Nawal Al Zoughbi turns to the classics
Lebanese singer Nawal Al Zoughbi currently held a grand performance under the sponsorship of the International Soft Drink Pepsi in Egypt at a soccer stadium that held up to 60 thousand people. The concert was marked with remarkable success leaving Nawal breathless.
According to the London based weekly, Laha, Nawal is also preparing to shoot a new song classical from her latest album in the form of a video clip, but the singer is confused on which one to choose. Nawal did not reveal who will direct her video, simply stressing that she will choose one who presents her with the most interesting idea.
Recently, Nawal discovered that the low sales of her latest album was due to piracy. Internet hackers managed to copy her latest album and distribute the fake copies. Nawal asked her distributing company to start taking action against this intellectual property violation and have those responsible prosecuted.
Since the release of her latest album “Aineik Kaddabeen” (Lying Eyes), after 2 years of absence, Nawal is regaining her glory and success like never before. Arab radio stations and satellite television channels are broadcasting her songs heavily since the moment her album was released.
Nawal flew to Egypt to attend the party held in celebration of the release of her album in Cairo last week and the place was crowded with fans and journalists. The Voice of Tomorrow, Australian based radio, interviewed Nawal to talk about her album and cooperation with Pepsi. Nawal revealed that she is going to do another Pepsi ad to promote diet Pepsi.
Nawal is also participating in big concerts; on August 13th she will be participating in the Pepsi festival in al-Menia and a second concert in Alexandria on the 27th in Egypt. The prominent Lebanese singer is currently supervising the montage of her video clip “Aineik Kaddabeen”, which is expected to be released on Mazikka and LBC channels soon. Nawal's new work includes 12 songs sung in different accents that vary between Egyptian, Lebanese, and Khaligi (Gulf). Nawal will be filming four of her new songs in the form of musical video clips. -Albawaba.com
