Fadel Shaker a poet at heart
Lebanese singer Fadel Shaker is placing the final touches on his upcoming album "Saharni Al Shouq" (Love kept me up), which is scheduled for release during the end of January. The main song of the album "Saharni Al Shouq" is already being aired on different Lebanese radio stations.
Fadel has revealed that he has written the words of the song himself, in a first time attempt as a poet. The singer is scheduled to hold a number of concerts in different festivals around the Arab world, starting at the Doha Music Festival.
The album, which will be produced by Rotana, features thirteen songs varying between the Lebanese, Egyptian, and Khaliji (Gulf) accents. Shaker has worked with some of the most prominent composers and poets to ensure that the album is of the highest standards. Shaker is currently in the process of filming a new song in the form of a music video, which reflects the agony Palestinian people undergo under the occupation of Israel.
Fadel stressed that the new video will portray the everyday life of Palestinian people stressing their strength to survive and will to stand up for what is rightfully theirs. Director Saeed Al Marqouk will direct the clip, which will introduce Fadel in a new image and will also mark a turning point in his career.
