Shakira is set to perform in Lebanon this summer during the 2018 Cedars International Festival, organizers announced.
The world-renowned Colombian-Lebanese singer added Lebanon as part of her “El Dorado World Tour.” She will perform at the Cedars International Festival on July 13.
In a statement, festival organizers said they invited Shakira to “send a message of peace from the cedars and from Lebanon to the world.”
Organizers expect about 14,000 people to attend the opening ceremony.
Music manager Wassim Slaiby, who directs the Anghami music distribution company, helped bring Shakira to Lebanon.
“We are confident that the concert will be exceptional,” Slaiby said. “We will continue to attract world stars through Anghami and allow them to enjoy Lebanon and the Middle East.”
The Cedars International Festival aims to honor Lebanon internationally through the beauty of the Lebanese cedars.
