Cairo Opera House presents Nancy Ajram with Golden Record
Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram has been honored at the Cairo Opera House in Egypt at an event hosted by the Egyptian magazine “Akhbar Al Nogoom,” drawing a massive crowd for a spectacular performance.
Nancy was presented with a Golden Record award along with Lebanese singer Wael Jassar and Egyptian singer Mohammad Hamaqi for their great contributions to the music industry.
Nancy sang “Ana Masri” (I’m Egyptian) during the celebration, and expressed her gratitude and honor for receiving the award. She sang a collection of her most popular hits ending her performance with the song “Ana Masri” once more. It has been suggested that this song was her ticket to obtaining Egyptian citizenship.
Nancy has just completed filming the music video for her song “Ajmal Ihsas” (The Best Feeling) from her latest album. She selected Lebanese director Saeed Al Marouq for the first time, after working with Nadine Libky.
The story of the clip revolves around two lovers who communicate with each other in sign language, an extraordinary step that reaches out to a new audience.
Recently Ajram held a grand performance in Tunisia in honor of the fiftieth anniversary of the Tunisian national military. During her stay in Tunisia Nancy visited the 'SOS village,' an orphanage for children of all ages, where the singer spent quality time talking with the children.
"I try to make a difference in the lives of children, even if it means putting a smile on their faces," said Nancy.
