Sam Concepion Just Recorded his First International Version of "Kung Fu Fighting"

Sam Concepcion: First Filipino artist to sing for DreamWorks

Teen idol Sam Concepcion recorded his version of “Kung Fu Fighting,” which is included in the soundtrack album of the animated film “Kung Fu Panda.” To be distributed within the Asian Region, such feat makes Concepcion the first local artist to have sung for Hollywood film company, DreamWorks.

Apart from his appearance in the “Kung Fu Panda” album, his version of the movie’s theme song will be played during the end credits of the Philippine run. United International Pictures and Universal Records also produced a music video for Concepcion. Mostly shot in a Chinese temple, it features snippets from “Kung Fu Panda,” and computer-generated animation made just for the music video.

“It is a rare occasion for a Hollywood movie to have a local artist sing in the soundtrack album. This is Sam’s first international recording break, and he truly deserves it,” said Selina de Venecia, United International Pictures’ general manager.

Pop superstar Rain also recorded “Kung Fu Fighting” for DreamWorks in Korea. On the other hand, R&B artist and song producer Ceelo Green recorded the same song for the US release.

"Kung Fu Panda" is about Po the Panda, the laziest animal in all of the Valley of Peace, but accidentally turns out the chosen one when enemies threaten their way of life. DreamWorks Animation SKG presents “Kung Fu Panda,” a Paramount Pictures release featuring the voices of Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Ian McShane, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogan, Lucy Liu, David Cross, Randall Duk Kim, James Hong, Michael Clarke Duncan, and Dan Fogler.

“Kung Fu Panda” opens June 6 in the Philippines. It has been rated PG for sequences of martial arts action.
