Rain was offered by officials of the 2008 Beijing Olympics to sing its theme song.
The popular Asian singer received the proposal and though there is a great likelihood that he will accept the offer, a formal contract still has not been made.
In 2006, Rain was offered to perform during the opening of the 15th Asian Games in Doha but due to his concert tour, he had to let go of the offer. Andy Lau filled in. It was, Rain said, his “most regrettable moment in 2006.”
