(BEIJING, Sept. 4) -- "We Are Ready!"
So says world famous movie star Jackie Chan as the actor is now in Beijing recording "We Are Ready!" -- the theme song of the one-year countdown to the Games of the XXIX Olympiad.
Compared with many performers of this song during the Olympic countdown, Chan will "fly solo" during the celebration of the one-year countdown to the Beijing Paralympic Games Thursday at the downtown China Millennium Monument.
Chan said, "Speaking loud of this sentence (We Are Ready) on behalf of the Chinese people holds many great meanings. Being part of it (the Games) in and of itself is a great pleasure and honor.
"For the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, I am fully prepared. I am ready to serve as long as I am called up."
Chan has long been in the service of the 2008 Olympic Games, as he was one of the image ambassadors for the Olympic bid and a strong promoter of Olympic volunteerism.
Chan's version of "We Are Ready" will be available for download via the wireless music billboard of China Mobile.
