Born in Paris to an Algerian father and Lebanese mother, and living most of her life in Egypt, renowned diva Warda has recently announced her comeback to the music world with a new album to be released in Eid Al Fitr, according to the London-based daily, Al Sharq Al Awsat.
Despite her critical health status after the heart surgery she underwent lately, Warda is gearing up to start recording songs for her new album, which name was not revealed. "Despite the pain I'm having following the surgery, and despite all doctors' warnings, but I feel that I can't stay away from singing for long," Warda told the newspaper.
She added that her doctor agreed on the idea but insisted on accompanying her to the studios fearing from any complications that she might face due to tiredness.
Last week, the Algerian Rai King Cheb Khaled told the UAE daily, Al Bayan that he is hoping to reach an agreement with what he describes as the "Arab singing princess", Warda Al Jazaeriyah, for a duet.
Warda holds more than two hundred songs throughout her singing career. She cooperated with great composers in her life, like Riad Al Sonbaty, Baligh Hamdy, Mohammed Abdul Wahab, Sayed Mekkawy, Mohammed Al Mogy, Farid Al Atrash, Helmy Bakr, and many others.
On the big screen, she starred in "Sout Al Hob" (Voice of Love), "Hekayty Maa Al Zaman" (My Story With Time) in 1973, "Ah Ya Leil Ya Zaman" (Oh! Night and Life) in 1977, "Leih Ya Donia" (Why This My Life?!) in 1993. She also performed only one play "Tamr Henna", and one series" Awraq Al Ward" (Flowers Buds)
Warda’s last album was "Ana Leyah Meen Gherak" (Whom Do I Have Except You!?) was in May 2001. – Albawaba.com
