Aaron Kwok to Stream Concert to Help Jobless Dancers
He personally donated $100k and will perform with 100 hard-hit dancers.
Following the footsteps of Cantopop legend Sam Hui (許冠傑) who held a free online concert against the backdrop of Victoria Harbour skyline, Aaron Kwok (郭富城) will also be holding “Aaron Kwok Online Concert 2020” <郭富城鼓舞·動起來Online Concert 2020>, to be streamed free online on Saturday, May 9, 2020 (5pm to 6pm HKT).
Aaron hopes to raise funds through the concert to uplift dancers and professionals in the industry whose income have been affected by the recent Covid-19 pandemic, as well as to cheer Hong Kongers on.
Besides singing, some 100 dancers will join Aaron in a performance. A backup dancer when he first started out, the 54-year-old star has personally made a donation of $100,000 HKD to help dancers who had their income badly affected due to cancelled performances during the Covid-19 crisis.
Patrick Siu (蕭潮順), who is producing Aaron’s live show for free, shared more details. “Yes, two hours ago Siu Mei (梁美薇, Aaron’s manager) approached me to be involved in this, and donations will go directly toward Aaron’s personal charity fund. Aaron really wants to help the dancers who have been working with him for many years and also fellow professionals in the film industry. Right now, many things are still in the initial stage, and more details will be released later.”
