Close contacts to Saudi singer Jawad El Ali have revealed that the singer has been struck with a sever case of the flue and lost his voice as a result. The singer's condition had gotten so bad that he was forced to use written communication with those around him.
According to the Arab magazine Sayidaty, doctors have warned Jawad to not use his voice even if it returns for at least two months. This in turn has caused the singer to postpone his upcoming album until his condition is back to normal. The illness has mostly hit his vocal cords in turn making him loose his voice. Jawad has even gone to religion priests in the hope that they may help him, but to no use.
An attempt was made to retrieve further details regarding the condition of Jawad from family members, but they all refused simply saying that hopefully Jawad's health is improving and he will return to the scenes in no time.
Jawad had recently finished putting the final decorating touches on a new office in Bahrain which gave rise to the rumors of his immigration from Saudi Arabia and finding permanent resident in Bahrain. The singer was very upset with the rumors that were circulating and was quick to put an end to them saying he only opened an office in Manama and had no intention of residing there, adding that his only home is in his country Saudi Arabia, and that he does not think of ever leaving it. –Albawaba.com
