Christmas and New Year has been a busy time for action star Jackie Chan.
Filming for Chan’s latest movie, The Spy Next Door, has wrapped up in the US, and the star has jetted back to China, where his itinerary has been busy with charity work.
The 54-year-old has – in the last two weeks – performed in the “Music/Love 2008” concert and attended a ceremony where he was named Honorary Chairman for a special program called Volunteers Bring Love to China. He also filmed a cameo for a children’s movie titled Finding Jackie Chan, and been named Vice Chairman of the China Film Association.
But the biggest news for the actor/singer was the honor of being awarded the Best Charity Song Award at the 2008 China Mobile Wireless Music Awards. Chan recorded “Love Through Life and Death” to raise funds and awareness for victims of the May 12 earthquake in Southwest China’s Sichuan Province.
“This award is dedicated to those volunteers working in the forefront of the earthquake rescue and relief works, and also those who contributed a lot and still remain unknown,” he said.
