Jackie Chan is to headline a charity concert in China later this month.

The concert – which will also feature Chinese stars such as Li Yundi, Song Zuying and Li Yuchun – will raise money for survivors of the May 12 Sichuan earthquake, which left over 6,000 people with permanent disabilities.

The concert – sponsored by the China Disabled Persons Federation and the China Foundation for Disabled Persons – will be held at the Birds Nest stadium in Beijing, and will be the first major event to be held at the venue since the Olympics.

The concert will be part of celebrations held just before the International Day of Disabled Persons on December 3, and is the fifth time China has hosted an event hosted by the country’s disabled community. Past events have raised more than 40 million yuan.

The concert will take place on November 29.
