Najwa Karam receives an exclusive invitation to sing with Wael Kfoury and Diana Haddad
The huge success Lebanese singer Najwa Karam received after her duet with Lebanese diva Wadi El Safi "Ikbirna" (We Grew Older), she has received numerous exclusive invitations to hold similar duets with Lebanese singer Wael Kfoury and Diana Haddad. It was proposed by fans that Najwa holds a duet with Wael that tells the story of two lovers, or one with Diana that tells of the relationship between two sisters of two dear friends.
According to the London based Elaph, numerous letters have been posted on the personal website for Najwa that was created by fans as a new method for sending ideas and requests across to the singer. As days pass by letters are accumulating supporting the idea of a duet with other singers that tell stories of real life family and friends relationships, in the hope that the singer will reply giving her opinion and maybe agreement.
Najwa expressed that it was always a dream for her to watch El Safi sing saying that the chance to work with him was more than a dream come true and a great honor for her.
She added that throughout the past six months of rehearsals and working sessions with El Safi, she could not get over the feeling of great satisfaction as she stood by his side learning more and more from him. Their song which found a huge success all over the Arab world, told the story of a father and daughter and how times have changed as they grew older.
On a different note, ever since Najwa entered the entertainment business, her two brothers Tony and Nicola were pulled in as well, but not as singers rather as her business managers. In a private interview held with Tony, he revealed two hidden secrets that he has been keeping for some time.
The first confession that Tony made was regarding the marital status of his sister Najwa. Tony admitted that the previous rumors of Najwa's divorce are in fact true and she has been separated from her husband,Yousef Harb, for the past nine months.
Tony also revealed that he owns a beautiful voice one that would have made a successful singer out of him, but he decided not to bring it out wanting to concentrate on his sister's success.
Last year in October, Najwa denied rumors circulating about her separation from her husband Yousef Harb. She had expressed her disturbance towards the rumors that were affecting her personal life saying that not allow anyone interfere in her personal life. She had expressed that she was happy with her life with Yousef and what was reported was an attempt to harm her image and happy marriage.
Two years ago, Najwa had surprised her family and fans with her marriage to Harb, a successful businessman younger than her by several years, living in Canada at that time. Harb is well known for organizing musical concerts in the US and Canada, for the big names in the Arabic music world, including George Wassuf, Kazem Al Saher, Najwa Karam as well as others.
Karam made her debut in the music world in 1985, with her participation in “Layali Lobnan” (Nights of Lebanon) performing Asmahan’s song “Layali Al Ons” (Nights of Pleasure). She was awarded the program’s Golden Medal for her outstanding performance at the event. – Albawaba.com
