Nancy Ajram and Assi Hilani postponed
The long awaited for performance by prominent lebanese singers Nancy Ajram and Assi Hilani, which was planned for months to take place at the beginning of this current month in Abu Dhabi, has been postponed until June 7, 2007.
The sudden change of date is due to urgent conditions in Abu Dhabi that were not specified to the public.
According to the London based Elaph, sources have revealed that the reason behind the postponement is most probably due to the sudden death of one of UAE ruling family members.
Organizers of the event, which is sponsored by LG Electronics, announced that anyone who had purchased a ticket for the event may use at the new date set or may contact them for a refund.
Before the announced delay, a press conference was held in Dubai for Nancy and Assi. Nancy talked about her future projects and especially her upcoming album that is dedicated solely for children. She revealed that a music video will be released along with the album and will be aired on most satellite music channels.
Nancy also expressed her honor at participating in the event with Assi stating that she holds great respect for him, revealing that there may be a future cooperation for a duet between them.
On his part, Assi expressed his joy at the success of his most recent music video for the song “Bab Am Yebki” (A Crying Door) stating that the song came at a time when he was going through some difficult moments making it so convincing because he was singing it from the bottom of his heart.
Assi also announced that he had given his acceptance to play a leading role in a new Egyptian film alongside Egyptian actress Ghada Abdul Rizik. In the film he will play the role of a singer.
He stated that his acting experience will add tremendously to his career and is optimistic of the outcome of the film.
