He added that till now, he has the approval of a large number of Arab singers to participate in “the musical epic”, and all of them have denoted their salaries to the Palestinian people. Among the participants are, Hani Shaker, Angham, Ehab Tawfiq and Nadia Mustafa (from Egypt), Syrian singer Assala Nassri and Samira Saaid from Morocco.
