The chords of the Canadian-Arab Orchestra played a major role in adding a distinctive atmosphere of enthusiasm and joy to the hearts of the audience, who responded with singing and warm applause. Carmen Soliman performed her most beautiful songs in the Egyptian and Lebanese dialects. The sounds of the national songs resonated hard in the hearts of immigrants who are nostalgic for their homeland. The distance between Egyptians and Arabs from their homelands did not keep them far from the updates of the news of “Arab Idol” Carmen Soliman and her latest songs.

A huge congratulation was at the heart of the theater to celebrate the marriage of artist Carmen Soliman to the talented Egyptian composer Mostafa Gad, wishing them happy marital life. Carmen surprised both her audience and her husband, Mostafa, by asking them to sing their new song, “Rabna Ykhalik Li’albi” which Mostafa has composed and which has more than a million views on YouTube. We also did not miss the social buzz of Facebook and Twitter that made all the fans of Carmen Soliman follow her trip and her party in Canada despite the time difference.
The fundraising concert lasted three and a half hours and Carmen Soliman thanked all the attendees and organizers of the ceremony and hospital 57357 and praised the role of the hospital and its noble goal to serve cancer patients from Egypt, the Middle East and Africa.
