Celine Dion has mobilized to show her support for Lebanon in the face of the terrible explosion in Beirut’s port that killed at least 190 people, injured thousands, and displaced many others.
In an Instagram post, the famous Canadian singer donned the “Rise from the Ashes” t-shirt by famed Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad, the proceeds of which will be used directly to support ongoing relief efforts Beirut.
In the article’s headline, Dion urged fans and subscribers to follow suit and receive the limited edition T-shirt to support the people of Beirut “who lost so much in the recent devastating tragedy.”
“100% of the proceeds from this limited-edition T-shirt support [Joie Offer] relief efforts on-site to meet humanitarian needs,” said the famous singer.
Celine Dion is the latest of several world-famous celebrities and influencers to participate in the Zuhair Murad fundraiser.
Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum, Mena Massoud, Rima Fakih, Kate Beckinsale, Shakira, and others supported the Lebanese people through the symbolic summit, highlighting Beirut’s proven ability to rise like a phoenix from disasters.
It should be noted that this is not the first time Dion has appeared in Murad’s creations. In 2017, she attended the annual Grammy Awards in an emerald green dress by the famous Lebanese designer.
Celine Dion himself also has a personal relationship with Lebanon; Her late husband and manager René Angélil had Lebanese maternal roots.
Since the catastrophic explosion devastated the Lebanese capital on August 4, more and more humanitarian campaigns and initiatives by Lebanese and foreigners have provided moral and material support to Lebanon.
The call for Beirut’s rise continues to resonate across the country and around the world. The two youngest, in particular, has deeply moved the nation because of their empowering messages:
Wyclef Jean sings a tribute to Beirut, and the children of Lebanon sing about their pain, anger, and urgent call to the Lebanese to stand up and act to save Lebanon wherever they are.
