'The Sound of Beirut' fundraiser concert streaming on Tuesday
Healing Lebanon's wounds one song at a time with a host of celebrity names
Shortly after the explosion on August 4, the Arab world's most popular music streaming platform Anghami prompted support of the victims and the injured by sharing links to fundraisers and initiatives organised by NGOs. This made it possible for users around the world to donate and help Beirut and its people.
Now, over a month since the blast, it is time to get behind the Lebanese capital with the power of music. On Tuesday September 8 from 10pm UAE time, dozens of artists will make an appearance on Anghami to sing and send messages of support to Lebanon and the Lebanese people and will also urge fans and users from all over the globe to donate and make "The Sound of Beirut" heard.
All donations will go to Global Aid For Lebanon in collaboration with the UN's WFP. Among the participants names include: Craig David, French Montana, Latifa, Massari, Maya Diab, The Chainsmokers, and many more.
The co-founder of Anghami, Eddy Maroun, said: 'The Sound of Beirut is a message of solidarity and support for our fellow Lebanese who have been affected by the Beirut explosion.'
