“Sing, Abeer! Singing is an inedible desire and a lasting whim. Sing, as much as you can, in the fleeting moment of a time that does not wait. Abeer Nehme, between your performance and your feelings, I have been building a joy ever since you first toasted my melody with the magic of your voice.”– Marcel Khalife
