Lebanese singer Nawal Al Zoughbi has received a special invitation to hold a performance in Amman-Jordan at the grand opening of the newest shopping center Mecca Mall. The concert will take place on August 25, 2003 and proceed will go to the Al Hussein Handicap Association.
According to the London based Elaph, it was revealed that Jordanian singer Diana Karazone, who is one of the finalist of the Future television Arab Superstar show, will also hold a performance alongside Nawal.
Recently, the entertainment world was in shock to discover the news of the breakup between Nawal and Lebanese directors Mirna and Tony Abu Elias. No prior mention was made regarding the sudden breakup and no reason was given as to why Nawal no longer wished to work with the well-known duo.
Mirna and Tony had directed most of Nawal’s music videos, which all had brought huge success to the singer. It was also revealed that Nawal has moved to work with director Saeed Al Marouq and is in the process of shooting her first music video with him in Turkey.
Al Zoughbi has decided to put off the release of her upcoming album and any new music video until the month of November. Nawal’s decision came due to the release of so many new albums this summer season. The singer wanted more emphasis to be placed on her album, and so felt postponing it until November will ensure that most of the attention will be focused on it.
Nawal revealed that her new album features ten songs sung in the Lebanese, Egyptian and Khaliji (Gulf) style. The singer has gone back to the classical genre mixing in a touch of traditional Lebanese Tarab. Nawal plans on shooting three songs in the form of a music video in which two are to be filmed in Turkey under the direction of Said Marouq, and the third song, which tells a drama story, under the direction of Salim Turk. –Albawaba.com
