Taiwanese singer Jay Chou will work with fans to write a song for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
The 28-year-old singer said he would like to solicit help on the lyrics from the public in order to write the song. He made this appeal when he was interviewed on a TV program in Beijing on October 21.
Chou usually works with his long-time partner and composer Vincent Fang Wen Shan, but he decided this time to select lyrics from the public before putting them to music.
"I will definitely follow my previous style, with the music having a Chinese flavor, to let foreigners know the charisma of Chinese culture" Chou explained.
"It might add a little bit rock and roll elements," the pianist added, saying he prefers electronic guitar to piano as accompany to give more strength.
Two of Chou's works, Nunchakus and Dragon Fists, were played at the 2004 Athens Olympics, and the singer said he would try to enunciate the lyrics as clearly as possible this time so that it won't sound like he's humming the words.
