At Rotana Fadel allowed what no other singer is
The musical production company Rotana concluded its successful multi concerts that were held on Carthage Historic Stage by a concert for both singers Fadel Shaker and Amal Hijazi. The same scene as Shireen and Hussein Al Jismi was repeated, where the Roman stage was filled with fans that had to come in the early hours to guarantee seats.
The concert was launched with Amal Hijazi’s voice; however, it was hard not to notice that she was nervous when she met her fans. Soon after she overcame her fear she asked a young man to come up on stage and to start singing with her. They both sang the duet “Ainak” (Your Eyes), which she had previously sang with Moroccan singer Foduel.
According to the London daily Elaph, Amal started singing a collection of her songs and her fans went wild while holding huge posters for her that were distributed before the concert by the production company Rotana.
The second part of the concert was for Lebanese singer Fadel Shaker. Usually, before any singer gets up on stage they have a short interview with the Tunisian TV host Farah Bin Rajab. Fadel had requested not to hold any interviews with the media and Rotana, who is said to never have turned down a request by Fadel, had agreed with the management of the festival that no journalists attempt to hold any form of interview with Fadel. The management of the Festival respected his wishes, because he still showed up even after the recent loss of his mother.
While he started singing a wave of clapping and screaming began. Some fans had even fainted being overwhelmed with the singer. Fadel didn’t turn down any of his fans requests to sing the songs they asked for. He sang a song for the Legend Wardah “Akthib Aleek”, and then he followed it with a number of his old and new songs. Fadel promised his fans that there would be another meeting soon.
