Egyptian singer Mohamed Hamaki will perform in Saudi Arabia’s Jeddah and headline the first of three nightly concerts to kick off the Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix (GP), organizers have announced.
Hamaki will perform on December 3, joining a line of international stars who have been announced to perform in the three-day entertainment schedule at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit.
