BURBANK, California (May 5, 2005) – World-renowned Egyptian singer, Iman El-
Bahr Darwish, will be performing this Sunday to benefit the victims of the
humanitarian crisis in Palestine. Joining Darwish on stage will be Napoleon, a
rap artist formerly of Tupac Shakur’s Outlawz. Funds at the event will be
collected by Burbank, CA based charity Islamic Relief USA.
A popular Arabic singer in the Middle East, Darwish is making a tour of major
US cities performing at various benefit concerts. Darwish has already
performed in front of delighted audiences in New York, Boston, and Detroit.
The ongoing conflict in Palestine has created a humanitarian crisis, preventing
thousands of Palestinian families from living normal lives. Many have lost their
jobs and homes and are forced to live in poverty. According to the United
Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the decline in the well-being and quality of
life of Palestinian children has been rapid and profound.
