Katia Harb attracts Egyptian producers
Close contacts to Lebanese singer Katia Harb have revealed that the singer has received an offer to present a new show for the coming month of Ramadan (Muslim fasting month). Katia had received the offer during her visit to Egypt where she took part in the operetta "Kulna Ma'an" (We are all Together) at the Cairo Opera House in Egypt alongside a large number of singers.
According to the London based Elaph, the program is basically a quiz show that is part of the Ramadan TV tradition in which viewers participate in. Katia had received numerous offers while in Cairo, but she has not yet decided which one to accept not wanting to make any quick decisions that might affect her singing career.
Harb has gained popularity and fame throughout the past eight years, which marks the time of her singing career, by singing songs in the Lebanese accent, Khaleeji (Gulf), as well as in foreign languages. Katia revealed that she will release her fourth album this spring sung mainly in the Egyptian accent, a first time experience for her. The album's songs are written by poet Bahjat Amar and composed by Amro Mustafa.
Harb denied rumors circulating in early January of this year of any recent engagement while in the US on tour alongside Egyptian singer Ehab Tawfic. For her part, Harb expressed her disturbance towards the rumors that are affecting her personal life saying that they hold no truth to them and are a failed attempt to defame her in addition to the fact that she did not get a divorce from her husband a matter, which would make any news of a recent engagement invalid. The singer announced that she is happily married and the thought of divorce would never cross her mind.
Harb, who is lately known as the James bond girl for her new look in the latest music video "Ma fina" (We Can't), has received several invitations from the Arab community in the US. She finally accepted the invitations and arranged visits to six US states, some of which are Michigan, Houston and Atlantic City.
Shooting “Ma Fina” song, written by Talaal Haidar and composed by Ghi Manukyan, the James Bond Girl has twisted her leg jumping from a high wall down to the ground. The music video has demanded a lot of physical power from Harb and was an adventurous one.
The Golden medal graduate of 'Studio al Fan' will be working on her new album which is expected to carry a new style for Harb and will include several poets and composers from Egypt and Lebanon, such as Amr Mustafa, Aiman Bahgat, Waleed Sa’d, Marwan Khoury and many others. - Albawaba.com
