The International Football Federation (FIFA) unveiled the fourth official song of the World Cup, which featured 4 Arab artists.
The song “Light The Sky” was released thanks to a collaboration between 4 Arab female artists, namely the Emirati singer Balqis, the Moroccan-Canadian star Noura Fathi, and the Iraqi Rahma Riad, in addition to the songwriter and recipient of awards and distinctions, Manal Benchlikha.
The video for the song also celebrated the first participation of female referees in the World Cup, by showing the six female referees who will officiate some matches of the Qatar 2022 World Cup and help referee them, namely the French Stéphanie Frappart, the Rwandan Salima Mukansanga, Japanese Yoshimi Yamashita, Brazilian Newsa Pak and Mexican Karen Diaz, in addition to American Catherine Nisbet.
“Light The Sky” is the tournament’s fourth soundtrack, following “Come On”, “Welcome” and “The World is Yours to Take”, and more recordings will be released before the competition begins on November 20.
“Light The Sky” invites us to sing together if we are truly united, brings to life the spirit of collective celebration of the World Cup and is a motivational message to deliver a different tournament in style,” said Moroccan RedOne, producer and executive director of FIFA Entertainment.
