Radio Baladi co-sponsors Mother's Day fundraiser & Comedy night in Dearborn

Acclaimed Syrian Actor Jamal Suliman will appear at a special Mother’s Day event in the greater Detroit Arab and Chaldean American community. The event, Mother’s Day 2010 with Syrian Actor Jamal Suliman, Arabic Vocalist Emad Batayeh, and Comedian Mo Amer, will take place on Sunday May 9, 2010, 5:00pm at the Farmington Hills Manor, 23666 Orchard Lake Road, Farmington Hills, Michigan.

“We are very excited to host Jamal Suliman on his first visit to Detroit,” said Laila Alhusinni, director of U.S. Chaam Media and one of the organizers of the event; she went on to say, “Mr. Suliman is one of the top actors of television, film, and stage in the Arab world today. We are honored that he will join us as we celebrate Mother’s Day along with one of Arab Detroit’s hottest vocalists, Emad Batayeh and comedian Mo Amer, of “Allah Made Me Funny.”

Jamal Suliman is a prominent Syrian-born producer, director, and actor of television, film, and stage. Suliman was a lead actor in the historical television series "Saladdin," depicting the life of the great Arab leader Saladdin. Suliman has appeared in several films, but has preferred to use television as his main medium for stardom. Suliman's popularity and fame spread to a wider Arab audience when he was selected to play a prominent role in the late Ahmad Zaki movie, “Halim”. He starred in the Egyptian television program “Hada'eq el-Shaytan” (Gardens of the Devil) and received rave reviews for his acting in the series. On a humanitarian level, Suliman was selected as an ambassador of the United Nations Population Fund.

Emad Batayeh is one of the leading Arabic vocalists in the U.S. and Canada. Batayeh was born to a Jordanian family in Detroit and as a young boy, demonstrated a remarkable passion for Arabic music as a virtuoso of the Arabic keyboard. As a teenager, he began to sing at local events and today is in demand nationally at many of the nightclubs, weddings, festivals, and cultural events in the Arab American communities. His recent video “Ingrah Min Tani” was an instant hit throughout Arab America and has been one of the leading music videos broadcast on Arab television networks and social network sites throughout North America and the Arab world.

Mo Amer is a brillant personality in the world of comedy. A Palestinian, Amer was raised in Kuwait and settled at the age of nine in Houston, Texas where he resides today. Although his family hoped he would become a physician, Amer had a different plan; he became a comedian on the comedy tour, “Allah Made Me Funny.” In addition to the U.S. and Canada, he has performed in Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Bahrain. He is one of the most provacative Arab American comedians today.
