Princess Muna awards Omar Al Abdullat
King Abdullah II and Princess Muna Al Hussein, president of the “Ahali Wa Asdiqa Al Mu’waqeen” (The Friends and Family of Handicapped People Association) held a special ceremony at the Meridian Hotel in Amman Jordan to gather donations for the association. Famous Jordanian singer Omar Al Abdullat sang at the celebration and donated his entire wage to the association.
According to the London daily Elaph, Al- Abdullat sang a number of his songs, while the audience cheered and sang along with him. He stepped down from the stage and invited a group of handicapped children to join him.
Princess Muna Al Hussein was presented with the special Health Arkon International Award from Washington State for the role the association plays in helping handicapped children. Princess Muna then presented a second award to Al Abdullat to show the association’s gratitude towards the singer for playing a great role in helping those in need.
This is just one of many good deeds that Al Abdullat has done for his country and the Jordanian people. He played a major role in the Jordanian parliamentary elections by encouraging young adults to vote and to make a difference. Al Abdullat’s slogan during the election was “Sotak Bifrig” (Your Voice Makes a Difference).
Al Abdullat just returned from Egypt where he met composers to prepare for his upcoming album to be released at the beginning of the New Year.
