Part of the money will go toward Jandalis efforts to take music and concerts to refugees in camps, he said. The event has become somewhat controversial in parts of the Arab-American community. Some are refusing to take part because its being held at a Jewish center, organizers said. Others oppose it because the musician and some of the organizers oppose Syrian President Bashar Assad. Jandali and others helping to organize the concert said its unfortunate there is division over an event intended to help children. Jandali said the Jewish center was selected for the concert on purpose because he wants people to cross through social and political barriers so we can be human. Stop dividing our noble cause with silly things, he said. Dr. Yahya Basha of West Bloomfield , who is of Syrian descent and a longtime leader in the Arab-American and Muslim-American communities, supports the concert. He said it will highlight the magnitude of the tragedy of Syria. More than 6 million Syrians have been displaced because of the war, including about 2 million refugees who fled the country. There are about 10,000 Syrian Americans in Michigan. John Akouri, a Lebanese-American leader from Farmington Hills who will emcee the event, said: Shame on anyone who brings politics or religion into this concert. Everyone is welcome. This is America. Jandalis parents were reportedly attacked in Syria by forces supporting Assad after he played a song in 2011 calling for freedom.

She left her three-year-old son Luca at home for the evening, but paid homage to her beloved boy with her main accessory: a silver namesake necklace. Glowing: The pretty star later rugged up with a warm green coat over her red jeans on the cool evening The Lizzie McGuire actress followed in the footsteps of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West who have also been spotted wearing necklaces that display the names of their new baby girl, North ‘Nori’ West. Hilary wore a delicate splash of make-up, although the naturally beautiful mother-of-one already proved on Friday that she doesn’t need it as she stepped out make-up free in Beverly Hills looking stunning. The pretty blonde later slipped into a cosy green coat complete with a furry hood, shielding herself from the cold on the chilly autumn evening. From every angle!
