The organizers of a charity concert to help female survivors of abuse yesterday released a music video featuring four Asian pop divas ahead of the show, which is to be held in Taipei later this month.

The song We are One was composed by award-winning Singaporean singer Tanya Chua (蔡健雅), and performed by Chua, A-mei (Chang Hui-mei, 張惠妹) of Taiwan, Na Ying (那英) of China and Sandy Lam (林憶蓮) of Hong Kong.

The pop stars are to perform at the Taipei Arena on April 20 in the charity concert.

“Hopefully everyone will like this song!” the organizers said on a Facebook fan page called “Project WAO (Women as One),” adding that the music video was made on “a frugal budget.”

More than 400 people “liked” the post and the music video was shared about 300 times within 40 minutes of its posting at 2pm yesterday.

Inspired by Lilith Fair, a concert tour and traveling music festival founded by Canadian musician Sarah McLachlan, the four singers would like to echo the fair’s success and raise funds to help female survivors of abuse.

All proceeds from the concert, projected at NT$10 million (US$330,860), are earmarked to go to the City People Foundation in New Taipei City to support its work of helping girls between the ages of 10 and 18 who have suffered abuse, according to the organizers.

Many other singers have expressed interest in performing at the concert as special guests, the organizers said, adding that Taiwan’s Faith Yang (楊乃文) and Jolin Tsai (蔡依林), talk show hostesses Momoko Tao (陶晶瑩) and Dee Hsu (徐熙娣, better known as Little S) have been included in the lineup.

The concert has received support from other celebrities as well.
