The biggest names in Vietnamese entertainment will headline a concert to raise funds for the upkeep of refugee camps in the Philippines. Friday's "Vietnamese Concerts for Refugees" at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre will include about 200 singers, composers and dancers. They will perform folk dances, and traditional and modern songs. The concert is in response to the decision by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to discontinue funding of detention centers throughout Southeast Asia.
