Jackie Chan lends voice to Beijing's Olympic bid

Internationally acclaimed movie star Jackie Chan has joined in the recording of a song 'Wake up Winter' that will be used to promote Beijing's bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics.

The first people to officially hear the song will be the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Evaluation Commission during their March 24-28 visit to Beijing, reports Xinhua.

"Wake up Winter is actually a call to people around the world with an incessant eagerness for the Olympic spirit and a longing for friendship between people and countries," said songwriter Wang Pingjiu.

A large number of well-known musicians both from across the globe have been involved in the making of the song.

It's not Chan's first foray into Olympic singing. The action star performed 'We Are Ready', recorded and released a year before the beginning of the 2008 Summer Olympics here. He also sang at the Closing Ceremony of those Games.

Jackie Chan's son Jaycee released from jail

Jackie Chan's son Jaycee released from jail

Jaycee Chan, the son of actor Jackie Chan, was released from jail in China on Friday after serving a six-month sentence on drugs charges, state media said.

The official Xinhua news agency said he was let out in the early hours of the morning having completed his sentence, taking into account time already served since he was put in detention in August.

The younger Chan was formally charged in December with "the crime of sheltering others to take drugs" after testing positive for marijuana, with police saying they found 100 grams of the drug at his home. He faced a maximum prison sentence of three years.

He is expected to hold a news conference in Beijing on Saturday.
