Shock tactics at St George's Hall concert to raise issue of Syria
10:00am Tuesday 29th October 2013 in News
A relief charity will use shock tactics at a concert in Bradford tomorrow to raise awareness of suffering in Syria.
Human Appeal’s Sounds of Light event will mix documentary footage from war-torn Syria with music and comedy.
The concert – which is part of a 12-date tour and is aimed at attracting family audiences – will be hosted by Na’eem Raza, a presenter from Islam Channel, and American actor and comedian Omar Regan.
“Our plan is to punctuate the happy family atmosphere with these distressing stories from the daily lives of ordinary Syrian people and bring the harsh reality of this terrible tragedy home to British people,” said Mr Raza.
The charity hopes to raise in more than £1 million during the course of the tour.
The concert – which will feature Maher Zain – is at St George’s Hall. To buy tickets visit soundsoflight.org.
