Elissa can’t sing while Lebanon suffers
Lebanese superstar Elissa will host the final episode of the music talent show “Star Academy.”
The talent show, aired on LBC, has been limited to inviting guests from inside Lebanon due to the crisis.
According to the London daily Elaph, Elissa will perform “Ayami Beek” (My days with You) from her latest album, which has been a great hit among young Arab listeners.
The “Star Academy” celebration will be Elissa’s first performance since the crises in Lebanon erupted. She stopped hosting concerts due to the situation in her beloved country.
Elissa declined to host a live concert in Cairo on May 16, instead the Lebanese singer Miriam made an appearance. Elissa said that she could not leave her family and loved ones behind in Lebanon to go and sing.
“I can’t go to a celebration when there is bloodshed among brothers of my country,” said Elissa.
She hopes that Lebanon will be safe and stable once again so that she will be able to go anywhere to sing.
