Human Appeal International Australia has successfully hosted for the fourth consecutive year the Sounds of Light Concert 2010 in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. Over 5000 people attended and 960 orphans were sponsored during the fundraising event.
A variety of prominent Islamic Nasheed artists from around the world performed during the concert including Mutasem Bllah Alasali from Syria, Mohammed Al-Azzawi from Iraq, Maher El Zein from Lebanon, Gulf Echo from Saudi Arabia, Raihan Band from Malaysia and Ahmad Abugazala from Australia. The main objective of this event is to raise awareness of supporting poor and needy children suffering around the world. Furthermore it encourages the importance of orphan sponsorships and the huge difference this makes in their lives.
The artists performed Anasheeds that called for reviving human values and praised the Prophet (pbuh). Such outstanding performances produced an atmosphere of joy and happiness among the audience.
This year for the very first time the concert was brought to life with presence of four orphans from Sudan, Jordan, Kosovo and Bosnia, sponsored through Human Appeal International Australia. The orphans played a major role during the concert and captivated the hearts and minds of the audience.
Asawer, an orphan from Sudan delivered a touching heartfelt poem in Arabic, Florentina from Kosovo sang a song in Albanian and Laith from Jordan performed a song (Nasheed) in Arabic.
