Introducing Famous People on WKD

Fairouz, Lebanese singer
Born November 21, 1935

Nouhad Wadi Haddad famously known as Fairuz
(also spelled Fairouz or Fayrouz) is a Lebanese singer who is widely considered to be the most famous living singer in the Arab world and one of the best known of all time. Her songs are constantly heard throughout the region, and still spark Lebanese national pride.

She was born in Jabal al Arz (Cedar Mountain) to a Syriac Catholic father and a Maronite mother, and converted to Greek Orthodoxy when she married Assi Rahbani, one of the two brothers who helped shaping her singing career. She is also the mother of the Lebanese singer and composer Ziad Rahbani and the Lebanese director and photographer Rima Rahbani.

She was first noticed at the International Festival of Baalbek, where she performed many of her songs. She became famous after appearing on the "Lebanese Nights" part of the festival for many successive years. Fairuz is commonly known as "Ambassador to the Stars" and "Neighbor to the Moon".

Some of her songs on youtube:

Don't Call, No body is here-لا تندهي

لا تهملني-don't Neglect Me

Love Storyبيقولوا الحب بيقتل الوقت

When at the Doorلما ع الباب

I am Scared of Darknessأنا خوفي من عتم الليل

I Have Yearningأنا عندي حنين-

When at the Doorلما ع الباب

If we can choose our belovedلو فينا ننقّي حبايبنا

Who Told Youمين دلّك بالهوى ع بيتنا

I remember youبتذكرَّك

يا حلو شو بخاف

Something is Going on-في شيء عم بيصير
