Lebanese singer Pascal Mashaalani has accepted an offer for one million US dollars to be the star of a television commercial for an international watch company. The commercial is to be shot in a European country in the very near future.
According to the London based weekly, Laha, this is not the first time the singers takes part in a television commercial. The first commercial Pascal made was for the shampoo Head and Shoulders. Recently, Mashaalani headed off to Morocco where she held two concerts. The singer also held a press conference in Morocco to talk about her upcoming release and future plans.
Pascal announced that upon her return she will begin shooting a new music video clip for the song “Mish Arfeh Ansak” (I Cannot Forget You) in Lebanon. The song is from her latest album, which has so far proven to be a great success.
Mashaalani has recently held two concerts at the Safeer Palace Hotel in Ruqa’I suburb on Eid El Fitr (Muslim holiday after Ramadan) in Kuwait despite the chaos that erupted before her scheduled performance. Many had speculated that Pascal would cancel her concerts fearing for her safety, but she broke all barriers in her way and insisted on singing in the country.
The concerts were marked with success as Kuwaitis presented her with flowers and heavy security was provided to ensure her personal safety and to avoid the occurrence of any problems. Pascal stressed that she did not fear coming to Kuwait despite the strong opposition expressed by Islamist groups saying that her presence proves it. She added that the opposition did not precisely target her, but targeted all singers, and that it did not affect in any way the crowd of people who eagerly came to hear her and were the cause of her success. - Albawaba.com
