Music video released ahead of concert for female abuse victims



TAIPEI–The organizers of a charity concert for female victims of abuse released a music video ahead of the show, which will be held in Taipei later this month, featuring four Asian pop divas.

The song, titled “We are One,” was composed by award-winning Singaporean singer Tanya Chua and lyricist Xiao Han, and performed by Chua, A-mei of Taiwan, Na Ying of China and Sandy Lam of Hong Kong.

The four Asian pop stars will perform at Taipei Arena on April 20 at the charity concert in support of female victims of abuse.

“Hopefully everyone would 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.”

Over 400 people “liked” the post and the music video was shared about 300 times within 40 minutes of its posting at 2 p.m.

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

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