Elissa between Dubai and Kuwait
Prominent Lebanese singer Elissa is in Dubai to hold a special performance for the launch of the new line of products by the popular international sunglasses Vogue. The singer has been named the new face of Vogue for the Middle East, and a press conference will be held later on this week at the Emirates Towers Hotel.
The big event is in cooperation with the company Luxottica, which had previously signed with Elissa to be its star for Ray Ban sunglasses. At the event, a photography show that was shot in Milan Italy, will be shown for the singer.
According to the London based Elaph, after the event, Elissa will head off to Kuwait, where she will be participating in the annual music festival 'Hello February', verifying her particpation after numerous rumors that stated otherwise.
Elissa will be holding her concert at the festival on March 7, alongside prominent UAE singer Ahlam, Lebanese singer Fadel Shaker, and young Kuwaiti singer Bashar Al Shati, who was a recent contestant on the popular program Star Academy.
Elissa revealed that presently she does not have time for love or any type of intimate relationship. The singer said that as the sole provider for her family, after the death of her father, she has too much responsibility on her hands to make a real commitment.
Although, she still dreams of getting married and having her own family in the future, said Elissa, adding that she hopes to have a daughter.
On a different note, Elissa is preparing to film the music video for the song “Lao Ta’rafouh” (If You Knew Him) for a second time. The singer previously filmed a clip for the song under the direction of Salim Turk, but was unsatisfied with the outcome.
Elissa requested that production company ‘Rotana’ not air the video for the song stating that it was not up to her standards.
