Video of man singing popular song ‘Rockabye’ with singer Anne-Marie goes viral
The video of a man singing along with British singer Anne-Marie to her song “Rockabye” through a mobile karaoke application called “Smule” has gone viral on the internet, Doğan News Agency has reported.
Mehmet Ali Şulan from the Cizre district of the southeastern province of Şırnak accompanied Anne-Marie with his lyrics in Kurdish.
The duet has received thousands of likes on social media and was shared on multiple online platforms.
Şulan said he only did it for fun, adding that the Kurdish lyrics in the song belonged to him, Doğan News Agency reported.
He said he was a member of a music band that performed in cafes.
“I started to use this application and I liked the song because of its rhythm. So, I sang along to the song. I did it just for fun, but it became serious later. I swear I had fun, I liked it. I wish that we had opportunities like these before. We want to present Cizre better. We have suffered many difficulties. I wish everything could be expressed through music,” he said.
Last year, Cizre was the scene of devastation after a full-blown conflict between the Turkish Armed Forces and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) left the district in rubble, with people living through months-long round-the-clock curfews.
