Arab superstar Jordanian singer Diana Karazon expressed her deepest feelings of sympathy for Palestinian children who are struggling for their own being and land, and trying to stand strong against the Israeli war machine. Karazon also wished that she could find the right words to describe their suffering and to expose it to the whole world in a new song.
According to the UAE based daily, Al Bayan, with regards to the conditions that motivated her to sing for Palestinian children Diana stressed that Arab children in general and Palestinian children in particular are facing very harsh conditions. To her the Palestinian child grows up thinking of ways to revenge from the people who killed his family and ruined his house. Her goal is to sing a song that clarifies the Palestinian child's point of view who is living these inhumane circumstances.
Karazone took part in the contest “World Idol” in London marking the first time such an event is held and where many superstar winners from around the world competed to win for the grand title. Diana was chosen among 11 participants from the Arab world to represent the entire Middle East region.
Norwegian participant Kurt Nelson won the title of World Idol, while American contestant Kelly Clarkson won second place. Diana was the only participant who had sung in Arabic, while the rest all sung in English. One of the judges noted to Diana that he questioned why she took part in the contest and her singing in Arabic was the main reason behind her loosing especially since no one understands what she is saying and in turn she did not gain any points.
Diana on her part stressed that she purposely sung in Arabic to and that her purpose was not to win but to proudly represent 22 different Arabic countries. Diana added that it's in her power to sing in any language she wants but she chose Arabic as means of showing her pride for all Arabs and the language and by doing this she is showing a strong sense of being. Diana was be the only contestant in the contest to sing one of her own person son “Insani Ma Bansak” (Forget Me I Won’t Forget You).
Diana, also known as Arab superstar, also plans to shoot her first music video clip for the (Khaligi) Gulf song from her first album in Dubai. The clip will be for the song “El Shar Barra Wi Bi’eed” (Evil is out and Far), which is composed by the famous Kuwaiti composer Abdullah Go’oud and directed by Kuwaiti director Adel Khader.
Diana revealed that the new video clip will be very simple and will concentrate on showing her face and new look in a very simple and beautiful way. Diana’s first video clip comes after she released her first promotional video clip “Iinsani ma Bansak” (Forget me I’ll Never forger You), which showed her in various stages in the Superstar program, which launched her career in singing. –Albawaba.com
