April 19-21, 2017
I arrived in Macau very late on Wednesday night. As soon as I got off the plane, I went straight to the venue for a quick rehearsal and prepared for the event the next day. On the evening of April 20, I attended the 21st Channel [V] Chinese Music Awards Ceremony and was honoured with two music awards: one for Best Movie Theme Song: “Kung Fu Yoga” 《功夫瑜伽》; one for Worldwide Asian Movie Theme Song Special Contribution Award. I first started singing movie theme songs in 1980 when I filmed “The Young Master”. Even though I don’t consider myself a singer, I still like to sing. Usually when I sing theme songs for my movies, the audience listens to the music but they mainly concentrate on the action in the screen. That way, they don’t take much notice of whether the singing is good or not! Hah Hah! I’ve been singing theme songs for nearly 40 years and it’s become a habit. Apart from movie theme songs, I’ve also had the opportunity to sing many other good songs. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the music composers and producers who have worked with me over the many years. Thank you for letting me sing your work. Being honoured with these awards today has given me a great confidence boost towards music. If you all like my music, I might consider releasing an album so I can sing more songs for you all to enjoy!

After the awards ceremony, I had to rush to the airport and fly to Shanghai for another meaningful event.

April 21-22, 2017
Today I arrived in Shanghai to attend the 2017 National Geographic Earth Day Run Event. The motto for this event was “You are my Green Heroes”. I’ve taken part in environmental protection and conservation work for many years already, and I’m very happy to have the opportunity today to make an appeal for even more people to participate. I also have another piece of good news I’d like to share with everyone, that is the production of my “Jackie Chan Green Hero” series project has officially begun. We hope to release one part of the series each year over the next 3 years, and hopefully you’ll be able to see it on the Asian National Geographic Channel! The first part of the series will talk about the collaboration between me and Arthur Huang Qian Zhi, an engineer from the National Geographic Society of Emerging Explorers, and his Miniwiz team where we invented a portable trash collection system called “TRASHPRESSO”, and how the system helps us manage the problem of unwanted trash and recycling. We’ll start filming this part of the series in Summer, and will be broadcast next year in April. Keep your eyes posted!

 

 

April 22-23, 2017
After attending the National Geographic Earth Day Run Event, I rushed back to Beijing to attend the opening show of my self-titled musical, “I am Jackie Chan”. Once again, I was moved to tears in public. I came to the show with an open mind and initially wanted to observe the musical with the director, and together discuss what areas could be improved or if anything wasn’t right. But when actor who played the part of my mom came on stage, tears started rolling down my face uncontrollably. The emotion inside me remained till the end of the show. When the show ended, I went up on stage and saw the actress who portrayed my mother. She was very young and used make-up to look old, but for some strange reason, I saw hints of my mom in her performance.

I started thinking back to the time when I was most glamorous and had lots of money, which was also a time where I wasn’t very thoughtful of others, I regret not spending more time with her when I could. I know that she didn’t want to spend the money I gave her, and instead saved it up for me without me knowing. She continued to work by helping others wash and iron clothes, and cleaning their house. Thinking back to those times, I wasn’t a good son and I know I was disrespectful. I only knew how to work, work, work. Without me knowing, I actually missed some of the most valuable things in life.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the director Zhou Wen Jun and his team for persisting with me with this project over the years, even though they knew the market for live musicals wasn’t the best. Over the next coming days, the team with gather feedback from the audience and make more improvements for the show. Hopefully, the musical with have the chance to be shown overseas so that new artists will have the opportunity to perform on stage. I’d like to take this opportunity to say a big big “thank you” to the cast and crew on and off the stage. You’ve given me the opportunity to take a step back and reminiscence on my past, and allowed me to further understand the things we should cherish the most in life. Thank you so much!

I want to thank my good friends and brothers: Albert Yeung, Eric Tsang, Derek Yee, and John Shum for holding such an amazing party for me last night. It was an evening I’ll never forget and will deeply treasure because I had the opportunity to see so many friends that I haven’t seen in such a long time. Maybe I was a little too happy and had a few more drinks than usual, because my staff told me that I kept repeating myself. One of the things I kept saying was, “I don’t have many decades left with my friends, and it’s certainly hard to be friends for so long”. I’ve known these people for many years; some 20, 30, 40 years, and I don’t know if I’ll be able to see them again next time, that’s why I value and cherish every opportunity to gather with so many long-time friends. I hope from now on, no matter for what reason, we still have the chance to gather each year like a reunion.  I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came to the party (and also those who couldn’t make it), thank you to all the people who once helped me and taught me things. When I was still a nobody, there were many people who helped the unknown “Jackie Chan”. Now, I am Jackie Chan, I hope I can be the person to help even more future generations of unknown “Jackie Chan’s”. A big heartfelt THANK YOU to you all!!!

 

 

感謝楊受成、曾志偉、爾冬升、岑建勳幾位兄弟堅持要做昨晚的活動,讓我有機會見到許多很久沒見的老朋友,因為太開心,多喝了幾杯,一直在說重復的話,其中一句就是,我們都是幾十年的朋友,這種朋友以後很難再有了,所以我很珍惜這樣見到大家的機會,希望今後每一年,不管是以什麼理由,我們都可以像這樣相聚一次。感謝所有昨晚到場和沒到場的同行,感謝所有幫助和提攜過我的人,當我還是陳港生的時候,有很多個Jackie Chan幫過我,現在我已經是Jackie Chan了,我希望可以幫助更多的陳港生,謝謝大家!

01. March 2017 · Comments Off on Two Surprises This Year… · Categories: Uncategorized

 

The past couple of days, I’ve been busy having meetings in LA (Los Angeles). When my staff showed me this news about my book, I was so surprised and very touched.

Actually, this year I’ve been surprised two times so far. My first surprise came from my JC Stunt Team on a TV program where in the end, we all cried like little kids. It was definitely a moment I’ll never forget. My other surprise came from seeing the revised version of my autobiography. I’d like to take this opportunity to say a heartfelt thank you to Momo (the author of my book) and the publishers for your thoughtfulness. Since the release of this publication, my book has been translated into many different languages and appeared in many bookstores all over the world. To me, I consider this a blessing, and also like a kind of honor.

 

I’d like to say a big ‘thank you’ to all my fans and readers from around the world. I’m very happy that you enjoy reading my story. Even though receiving the Honorary Oscar is now the past, my movies and my life still continues. On behalf of all the onscreen and offscreen crew from the productions of Skiptrace, Railroad Tigers, and Kung Fu Yoga, I’d like to say ‘thanks’ to every single audience for your support and watching it in theaters. Don’t worry, the next movie is coming very soon. I promise I’ll continue to do my best. So to be fair, let me bring the next surprise to you!


正在洛杉磯開會,看到這個消息,很驚喜也很感動。今年收穫了兩個驚喜,一個是成家班給的,最後一群大男人哭得像小孩一樣,那一幕我會永遠記得。另一個就是這本修訂版,謝謝墨墨和出版社這麼用心。這本書自從出版以來,已經翻譯成了很多種語言,出現在了很多國家的書店,對我來說是種幸福,也是種榮耀。感謝全世界的影迷和讀者,很開心你們喜歡看這些故事。奧斯卡落幕,電影和人生還在繼續,在此代表《絕地逃亡》《鐵道飛虎》《功夫瑜伽》所有台前幕後的夥伴,感謝所有買票的觀眾,請大家放心,下一部電影已經在路上,我會繼續努力,下一個驚喜,由我來帶給你們!

I’ve received so many letters, donations and gifts from fans while on the roadshow for Railroad tigers in China. I’d like to take this opportunity to say a huge heartfelt “thank you” for all your support! Don’t worry, I’ve read all your letters and counted all the donations. As usual, I’ll match every dollar you donate with another dollar, and the grand total will be updated very soon. Thank you for your generosity.

Stepping into the New Year, I’ll promise to take good care of myself. I also hope that everyone has a wonderful 2017, may each day be better than the previous, and I hope you all are safe and happy.
