Jackie Chan has crossed over the bridge to display his vocal skill for Olympic 2008. The 'Rush Hour' actor recorded the official song to Beijing Summer Olympics titled 'We Are Ready'.

On his blog, Jackie revealed that he spent three hours in a Beijing, China studio to get the song done. It was composed by Silver Bear Award recipient Peter Kam who said that an English version may be recorded.

Among the lyrics in the song are: "Waiting year after year/ We can see into the future/ Together with hard work and sweat, we've created the five different (Olympic) colors".

To many, Jackie's daredevil stunt may be more acknowledged than his discography. The Hong Kong-born actor has in fact released more than 10 albums since 1984, with the latest being 'With All One's Heart' (2002).

The Beijing Olympics will officially start August 8 and run through August 24.
