong Kong Coliseum to raise fund for the Qinghai earthquake victims. Last night the show business representatives as well as each record company, radio, television artist representatives gathered at the Broadcast Road Radio Hong Kong to record the theme song HAND TO HEART (SAU NIN SUM). Attendees included Alan Tam Wing Lun, Eric Tsang Chi Wai, Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, Hacken Lee Hak Kun, Kay Tse On Kay, Myolie Wu Hung Yi, Kelly Chen Wai Lam, Dicky Cheung Wai Kin, Andy Hui Chi On, Leo Ku Kui Ke, HotCha, Stephanie Cheng Yung, Fama, Paul Chun Pui and Paw Hee Ching. Sammi Cheng Sau Man who will head to Xining in Saturday did not attend.
Last night the recording took place between 9 and 10:30. The recording artists first gathered for a group photo, then recorded the group chorus and individual team record as well as the music video. The event director Gordon Chan Ka Seung revealed that due to Yushu's small traffic capacity with its broken roads and high mountain, helicopters were required to transport material. They had no way to ensure artist safety so they no longer wanted Sammi to take the risk. Instead she will be sent to Xining because all the victims rescued were sent to Xining. The trip will include a team of 8, 8 of whom will be artists Cheng Sau Man, Nick Cheung Ka Fai and Max Mok Siu Chung. Mok Siu Chung today will meet with photographer and light technician in the Mainland to begin the start. Sammi and director Lawrence Ah Mon (Lau Kwok Cheung) will leave Saturday and return to Hong Kong Sunday. The footage will air at the event.
Kelly expressed that she made a donation under the Lau family name to Chi Tan. She also wanted to visit the disaster area. She remembered that six or seven years ago she visited the Jainca, where the children moved her so much that once returned to Hong Kong she began her fund. Joey Yung Cho Yi said that she was not in good health so no one asked her to make the trip. Lately she even lost her voice, for which she will go for the Mainland for acupuncture treatment. Big Four did not know about Sammi's visit. William So Wing Hong expressed that as a friend she would support her but felt that personal safety was the most important. She also praised her as the female singer who he admired the most in the Chinese world. Was On Jai worried about Sammi? He only said, "Their love is greater than our concern."
The event after expenses will donate to five international charity organizations; UNICEF, Salvation Army, Hong Kong Red Cross, Hong Kong World Vision and Caring for Children Foundation.
