BEIJING, Jan. 5 (Xinhua) -- American billionaire investor Warren Buffett will show his singing talents to viewers of the gala that will be broadcast online to celebrate Chinese New Year, organizers said Thursday.

Buffett, 81, has recorded a video specially for the gala in which he sings and plays guitar, Wang Pingjiu, a production executive for the broadcast, said at a press conference.

"We all know that Buffett is good at investment, but few knew he also did well in singing," said Wang.

Wang did not disclose the name of the song.

Performances by international stars, such as pianist Robert Wells and Kung Fu actor Jackie Chan, will also be seen.

The Spring Festival Web Gala, organized by China Network Television (CNTV), includes online elements such as microblogs and micromovies. Grass-roots performers who became well-known through the Internet have been invited to attend, said Wang.

The gala will be available on during the Spring Festival, which falls on Jan. 23, and a condensed version will be on shown on the channels of China Central Television.
