Last Sunday night, the artist Hiba Tawaji and music composer Osama Al Rahbani performed at the Forum de Beirut’s “Night of Hope” party amid a significant attendance.
The free celebration provided a strong message to the Lebanese to stand up against their unfortunate condition, particularly via culture, art, and music.
This performance included the music composer Ibrahim Al-Maalouf, as well as an unique and unexpected appearance by the singer Elissa, who sang a patriotic song composed by Osama Al Rahbani, lyrics penned by Kamal Kobeisy.
Elissa and Tawaji also paid respect to the Rahbani brothers, Mansour, Assi, and Elias Rahbani. The event drew a lot of engagement and acclaim from both the live audience and on social networking sites.
