The bid committee in China hoping to bring the 2022 Winter Olympics to Beijing has roped in Chinese action star Jackie Chan to record a song that will be used to help promote the country’s 2022 Olympic campaign.
The 60-year-old star, who is one of his country’s best-known personalities, has joined in the recording of a song, “Wake up Winter,” that will be used to help promote China’s campaign, reported Los Angeles Times.
“‘Wake up Winter’ is actually a call to people around the world, an incessant eagerness for the Olympic spirit and a longing for friendship between people and countries,” songwriter Wang Jiuping told China’s state-run radio news service.
Officials have called upon numerous musicians to participate, including composer Zhao Jialin, who had an Internet hit with “Little Apple” last year. Beijing is competing against Almaty, Kazakhstan, for the 2022 Games.
