Last week an array of stars came together as part of a virtual concert entitled The Sound of Beirut in order to raise money for the Lebanese capital following the devastation ensued by the blast which occurred on August 4.


On September 8, a whole host of artists including Maya Diab, The Chainsmokers, Craig David, French Montana, Latifa, Massari and more came together on the Arab world’s most popular streaming app, Anghami.

The virtual event has proven to be an enormous success with over $1 million (Dhs3.6 million) raised to help the city of Beirut in the wake of the tragic explosion.

All donations will go to Global Aid For Lebanon which launched in collaboration with the United Nations’ World Food Programme.

Thousands were injured, nearly 200 people died and many were left without homes due to the explosion.

Many have come together to raise money for the city including Dubai-based restaurants, celebrities and some fashion brands.
