Saudi singer, Loulwa Al Sharif, performer at what can best be described as a historic concert in Jeddah and the audience was pretty much mesmerized.
While Loulwa has been performing in private concerts for a while, this was the first public concert in Saudi to star a Saudi woman
The Saudi government has allowed musicians to play live in public since last year as part of reforms undertaken by Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman.
As the night went on, Al Sharif sang songs by Eric Clapton, Santana, Sade and Adele.
When her last song “I’ve got a woman” ended, the energetic crowd asked for more and she sang Nat King Cole’s “LOVE” and Santana’s “Black Magic Woman” for them before taking the final bow.
