All proceeds from the concert will be used to and cover the cost of pediatric cardiac surgeries for children in need.


Headed by singer and actress Ngo Thanh Van, the concert drew in several local celebrities.


Celebrity photos and paintings were auctioned at the event. Ngo Thanh Van's painting (which was signed by Angelina Jolie) signature was sold at the price of US$10,000.


Local pop icon Dam Vinh Hung shot into the limelight when his painting drew a US$50,000 bid.


The charity was launched a year ago, last month and is Van's second charity project. Her benefit raised around US$368,000 to help children suffering from heart diseases, last year.
