Anghami announced the production of a song and launch of a 1.2 million songs playlist to inspire listeners to support Covid-19-hit communities through the World’s Tallest Donation Box.
The digital music streaming platform produced the song titled “Stronger Together,” performed by Khalifa el Naser and Mojo, in support of the humanitarian initiative. Revenues generated from the song streams will be donated to Covid-19-hit individuals and families.
A ‘donate’ button added on the platform enabled millions of users across the GCC to provide meals for Covid-19 relief directly through the initiative’s website www.tallestdonationbox.com.
The playlist of 1.2 million songs reflects the amount of meals and food parcels that will be secured by the end of the campaign.
Launched last week by the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) in collaboration with Burj Khalifa, the World’s Tallest Donation Box enables companies, entities and the public to purchase lights of Burj Khalifa, for as little as Dh10 each.
For every light purchased for Dh10, one meal is provided to someone affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, with the ultimate goal to illuminate Burj Khalifa’s 1.2 million lights and secure 1.2 million meals to the ’10 million meals’ campaign.
Elie Abou Saleh, vice president of Anghami in the GCC, said, “We are part of a community, and today more than ever we are called to do more. With the help of our production studio, we created a song that speaks to the heart to inspire people to join our efforts in supporting others that are in need. All revenue generated from this track will be donated.”
