Reuters | @angelachallita Home Magazine Entertainment Singing in support of Beirut, Wyclef Jean just wrote and performed a heartfelt song entitled ‘Immortal’ for the blast-struck city. The American-Haitian musician became fond of the city through his years of collaboration with Lebanese composer Guy Manoukian. According to Manoukian, the pair have worked together for the past 13 years, during which Wyclef Jean visited Beirut and fell in love with it, becoming “more Lebanese than most.” When approached by Manoukian, the rapper embraced the chance to write a song for beloved Lebanon. And he did it excellently. His emotional lyrics paired with footage selected for the official video strike many chords, from Beirut’s experience through the protests to the explosion and onwards. Even when a bomb blast, we gonna rise from the ash. The song pays tribute to Lebanon’s beauty, strength, courage, and resilience – something we Lebanese must never lose sight of.
