Carol Samah denies being a guest on CNN
Lebanese singer Carol Samaha has denied recent circulating rumors that she was held a special guest on the American television network CNN. It was rumored that Carol was invited to talk about her journey in her music career and how she moved from being a performer on the Rahbani famous theater stage to becoming a well-known singer throughout the Arab world.
According to the London based Elaph, Carol revealed that she was shocked to hear such news, adding that she had never received such an invitation from any international networks. Carol announced that she is currently working on her upcoming album under the production of Mega Star. The singer refused to give out details regarding her album, wanting it to be a surprise for her audience.
Samaha had for the first time reached the number one spot on the popular show "Voda Phone Top Ten" on the Arabic music satellite channel Mazzika. Samaha is the first singer to defeat Egyptian singers Amr Diab and Mustafa Amar for the first spot since its fourteen weeks of broadcasting.
Carol also marks the first time a female singer accumulates the highest percentage of viewer votes, which reaches over 2000 every week. The latest music video "Italaa' Fieh" (Look at Me) by Carol has witnessed enormous success. The song is broadcasted at least four times a day on most Egyptian music channels.
Carol recently visited Egypt and filmed an episode for the satellite television channel Dream. The channel still airs sections of the interview four weeks after its filming date, due to the large amount of requests by viewers. It was revealed that Carol was to film a new music video for Dream TV, but nothing has come of it until this date. –Albawaba.com
