Emirati singer Al Jasmi to be Ambassador at Large for UN initiative

posted on 06/04/2011: 1322 views



Singer Hussain Al Jasmi, an Emirati superstar in the Arab music world, has been nominated as "Ambassador at Large" for the Arab and Gulf region by the United Nations' Intergovernmental Institution for the Use of Micro-Algae Spirulina Against Malnutrition (IIMSAM).

Al Jasmi was last year appointed Goodwill Ambassador, joining a list of other high-profile personalities known for their contributions toward the international community, such as US President Barack Obama (and members of Obama's family, including his grandmother), Argentinean soccer legend Diego Maradona and Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt. By this promotion, Al Jasmi became the first Emirati and Arab artist to hold this title.

He had joined IIMSAM in support of the UN millennium development goals to use spirulina to fight severe malnutrition in developing countries.

Dr. Sulaiman Al Fahim, Ambassador at Large for the Middle East, North Africa and Asia and international observer at the same organisation, praised Al Jasmi for the social and human roles he played. He also praised his devotion to his art and his society, and described him as "the artist of humanity (with) the humanity of art". – Gulf News
