With large billboards and a public concert, Yemenis welcomed talented singer Maria Qahtan, currently competing in the final stage of MBC’s The Voice Kids.

Al-Wahda Stadium in Sanaa was not prepared for the huge numbers in the crowds. Their hearts were filled with the love for the 8-year-old talent.

Some even climbed on roofs of buildings next to the stadium so they could spot Qahtan, who has given hope to many in war-torn Yemenis.

Qahtan told the crowds: “You are the real winners, those who have stood with me from the beginning of my journey. You are more important to me than a thousand awards. I love you all.”
