LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Rush Hour" star Jackie Chan is spearheading a charity concert to benefit Japan's earthquake and tsunami victims.

The event, dubbed the "Love Without Borders 3/11 Candelight Gala," takes place April 1 at Hong Kong's Victoria Park and participants include singers such as Alan Tam, Shirley Kwan and Chinese-American rapper Jin.

The group has recorded the song "Succumb Not to Sorrow" which is based on a Japanese poem and serves as the theme for the concert.
