“The Butterfly would like to thank you great friends and fans for your support.It has been a very sad moment we had with the departure of our angel Sara Adib Alkhatib. We had a discussion among us whether to stop The Butterfly activities or to carry on, until Adib called for a rehearsal session. The question was put on hold for now. Adib is planning a big tribute event for our beloved Sara. The preparations have started. Please stay tuned, we will keep you all posted about the date, time and location. The Butterfly loves you all.”

On October 16, The Butterfly stated that rehearsals for the tribute event started with more information coming soon.


Our condolences to Sara’s family and The Butterfly band. May her soul rest in peace.
