Fadel Shaker sings for the late Rafiq Al Hariri
Lebanese singer Fadel Shaker has recorded a new patriotic as a special dedication to the late PM Rafiq Al Hariri, who was assassinated last month. Fadel wanted to show his love to his country and the late PM through the song “Wain Eli Amar” (Where is he who built) that is written by both poets Ahmad and Mohammad Madi.
According to the London based Elaph, Fadel will present the song right before heading to the US to the Lebanese satellite channel Future, which is owned by Al Hariri. Lebanese singers Nawal El Zoughbi and Fadel Shaker are scheduled to head to the United States of America to hold a tour that will last for over a month around different states. The tour will take the two artists to Las Vegas, Florida, Texas, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, and New Jersey. The tour is expected to find significant success due to the fact that the two singers enjoy a lot of popularity among Arabs living in the United States.
The problem between prominent Lebanese singer and song writer Fadi Suleiman over who wrote Fadel’s latest hit “Saharni El Shouq” has worsened with regards to who really owns the right to the song. Many attempts to set a meeting between the two men to try and resolve the matter peacefully have failed with each refusing to give the rights to the other.
Fadel denied allegations by Fadi that he had stole the song and put it in his name, stressing that such actions are against everything he stands for. Fadel added that he is constantly offered thousands of songs by different songwriters and only chooses ones that hold significant value adding to his career.
