Lebanese-Canadian Massari and Iraqi-Canadian Ali Gatie teamed up for a new song and video, I See The Dream (Badna Salam), promoting a global message of peace. The pair debuted the pop release with a pre-recorded acoustic version, as part of The United Nations World Food Programme’s pre-show for the People’s Prize Celebration during which the humanitarian organizations officially received their Nobel Peace Prize.


The two musicians are also new ambassadors for the World Food Program USA’s #ZeroHungerChampions campaign and will be donating a portion of the proceeds from I See The Dream merchandise.

Massari and Gatie both know struggle and sacrifice personally from their childhoods in war-torn countries, before their families immigrated to Canada. They met via their shared manager Wassim “Sal” Slaiby, a Lebanese-Canadian, who was just named manager of the year by Variety. -- Read Karen Bliss's Variety magazine feature in full here.
