Asian Superstar Ha Phuong Donates All Profits to Charity

Ha Phuong, a New York-based Asian superstar, is promising to donate 100 percent of her future profits from her singing, acting and producing projects to help underprivileged children. Phuong, who was born in Vietnam, hopes her generosity will inspire others to help marginalized youngsters.

Here's what's coming in 2018! Phuong produced and stars with Andrew McCarthy and Richard Chamberlain in the feature film "Finding Julia," which will be released on May 4 in New York, Houston, Los Angeles, San Jose and Orange County, California.

"Finding Julia" is inspired by Phuong's real life and her 2017 book of the same name. The book can be purchased on FindingJulia.net and Amazon. Phuong's exciting English language song from the film, "Lost in a Dream," has been released in a music video (also at FindingJulia.net).

Fans are encouraged to make a video of themselves singing "Lost in a Dream" and send it to findingjulia2017@gmail.com by March 15, 2018. Five finalists will give a live performance in New York on April 15. The singer with the best video and live performance will win $20,000!

All the profits from Phuong's DVD/CD sales, concerts and films will go to the Ha Phuong Foundation, which helps underprivileged children by paying for their housing, surgery, food, clothing and education. The foundation also provides musical instruments, vocational training and career development for blind children. Thanks to this generous foundation, these kids can creatively express themselves while learning to use state-of-the-art professional equipment and software.

Back in 2008, Phuong started the Ha Phuong Foundation with a $1 million donation in Huntington Beach, California. That donation helped build a multi-media arts center in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove. Additionally, she sponsors the Ha Phuong Young Female Filmmakers Initiative, which supports aspiring female filmmakers through the nonprofit New York Women in Film and Television.

Phuong also assists in the Vietnam Relief Effort, a non-profit organization created by her husband, Chinh Chu, and his sister. The Vietnam Relief Effort helps build schools, pay for surgeries for war veterans and disabled people, and brings Vietnamese doctors to the U.S. for training. In a nod to her generosity, Phuong was named a "top donor to UNICEF" in 2016.

In addition to her career and charity efforts, Phuong is a mom to two precious daughters, Diana Phuong Phuong Chu, (11), and Angelina Tieu Phuong Chu, (10). Inspired by her own kids and her early years in Vietnam, Phuong is determined to make the world a better place for other children.
