Khaled Selim has had about every success there is to have in media, press, TV and cinema yet he is releasing a music video for the poor. His song was featured on his album from earlier this year. Its a call for education as a way to escape the poverty cycle. He is right and things are looking great in this story he tells with so many hopeful young faces from Egypt that show child labor and these kids should be having fun instead of working in dark and tough places.
Education is really the ultimate equalizer for all of us. Egypt is no different, so many young people with the right education and with a a little bit of support they can achieve great things for themselves, their families and their country. The song Khalid calls education is the last hope–he is right to urge these folks to pay attention to their young ones and give them a chance instead of asking them for join the labor force for a quick buck.
I wish, more A list artists released such social songs that speaks about real life struggles and connect with families where they need to be urged to do the right thing. We all need to support one another, we need to make it easier for these kids to go to good schools, simple things as making sure they live close to a school can make a difference or even allow night school. Thank you Khaled for such a lovely song that will make a difference.
