Palestinian Singer’s Cover for ‘Helwa Ya Balady’ Will Move You to Tears
By Reem Tolba
An old video of Lina Sleibi resurfaced the Internet, and honestly, we’re in love. If you don’t know who she is, well, allow us to enlighten you. She is a Palestinian singer, actress and model. However, her cover for the amazing Dalida’s Helwa Ya Balady simply touched us — especially when you hear the lyrics being spoken about Palestine from Palestine.
Sleibi was born on 24th of August 1992 in Palestine. She started her singing career in 2010 and released her first song in 2014. Most of her songs are about nationalism and her self-belonging to her lost country. The resemblance between her voice and Dalida’s is uncanny as both have an undeniably serene beautiful sound.
