Ruby Sings on Forbidden Grounds
It didn’t take long for Egyptian singer Ruby to be criticized for her new style of singing. Critics see her standing on forbidden grounds when adapting the classical singing style and her ability to sing in long sentences because her voice tone is limited.
According to Al Hayat daily critics referred to the classical style as the forbidden grounds, because this type of singing takes all the energy that the singer has in order to sing in long and rich sentences.
Ruby who’s been negatively criticized here and there for her performance and for her style of singing wanted to break all boarders and take on this tough task. The song “Mish Ha Ti’dar” (You Won’t Be Able To) is a soft song with long emotional sentences. This song comes as a new style that is far from what we are used to hear from Ruby. She is used to singing in fast beat with short sentences, where “Mish Ha Ti’dar” is a very slow song.
Ruby feels that she has succeeded in performing this new style what she has aimed to. She proved everyone wrong, because of her limited voice tone. She wanted to show everyone that if she says she will do something then she will do it. Throughout the song Ruby doesn’t make any attempt to move a hip or her shoulders, the only thing that’s in control is the singing.
The clip is good for the song it has a formal musical orchestra and Ruby is well dressed for it, unlike her usual songs where the emphasis is mainly on her barely covered body. Ruby hopes to set an example for other singers to follow in her footsteps.
