"Chab Yousef" Gives Egypt Its Greek Song

Greek musician / singer Cheb Yousef is concerned about Egypt, he was watching things unfold in the past month and his eyes were on Egypt and its people. The Greek singer released an Arabic song and dedicated it to the Egyptian people. Titled Your Message to Egypt. In the fashion of the JFK timeless question, Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.

The young singer who is a Greek national, lives in Egypt and records his songs there. He refused to leave Egypt during the stand off and ignored call from the Greek embassy to leave his second home. I wish more Arab singers would do that and not just jump ship.

While the singer's Arabic has a bit of an accent his message does not.
