New York, NY (Top40 Charts / VoicesOut) Landmark moments in musical history have a way of unfolding at the Greek Amphitheatre in Los Angeles. And so, it will be again on April 27 when Algerian raï superstar, Khaled, and Iran's greatest popular singer, Andy, join forces with an all-star band and guest vocalists from Cuba, Latin America, Pakistan, Lebanon, Morocco, the U.S. and beyond. The concert is a celebration of the earth's cultural diversity, uniting faiths, nationalities and musical genres in an electrifying evening of music.

It's been ten years since Khaled has performed on an American stage. Though he has returned with full force, working on a groundbreaking album, Coming Together, in L.A.'s historic Sunset Studio. It's been said that Khaled raï, a signature North African music style. The word means "advice" or "opinion." It began as the sound of the street in Khaled's native . But starting in the 1970s, a teenager with an uncannily moving voice, Khaled went on to raise the genre to a high art form. Over the years, he has collaborated with an Arabic orchestra, Bob Marley's I Threes on a series of reggae hits, Carlos Santana on "Love to the People," Marc Anthony on a Latin dance track "C'est La Vie," Pitbull on a pumping Arabic pop hit, and now, a forthcoming collaboration with Andy, Riffat Sultana, Carlos Santana, DJ Snake, Elan Atias, French Montana, and Stevie Wonder among others. The Coming Together album and this unity concert are produced by veteran composer/music producer Dawn Elder in association with Sonic Imports, Voicesout.org. and the Ultimate Vocal Music Summit.

Khaled's resume includes 10 Diamond, Platinum, and Gold albums, the highest-selling Arab album in history (123 Soleils), chart-topping pop hits "Aïcha" (1996) and "Didi" (1992), the latter produced by the inimitable Don Was. Khaled is a four-time winner of BBC Radio 3 World Music Award, and was named by NPR one of the "50 Greatest Voices in Music."

Andy Madadian has been called the "Persian Bono." He's recorded 15 albums over a 30-year career, singing in four languages, and incorporating influences from African music, Western Pop and Flamenco. Andy's music is banned in his own country, although he was the first Iranian/American singer to perform at the White House. Long based in L.A., Andy has collaborated with Jon Bon Jovi and La Toya Jackson and won numerous awards, including the Ellis Island Medal of Honor in 2017. He is also an actor, appearing in The House of Sand and Fog, The Keeper and Guardian Angel; but Andy is best known for his spectacular voice and stage charisma.

Onstage at the Greek, Khaled and Andy will debut a fiery new duet with "Salama So Good" (Peace, So Good), a featured track on Khaled's forthcoming album. The Music Video will be released on April 11th, 2019.

Other guests at this historic unity concert include: Riffat Sultana (Pakistan), Elan Atias (Morocco), African-American R&B singer-songwriter Lynne Fiddmont, as well as Grammy-winning Latin producer KC Porter, renowned singer-songwriter and activist Shani Rigsbee among others. The bands draw from the most talented session players in L.A. Khaled's band includes: his long time band mates Mustapha Didouh on keyboards and vocals, French bassist Maurice Zemmour, North African percussionist Bachir Mokari, Alan Perez 2nd guitar side by side with renowned guitarist Errol Cooney (Janet Jackson, Philip Philips), Flamenco Gypsy Guitarist Alfredo Caceres, Latin percussionist Ramon Yslas (Chicago), a full brass section featuring Eric Jorgensen, Bill Esparza, John Fumo, and MD Matt Rohde of Jane's Addiction Keys, Dwight Rivera (Piano-Keys) and on drums, Herman Mathews, the driving force behind Tower of Power.
