HONG KONG (SARS info website) - Asia's biggest pop stars performed Saturday at a benefit concert for families affected by SARS.

The "1:99 Concert," named after the bleach-to-water ratio health officials here have recommended for an anti-SARS cleaning solution, featured some of the region's top entertainment acts.

Performers included pop sensation Nicholas Tse and the band "Four Heavenly Kings." Also appearing were singers Sammi Cheng, Joey Yung and Eason Chan.

Ellen Cheng of the Hong Kong Performing Artistes Guild, the concert organizer, said $2.21 million had been raised by Saturday night. The proceeds will go to a fund providing education grants for children from SARS-affected families.
