On the 4th of August 2020, a massive explosion occurred in the port area of Beirut. The blast rippled through several areas of the capital, severely damaging buildings and houses, killing more than 200 and wounding thousands. I Love Beirut was created in response to the tragedy and thanks to all of you who gave so generously, over 1 million euros in donations were raised, split between the Lebanese Red Cross and Save the Children. Tomorrow I will be sharing a special new performance recorded during the I Love Beirut concert. Today, I want to share with you an interview of mine with sophierosemont that has just been published in vanityfairfrance marking the anniversary of the Beirut bomb.
