Ragheb Alama presented with an Honorary PHD
The Lebanon International University LIU has granted prominent Lebanese singer Ragheb Alama with an Honorary PHD, marking the first time such a step is taken by the university.

The PHD was presented to Ragheb by the former Lebanese Minister of Culture Abd Al Raheem Murad.
According to the London based Elaph, Ragheb considered such a step by the university as one of the highlights of his life and he is much honored to be chosen and recognized. He also considered the degree as more important than any musical award he had every received and is very grateful for everyone who made it happen.
