Fadel Shaker joins Shireen on the beach
Lebanon’s summer surprises for this year will include a special performance by Egyptian singer Shireen Ahmad and Lebanese singer Fadel Shaker on August 23, 2003. The two singers are scheduled to hold their concert live on the beach in Beirut, and their concert is expected to prove a huge success due to the fact that both have reached a point where their popularity is expanding at a fast rate.
According to the London based Elaph, the visit will mark Shireen’s first time in Lebanon, in which she is also scheduled to hold a number of concerts. After the performance, Fadel is due to fly off to Europe to hold concerts in Denmark, Germany, Belgium, France, and other countries, as well as holding a tour around the United States of America.
Shaker recently arrived in Lebanon coming from the UAE to place the final touches on his upcoming album, which is due to be released this summer. The singer held extensive working sessions with a number of composers in order to choose the songs for the album. Before the singer was in the UAE, where he held a number of performances, he was in Cairo and had recorded a few songs he had already selected. The singer is careful to only choose songs that will be up to the high standards his audience is accustomed to. The singer is also scheduled to hold concerts at a number of summer festivals around the Arab world.
Shaker has been enjoying a huge success with the release of his latest album "Ya Ghaib" (Far Away) despite the disputes he encountered regarding his latest singles. The songs "Dihkit El Dunia" (A World's Smile) and "Ma'akoul" (Could It Be True) have reached top spot in most music charts around the Arab world despite the fact that they were illegitimately released disregarding the conditions of his contract with the record company Rotana.
His popularity drove a number of devoted fans to create a website that featured news, latest events, photographs, and a personal email for the singer where people can contact him directly. The singer’s sudden rise in popularity drove a number of sponsors for festivals around the Arab world to request his appearance. -Albawaba.com
