FILE - Stars Hisham Abbas and Angham with Kassis
CAIRO – 9 January 2019: Tania Kassis performed before President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi and charmed the audience with “Ave Maria", a Christian melody which was combined with "Mawlay" (My Lord), a song for Sheikh Sayed al-Nakshabandi, reflecting a solid unity between Muslims and Christians.
The performance came when President Sisi was inaugurating Al-Fattah Al-Alim Mosque and the largest cathedral in the Middle East and Africa, Church of Nativity, in conjunction with Christmas celebrations.
The soprano left a great impression on Egyptians. Kassis commented on her official Twitter and Instagram accounts, “I am very proud to perform before the president and all Egyptians. It is a great honor!”
It is worth noting that Egyptian singers Angham, Mohamed el-Sharnoubi, and Hisham Abbas, among others, also performed during the celebrations.
