Joseph Terterian in 2013
HOW YOU WERE INVOLVED:
I was a member of the cast and solo singer
I performed the Peace Child at the Grande Salle of the Palais des Nations at the UN Office in Geneva in August 2013 in Switzerland
WHAT YOU ARE DOING NOW:
I am a Syrian Armenian, currently based in Dubai working as a full-time musician. I have two residencies in two different hotels in Dubai (Palazzo Versace and Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa). I left Syria in 2015 and I lived in Armenia, my motherland, for a while before I establishing myself in Dubai where I worked different types of jobs to make ends meet but then I decided to focus on music.
MESSAGE / REFLECTION:
I just want to wish the happiest 40th birthday to Peace Child for giving us the opportunity and platform to talk about issues that matter to the wellbeing of our planet. For always shedding the light on crucial matters. It was an honor for me to represent Syria in 2013 in the musical 2050 The Future We Want where I had the chance to meet with wonderful humans, voice my concerns about the war in Syria and make friends that I will cherish for life.
