BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Tunisian singer Ahmed Sherif arrived Tuesday in Palestine to sing in the final episode of “New Star”, a Palestinian reality show similar to Britain's X-Factor.
Amir Hamam, the director of the show, and a group of the directors of Ma’an-Mix TV, welcomed Sherif in Bethlehem and stressed his huge following by Palestinian audiences.
Hamam said that the participation of Sherif in a Palestinian singing competition show is considered a chance and a message to all the Arab artists to support Palestinian art and visit Palestine.
