Lebanese singer known as “The Sun of Song” Najwa Karam was unable to hold back her tears during the first episode of talent show The Voice Senior.
Lebanese contestant Dany Hatem was performing Fairuz’s song “Ahadeer Elbosta”.
Despite Dany’s beautiful voice that is similar to Fairuz, none of the judges turned their chairs.
At the end of the performance, Hatem told the four judges that even though they did not turn their chairs, she made her dream come true by standing on The Voice stage and perform in front of millions of Arabs, adding to her late father: “I did it dad.”
Moroccan judge Samira Said then asked Dany Hatem to call her two children to the stage after their mother told the panel that they are both singers.
One son kissed Dany on her shoulder when he got to the stage, an action that caught Najwa Karam’s attention.
She asked him: “Why did you kiss your mother on her shoulder?”, he answered: “Because she’s everything”, and Najwa replied with tears in her eyes: “You killed me with it”.
