BEIJING - Investment guru Warren Buffett is expected to give Spring Festival wishes and display his musical talent during an online gala.

China Network Television - which will host an online Spring Festival Gala to be broadcast globally during the traditional Chinese holiday in two weeks - said Buffett, who has many fans in China, is one of the international guests the channel invited.

"Each year we try to invite Chinese and international celebrities to perform and send greetings," said Luo Yan from Long Legacy International Communications, a company jointly holding the event with China Network Television. "Buffett is one of them."

The news has spread quickly via micro blogs over the past days. Some netizens said the 81-year-old's appearance adds weight to the online show, especially as China's stock market has suffered a sharp fall the past year.

Luo said that the renowned investor provided a short video clip of his previous music performance in the US. He has also specially filmed a short video of Chinese New Year greetings for the online show.

One of Buffett's two sons will perform in the video.
