    BEIJING, Jan. 8 -- Florence Chan, the former agent of late Hong Kong superstar Leslie Cheung, is striving to put together a star-studded concert on April 1 to commemorate the fifth anniversary of Cheung's death.

    The show is likely to be held at Hong Kong Coliseum, where singer-actor Cheung once performed for 33 consecutive nights in late 1989.

    Chan says she is currently busy contacting Cheung's friends, local stars such as Jacky Cheung, Tony Leung, Karen Mok and Eason Chan, but the final line-up is yet to be confirmed.

    She has also sent out invitations via the media to those who want to perform for the special night.

    The dedicated agent, who was also one of Cheung's closest friends, is hoping to eventually expand her plan and launch a memorial concert series from April 1 to September 12, which was Cheung's birthday.

    On April 1, 2003, 46-year-old Leslie Cheung shocked the Hong Kong entertainment industry by leaping from the 24th floor of a local hotel. He left a suicide note saying he had been suffering from depression.
