Will.i.am, John Legend perform with Chinese pop stars
Los Angeles: Hip hoppers Will.i.am and singer John Legend shared the stage with Chinese pop stars at a charity concert to support study abroad programs for underprivileged American students.
The event was organised on December 17 by American Promoting Study Abroad and Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation, Ace Showbiz reported.
Will.i.am did the opening act, followed by China`s Sa Dingding and her ethnic pop. Legend played five songs in one set and made a duet with US raised singer Shunzi.
Coco Lee, who grew up in San Francisco, later joined Shunzi and acted as Fergie in Black Eyed Peas when she joined will.i.am and apl.de.ap.
The concert was backed up by US State Department. "Having come from the Los Angeles area, I know first-hand how important programs like 100,000 Strong can be. The opportunity to study abroad in China would be a dream realized for so many young people who may not otherwise have had the chance to see what else the world has to offer," Will.i.am said.
