Thanks to the rapid and transient characteristics of the internet, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that has gotten celebrities like Bill Gates, James Franco, Oprah, and Mark Zuckerberg to pour a bucket of ice water on themselves, spreading to Chinese social media and Chinese stars. The CEO of “Chinese Apple” Xiaomi, Nicholas Tse, Kwai Lun-mei, Jay Chou, Andy Lau, and other celebrities, even state media Xinhua, have taken up the challenge to help raise funds and awareness for ALS. Some use it as a PR opportunity, some do the challenge without being challenged for the sake of popularity, and some sincerely hope to raise awareness. We have selected a few for you to watch below.
Oooo Com-ic-Con, the trailers, the footage, the images, The HYPE is real. I get to the point where I’m selling my #art and doing commissions there. Until then I got to stay focused …I have a movie called #Blackhat on in the background right now. #China is a big place for money for movies. Some movies that flopped here in the states were saved because of their overseas market. Plus China has a cap on how many overseas movies they take in. So having some Chinese actors and filming some Chinese locations helps. …that being said the movie came across a bit formulaic. I wasn’t a big fan of certain camera shots, but it is still a enjoyable movie, and worth seeing, if not owning. I look forward to more collaborations with East and West in movies. Well back to the #ghost
Found this pic on Leehom’s facebook page. LEEHOM AND JEREMY LIN IN ONE PICTURE?! HOW PRECIOUS!!!!! #wangleehom #leehom #jeremylin #jlin #basketball #music #taiwan #taipei #happiness #facebook #celebs #athlete (Taken with Instagram)
I’m used to seeing him perform in big stadiums, so he looks to me a little too big simply playing a gig in this setting. But it’s nice seeing him do nothing but music for once. No pyrotechnics, no fancy stage lights, no commercials, no movies.
With so many other projects he’s working on these days, I just need a bit of reminding of what he REALLY is good at.
What I received from #WangLeeHom’s event on Monday. #Nikon #USBdrive (#Pendrive) which I had been thinking to get for long time! Lucky 😊! Below is the Nikon folder from China as he endorses Nikon in China 😉 (Taken with instagram)
It truly is an honor that to be a part of team Wang Leehom. He is by far in my humble opinion the most talented artist in Asia for many reasons. His concert tour “Music Man” is one of the most successful tours in China’s history. What is most important is that he lives for a purpose bigger than himself. His mission is to bring Chinese pop culture to the world. Get ready because not only has he over taken China but very soon Madison Square Garden NYC will be next. #wangleehom #eastwest
