Nicole Saba supports Lebanese children
Lebanese singer Nicole Saba has visited the headquarters of the main donation association that was organized to collect money to help Lebanese people, who were severely affected by the recent war with Israel.
Nicole contributed by buying very large quantities of milk and formula for children. The singer supervised through the process of sending the aid and money to Lebanon with the help of the Lebanese embassy in Cairo.
Nicole called on everyone in the entertainment world to contribute and help as much as possible by making contributions to Lebanon.
When the war broke out, Nicole denied accusations by the media that she and a number of Lebanese singers did not cancel prescheduled concerts out of disregard for their country while at war with Israel.
“There is not one Lebanese person, whether an artist or ordinary citizen, that is not deeply affected by the agony our country is going through,” said Nicole.
According to the London based Elaph, Nicole said that she was compelled to hold a number of performances despite the war, since organizing committees of concerts decided to proceed.
At first she tried to cancel her performances, but was advised it would be positive to proceed since many people would attend to show their support to Lebanon and its people, said Nicole.
The singer gave a performance in Alexandria, Egypt and held two concerts at the International Song Festival. Event coordinator, Egyptian actor Samir Sabri chose Nicole to participate in the Festival.
Nicole performed with prominent Saudi singer Mohammad Abdo for the first time in her career at the opening of the festival, although her second performance alongside Lebanese singer Wael Jassar was cancelled due to his inability to leave Lebanon.
The singer had t-shirts made for concert goers donning Lebanon’s flag to show support for her country.
Nicole confirmed that she did not flee Lebanon, and the thousands of people who left the country have gone to a safer place until conditions are stable.
