Saudi singers pen songs in English in honor of Trump’s visit to Riyadh

 

Saudi singers Majid al-Muhandis and Abdallah Rashad have both penned bi-lingual Arabic and English songs to mark the United States President Donald Trump’s visit to Riyadh.

Al-Muhandis is set to perform his song during the opening of the exhibition match between American football club Cosmos and Saudi Al-Hilal FC at Prince Faisal Bin Fahd Stadium in Riyadh on Saturday night. The song was written by Husain al-Yami and composed by Nasser al-Saleh.

Another song by Rashad is titled “Together We Prevail”, taking its cue from the theme of the Riyadh Summit set to be held on Sunday.

Trump is currently in Riyadh in his first official overseas trip as president where he is expected to sign multiple deals with the Saudi Arabia.

He is also expected to give a speech later on Sunday on the Islamic faith during a US-Arab Islamic Summit with nearly 50 other Muslim-majority country leaders.
