Sarah Brigtman will sing in joint with a Chinese singer at the grand opening ceremony of 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

Sarah Brightman is confirmed as sole international performer who will open 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. She will perform at the ceremony on August 8 with a Chinese singer Liu Huan.

The grand opening will subsequently be aired live on NBC's The Today Show. Unfortunately, the title and content of the theme song that the two singers will sing, still remain a mystery.

This performance will be her second performance in the Olympic Games because in 1992 she had performed "Amigos Para Siempre" at the closing ceremony of Barcelona Olympic Games. At the time, she performed the theme song with Spanish tenor Jose Carreras.

Meanwhile, this year the ceremony will be closed by Leona Lewis on August 24. Another England superstar that will also play a part on the closing ceremony is soccer player David Beckham. Their apperances will represent what London will be like. "They epitomize what London 2012 is about," a source explained. "Leona is a young global star from London who has risen from nothing. Becks has glamor and a profile around the world. He was also a key figure in the bid to win the Games for London."
