Will Faye Resurface to Raise Funds for Children?

For the past few days, the Chinese press has, again, returned to speculating about Faye Wong’s (王菲) return, this time claiming that the program Li Yapeng (李亚鹏) is proposing for the longterm care of children impacted by the earthquake will cost a lot of money and, therefore, Faye may perform and record CDs to help raise funds. LYP is calling for volunteers to commit to providing support for the children over the next ten years or more, to assist them until they graduate from school and find good jobs. He says his plan (汶川新家庭计划, Wenchuan new family planning) will be a moral commitment rather than a legal contract. The more I see of LYP, at least in the last couple of years, the more I admire him. He’s a natural leader, and his heart and mind are in the right place. There’s also no denying the influence that Faye is having on him. She has always been a kind, caring, and generous person when it comes to caring for those in need. (Source: entertainment.northeast.cn, 3 June 2008)
