Ghina Bou Hamdan Shed Tears On ‘The Voice Kids’
Ghina opened up in an interview before her audition and said that “she only sees bloody skies, hears bombs and feels fear every day because of the war in Syria.” She was visibly emotional during her audition for The Voice Kids. She performed the song “Give Us Our Childhood” in 2016 which left the entire world feeling emotional due to its powerful lyrics. According to The DailyMail “The original version of the song was sung by Lebanese singer Remi Bandali and described how miserable the Lebanese children were during The Civil War that took place between 1975 and 1990 and claimed around 120,000 victims.” Ghina began crying while singing and was very visibly emotional by the song lyrics and the audience’s reaction.
Coach Nancy Ajram pushed her red button and turned her chair around for Ghina. She joined her up on stage to sing the rest of the song with her in a heartfelt moment that made Ghina cry even more. The other two judges turned around for her and sang her praises, but she ultimately chose to be on Nancy’s team. She was later eliminated in the next round of the competition but certainly left an everlasting mark on The Voice Kids in her fight for children’s rights in Syria.
