Kuwaiti Maestro – The Opera Man

There once was a show called “Arabs Got Talent”, and on this show, this person was revealed to the world as the Kuwaiti Luciano Pavarotti in-the-making.

AbdulRahman Al Mehameid is a talented, inspiring Opera singer, with no venue to properly give him the push he so rightfully deserves. He also sings Khaleeji, but I would be more inclined to attend an Opera Night ass opposed to Khaleeji. Thats just me.

I read somewhere that there are plans in the pipelines to build an Opera house in Kuwait, this would be a project long overdue in a country that wishes to compete with neighboring GCC countries, but clearly has not invested much in terms of Arts, Music and Live Entertainment.

Come on Kuwait!

The reason I write this post at this point in time is because this happened on a tuesday night:

my first celeb-a-stalk experience 😛

Despite my invading the privacy of his Dinner, he was very friendly and extremely kind.

I seem to have switched on some sort of celebrity magnet, as just the other day (yesterday infact) I was at the hospital waiting for my results when a woman (don’t all stories involve women? :P) walks into the waiting area with what appeared to be an assistant, a maid, and a boy of maybe 1.5~2 years of age. What caught my attention was the scarf around her neck (reddish hair, pale, black dress, high heels), as I found it an odd fashion sense in a hospital of all places.

She took the seat next to me (or behind me depending on how you look at it, the chairs were circular in pattern), so as I was listening away obliviously to my music, a little girl who was being egged on by her sister walks up to this fashionable woman, and I hear her say “I watch you on TV”, to which the fashionable femme responds “habibti” and starts kissing and hugging the little girl.

I had no idea who she was tho, and didn’t find out.
