CAIRO – 10 November 2017: The Global Algerian singer Cheb Khaled posted on his Instagram account on Thursday a video to his successful song especially dedicated to World Youth Forum entitled ‘’Shabab el Alam’’ ( World’s Youth).

Khaled commented on the video ‘’I would like to thank Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and all the World Youth Forum’s organizers and representatives for giving me this great honor to perform the forum official song.’’

Khaled performed the song in the closing ceremony of the forum. After he finished Sisi and the attendees applauded loudly, Khaled greeted them ‘’Thank you Mr. President…Long live Egypt.’’

Renowned singer Khaled stated during an interview with Egypt Today on Wednesday that he is honored to participate in WYF as it is the most prominent event of its kind in the Middle East.

Speaking about WYF song, he said that as an artist he should always send peace and messages of love through his music. “We could show the world through art that we are proponents of peace not terrorist as the art is more powerful than politics and has a great effect on youth,” he said.

Khaled expressed his pleasure working with musicians of the WYF song, including poet Khaled Taj Aldin, composer Amr Mostafa, and businessman Mohamed Saadi.In terms of his participation in the forum, he noted that what brought his attention is President Abdel Fatah el-Sisi’s expression of care for youth and seeking to grow their role in society.

He added that through forum, the whole world could see the real image of Egypt, particularly as it is held in Sharm el-Sheikh, the city of peace. On the other hand, he hopes that he would perform a big concert in Egypt as he has only done so. Regarding his coming works, he has completed an album with singer Tamer Hosny.

Egypt’s first international youth event brought together 3,000 youths represented by 60 delegations. The seven-day gathering witnessed the participation of official youth representatives over 18-years of age, leaders of various youth networks, heads of state, media figures and around 250 young Egyptian expats. It was held under the slogan "We Need to Talk."

WYF sent a message of peace, prosperity, harmony and love to the entire world. It was a strong opportunity for global youth dialogue.

The idea of holding an international youth conference in Egypt was made during the third National Youth Conference in Ismailia and it was approved by President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi. In July, the president announced organizing the WYF in Sharm el-Sheikh during the fourth National Youth Conference in Alexandria.
