Mariah Carey performs in Saudi Arabia for Human Right movement
Mariah Carey performs in Saudi Arabia…United States pop star singer Mariah Carey performed in Saudi Arabia, not minding calls for her to abrogate the show in protest at human rights infringement in the Gulf kingdom.
Mariah Carey was putting on a full-length long-sleeved black glitter dress and with her revealed hair when she performed.
She took the stage in the coastal city of Jeddah on Thursday as the first global female songstress to put on a show in the kingdom, which has freed social hinderances in recent years in a bid to pull the attention of tourists and investments.
Carey’s showcasing came after she was requested to lend a hand to detained women’s rights activists, during the reports by rights group that they have encountered torment and sexual abuse.
Moreover, Walid al-Hathloul, the brother of detained rights activist Loujain, wrote on Thursday;
“As a fan of Carey’s work, I’d like to see her ask for the release of my sister while she is on stage. “This concert is a pathetic attempt to show that the country is becoming more tolerant toward women. But there are many women languishing in Saudi prisons, simply for campaigning for the better treatment of women.’’
Majority of the women locked in 2018 have rallied for the right to drive – which was given authority in June and an end to the kingdom’s male guardianship system.
