The Arab World Supports Fairuz

After long years of fame and many generations who grew on loving Fairouz worldwide, Fairouz the legend have been banned by the Rahbani brothers through a lawsuit from meeting up with her fans in Lebanon and abroad, Assi and Mansur left the talented Diva alone to face their gold digging sons.

Fairouz’s phenomenal voice amazed us over the years through her brilliant performances; she survived a hard life with her late husband even though he helped establish the legend Fairouz through his soft compositions and had the copyrights for the Rahbani Brothers. Rumor has it that he spent most of the money she earned in her glory years on gambling but her love for her made her forgive him and when he first got sick she sang for him in a concert ‘sa2aloni el nas’ which brought tears to the crowd. Now after many years of his death his family wants to still control her?

The stars and celebrities of the Arab world are holding a peaceful sit-in with Lady Fairouz to support her against the Rahbani brothers in Beirut on the twenty sixth of this month. Celebrities from all over the Arab world are expected to be part of it like the Egyptian actress Elham Shaheen who flew especially for the occasion from Egypt to Beirut.

Tamer Hosni the youth’s idol is supporting Fairouz in his own way, he composed, wrote and sang a song with the title of her name ‘Fairouz’ that is currently been broadcasted over most of the Lebanese radios, what a noble artist!

The Rahbni Brothers took Fairouz copyright over the years and they are still getting paid for any of Fairouz songs that are broadcasted all over the media. Haven’t they had enough all these past years? Can’t the most famous living Arabic singer work with someone else and enjoy the few years left in her life? Everyone deserved to retire at some point and our lady has had enough of the Rahbni Brothers and deservers the freedom to sing wherever and whenever she wants. Even though she might have signed contracts ages ago it’s time for The Rahbani Brothers to Respect her wish, after all she is an essential part of the family, it’s a shame that such issues have to reach courts.

Our love for the spark of the Lebanese national pride (Fairouz) makes us very upset to see her going through such a difficult time. We should all unite and protest against this.

What do you think about this scandal? Doesn’t Fairouz deserve her freedom?

“Ya maresal maraseel 3l day3a l areebi khdli bdarbak hal mandeel w ati la habibi”

Hope the message reaches to ‘habibtna’ Fairouz and she finds out how much we her fans support, appreciate and love her.
