Al Noor in major 'Emaarat' tribute
Dubai, March 29, 2014
Dubai-based Al Noor Training Center for Children with Special Needs’ international ambassador Benedetta Paravia (Princess Bee), has announced the final production of her duet “Emaarat”, which will be the first-ever international tribute to the UAE by an international artist.
The project will see artistic co-operation between the Italian artist and local Emirati celebrities and nationals.
The Arabic part of the song will feature the famous Emirati singer Harbi Alamri, who was the personal singer of Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, father of the Nation.
“The UAE has come a long way, from a barren landscape to a modern-day oasis with everything one could hope for. I wanted to talk about what I loved about the country and in my journey I found others who shared the same sentiment. Together we will release a song that truly reflects all that is beautiful about the place and our love for Shaikh Zayed and Shaikh Rashid,” said Benedetta.
The singer-songwriter and doctor in law is known for her humanitarian efforts for the children in the Middle East. In 2006, she wrote the song for peace “Angels”, inspired by real stories of child victims of war, which is the only song ever to receive the patronage of Unesco.
She also co-founded, with her parents, Angels, a non-profit organization to care for sick children coming from Middle Eastern poor or difficult countries and saved the life of children from Gaza strip, Palestine, Iraq, South Lebanon, Morocco, Syria and Lybia.
With this engaging single Princess Bee has created a collaboration with some Emirati young women such as Noora and Sara Beljafla. “Emaarat” song’s production will be done by Fais Al Said, in his recording studio in Dubai and the video clip is being directed and produced by an Emirati company, DST Dubai Sound TV and Cinema Production.
The proceeds from the song will go to Al Noor Training Center for Children with Special Needs to contribute to the well being of its students and part to Angels, stated Benedetta.
