Amal Hijazi enters the world of television commercials
The word was out in Lebanon that Lebanese singer Amal Hijazi had taken an unusual turn in her career and is planning to shoot television commercials. It was stated that Amal had received an offer from the international company Panasonic to do a TV commercial with more details to be revealed at a later time.
According to the London based Elaph, Amal had given her initial acceptance for the offer, saying it would be an interesting experience to do a TV commercial. The singer is currently in Morocco where she is shooting a special episode for the show Caravan, for the Lebanese Broadcasting Company (LBC) satellite station with TV announcer Natalie Mamari.
Algerian singer Fuedel revealed that he is the main reason behind the success of Amal. Fuedel commented that before his duet with Amal "Einak" (Your Eye), she was not well known in around the Arab world and even in Lebanon.
Fuedel added that Amal benefited in a major way from their duet by being able to double her popularity. Fuedel expressed that he hopes Amal does not find offense in his remarks, but he was simply saying the truth and that the credit of her popularity is owed to him.
Her album "Zaman" has gone beyond expectations in the number of breaking figures in the music market all over the world. The twelve-song album, produced by Universal Company in Paris, held two major surprises, the first, her duet with Fuedel, written by Fuedel and Tony Abi Karam, and the second with the duo Omar and Rafi.
Hijazi is currently preparing for the filming of her new music video "Id'eeli" (Pray For Me). All necessary arrangement concerning time, place, and scenario for the new clip have been complete and are underway.
Amal Hijazi is an architecture Engineer, but never worked in this field, saying that she is "dedicating all my time to music, for it needs lots of time and hard work." – Albawaba.com
