Prominent Egyptian pop-star Amr Diab and Lebanese singer Haifa Wahbi are scheduled to hold a joint concert in Egypt at the end of February at the Marriott hotel in Cairo. It has been revealed that the proceeds of the event will go directly to the fight against illiteracy project under the patronage of Egypt’s First Lady Suzan Mubarak and the Rotary Club.
It was added that on the second day a huge concert by prominent Lebanese diva Majida Al Roumi will take place for the same cause. The singers have stressed that illiteracy is a very important issue around the world and everyone should put in the efforts to fight it.
On a different note, Diab has very recently held a successful concert at the Carling Apollo in Hammersmith, London. Fans had waited for the singer outside for hours before the concert started wanting to show how anxious they were to hear him perform. The concert was sponsored by AG Productions, which specializes in organizing concerts and the promotion of the brightest singers from the Arab world around Europe. Amr presented some of his most popular songs to an audience that kept up with him for over two hours.
