“Hold Your Fire,” with lyrics that poignantly capture the universal human experiences of pain, loss, and the longing for peace, transcends geographic and cultural boundaries. “This song is a heartfelt cry for peace and a testament to the resilience of the human spirit,” states Kadim Al Sahir. “It’s an earnest message of hope and solidarity to everyone suffering around our world.”
