Top Saudi singers celebrate the kingdom’s football team in a night to remember
In a night full of song and celebration in the Green Hall in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia’s most popular singers performed at a carnival, celebrating the Saudi Arabian national football team making it to the Russian World Cup.
Renowned Saudi Arabian singer Mohammed Abdu was the leading act, performing his most popular songs. He was followed by singing sensation Rashed al-Majed, and Abadi al-Johar, who began by thanking the Sports Authority and its president, Turki Al-Sheikh.
The international band, ‘2 Cellos’, also graced the stage with a musical performance remixing songs like Despacito, the widely popular song that reached 4.5 billion views on Youtube.
Maestro Hany Farahat led the orchestra behind all the singers, while previous and current players of the Saudi football team stepped on the stage to take photographs with Saudi sports officials.
On the list of performers was also Rabeh Saqr who sang some of his most popular national songs.
“It is a great honor for me to sing for the Green (Saudi football team) in the Green Hall. On this occasion there is a new song we created for the Saudi team, lyrics written by His Excellency Sheikh Turki al-Sheikh and I composed it,” said Saqr.
This celebration brought the Green Hall back to the art scene after a long absence, where it used to host sports clubs celebrations and top Saudi artists in the 1980s.
