The biggest stars of Asia perform for SARS

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.
Severe acute respiratory syndrome has killed 262 and sickened over 1,700 in Hong Kong.

The World Health Organization lifted a recommendation against travel to the territory Friday and no new cases were reported Saturday.
