Haifa sings in Bahrain despite efforts to stop her

Lebanese superstar Haifa Wahbi held a concert with Lebanese singer Fadel Shaker in Bahrain this week, celebrating Labor Day at the Khalij Hotel.

According to the London daily Elaph, Haifa appeared wearing a conservative green dress, as determined by the concert planners.

The concert found great press coverage in Bahrain and throughout the Arab world.

The concert was held despite requests by Islamic parliament representatives to ban Haifa’s performance. The parliamentary requests were declined by the government.

Representative Muhammad Khaled threatened to bring the communication minster before the parliament for questioning.
