Pascal Mashaalani on tour around the Arab world
Lebanese singer Pascal Mashaalani has resumed performing now that the war between Lebanon and Israel has ended.
The singer will first head to Egypt, then travel to Dubai to appear as a guest on a live television program, and lastly visit Tunisia to hold a private concert during the holy month of Ramadan.
During the war, Pascal refused to leave Lebanon, despite the ongoing Israeli strikes targeting her neighborhood. The singer said that she is loyal to Lebanon, even though she holds a Canadian passport and was able to escape.
According to the London based Elaph, Pascal cancelled a number of festivals and concerts around the world, refusing to sing while her country is suffering. The singer has visited a number of refugee shelters and assisted a number of people in need.
Before the war broke out, Pascal announced that she has been involved in a secret love affair for the past three years, and decided to make her relationship public since the couple is looking toward marriage. The singer said she believes love needs to grow away from the spotlights and the media, and away from disparaging rumors. She had to keep the matter a complete secret, in order to have a real relationship, said Pascal.
