Aaron Kwok's online concert draws over 3m viewers

KUALA LUMPUR (May 11): Hong Kong singer/actor superstar Aaron Kwok held an online online charity concert held last Saturday Cheer Up And Dance and it drew in more than 2.6 million viewers on Facebook and over 1.1 million viewers on YouTube, reported the Straits Times (ST).

It was also reported that the event raised more than HK$1 million (about RM560,000) for those impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Kwok also “urged the public to donate to dancers and other performing arts professionals whose incomes have been affected by the pandemic”.

Also making an appearance at the concert were Kwok’s wife Moka Fang and one of his daughters Chantelle.

ST reported that it is “one of the rare times Kwok has allowed his elder daughter Chantelle to be photographed in public”.

"I was blessed to have these 100 comrades beside me, in an open space with no glamorous costumes, no stage lifts, no lights or fireworks, no make-up rooms, no air-conditioning, just sweating it out and dancing happily," Kwok said in a social media post after the concert.

Kwok was accompanied by about 100 dancers wearing masks on the rooftop of a shopping complex Harbour City in Hong Kong for the concert, according to the ST report.
