BURBANK, California (May 12, 2005) – World-renowned Egyptian singer, Iman
El-Bahr Darwish, will be performing this Sunday, May 15, 2005 at a concert 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. The
event is being organized by the Bay Area Muslim Community, and funds 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 before delighted fans in New York, Boston, Detroit, and Milwaukee
during his tour.
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.
