About 10,000 fans crowded the Taipei Arena on Sunday to attend a concert by four pop divas in support of abused women and girls.

Taiwan’s Chang Hui-mei, (A-mei, 張惠妹), Na Ying (那英) from China, Tanya Chua (蔡健雅) of Singapore and Sandy Lam (林憶蓮) of Hong Kong performed at the Project WAO (Women as One) concert.

The four women took turns taking to the stage and sang duets with each other and with special guests — Taiwanese singers Faith Yang (楊乃文) and Jolin Tsai (蔡依林).

Chua opened the concert with a brisk performance of her song Angel vs Devil (天使與魔鬼).

Before singing her hit The Great Artist (大藝術家), Tsai said the song is for everyone who believes in love.

“Please believe in the great and positive power inside you and tell yourselves that you are unique. No one can treat you as an accessory,” Tsai said.

All proceeds from the concert, which are estimated to reach NT$10 million, will go to the New Taipei-based City People Foundation to support its program for abused females aged 10 to 18, according to concert organizers.
