Lebanese singer Elissa has said she is “feeling better” after collapsing on stage during her concert on Friday at Global Village.

The singer posted a message on her Twitter saying: “I am feeling better. Nothing serious don’t worry! This concert will definitely be memorable! I love you all.”

She further added: “Thank u for all your well wishes! I love to keep my dubai concerts memorable. Joke aside, I’m healthy thank u for ur support [sic].”


Fans of the popular singer expressed their shock and disbelief as they watched their idol falling down mid-performance, with Mediene Fergani writing: “I just had a heart attack, what is going on @elissakh hope you’re okay Queen #Elissa.”

A Twitter fan group of the singer posted a video on Twitter showing the moment Elissa collapsed before she was carried off stage.

Following the incident, artists including Nancy Ajram, Myriam Fares and Carole Samaha posted messages wishing 45-year-old a speedy recovery.
