China's Li Chun Bo (Charley Lee) Comes To The Aid Of Earthquake Victims
Published June 19, 2008

The famous Chinese pop star has created a fund to help the victims of the devastating earthquake that hit China's Sichuan province in May.

Li Chun Bo (Charley Lee) has recorded a new album called Remember The Earth, which will be available in the U.S. and Europe later this year. The album was recently released in China under the name When I Have Money Someday, with the title track referring to what Lee sees as an obsessive materialism that's currently running rampant in his native country. However, after the terrible earthquakes that created countless disasters there in May, Lee decided to release the song "Remember The Earth" as a single, with all proceeds going to a special earthquake fund.

Charley Lee is a well-known artist in China, most famous for his '90s hits "The Letter Home" and "Little Fang." His songs characteristically reflect the everyday lives of Chinese citizens. After more than a decade as a pop icon, Lee decided that he wanted to expand his fanbase and cater to a more Western audience. Last year, the president of Ashe Records and Grammy-nominated world music record producer Rachel Faro went to Nashville, Tennesee to produce Lee's latest album (along with Berlin-based Senator Entertainment). Remember The Earth was mixed and recorded by Richard Adler, the same man who has worked with such icons as Dolly Parton, Neil Young, Alison Krauss, and Ricky Scaggs.
