TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Several of Taiwan’s most popular stars will join an Asian-American livestreamed event to promote the fight against the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and xenophobia, reports said Monday (May 18).
The aim of the event is to “unite Asian artists and leaders from around the world for the fight against COVID-19 and the xenophobia affecting Asian communities,” the organizers said.
Asian Americans have complained of increasing racism as they are blamed for the spread of the virus from China.
Taiwan-based talent scheduled to appear on the show includes singer Julia Wu (吳卓源), Golden Melody Award-winning rapper ØZI, and actor-singer Vanness Wu (吳建豪).
Meanwhile, the list of special guests features former U.S. presidential contender Andrew Yang, Taiwanese-American basketball star Jeremy Lin (林書豪), and Korean-American “Fast and Furious” actor Sung Kang.
