Yes, my next blog entry is entitled Muhammad Assaf. The most beloved contestant on this season’s Arab Idol. His voice is a powerhouse which still can melt you down like butter on a hot cast iron skillet. I am rooting for him, that is for sure. I am not sure how to vote for him from America. (People vote in- just as they do for American Idol) But since I only have 3 more days in the states, I can’t wait to get to vote for him once I get a SIM card from one of the Arab countries I shall be visiting.
He is a native Gazan. Though I will not be in Gaza, I will send glad tidings from Jerusalem when I visit in about two weeks time inshaAllah.
Good Luck Muhammad…You will definitely meet me when you do your famous tour of the Arab Nations.
