I’m very pleased to let you know that my new single, Ahmed Al-Jumaili, has now been released. Click below to watch the video.
The song is in memory of Ahmed Al-Jumaili. Below is a snippet from the guardian, which explains what happened to him.
[Ahmed was] an Iraqi migrant who was shot dead in Dallas as he stood outside his apartment to photograph his first snowfall.
Ahmed Al-Jumaili had waited a year for paperwork to be completed so he could join his wife, Zahraa, in the US, where they hoped they could start a new life together in a safer country. She greeted him at the airport with balloons, flowers and a sign that said she had “waited 460 days … for this moment”.
Less than three weeks later, Jumaili was dead: killed in an apparently random shooting by unknown assailants who are still at large. Police said that Jumaili, his wife and her brother were outside their apartment complex in a north Dallas suburb late last Wednesday, taking photographs of snow in the parking lot.
