Lebanese singer Pascal Mashaalani denied circulating rumors of a secret marriage to a wealthy Arab businessman. The singer stressed that this is not the first time lies were written about her and secret marriages saying if they were true then she would be married to so many men all at once.
According to the Al Shabaka magazine, Pascal expressed that such a sacred union as marriage should not be kept secret and should be announced to the whole world. She added that she dreams of the day when she finds the right man and decides to spend the rest of her life with him, but for the time being she is as single as ever. The singer noted that she does not understand why the rumors always specify that the man she marries is wealthy, and if they had any truth to them then how come a name is never given to the man?
During her last visit to Dubai, Mashaalani held extensive negotiations with the head of music production company Rotana for the possibility of joining their team. The talks between the two sides turned out to be successful with Pascal signing a contract with Rotana and officially joining their long list of singers.
Rotana’s authority over the releases of Pascal will take effect as soon as her current contract with Music Master ends. Music Master is releasing the last album for Pascal this summer and after that Rotana will take over.
Mashaalani recently left the hospital after undergoing a surgical operation. The singer had been experiencing difficulties in her gallbladder for some time, and had been trying to avoid going to a doctor fearing the possibilities of an operation. Matters had worsened with Pascal's gallbladder that she was rushed to hospital and underwent an immediate operation. The singer is now requested to take time off until she regains her physical strength before undergoing any kind of work.
Once Pascal was back on her feet, she resumed preparations for her upcoming album. The album will feature ten songs that vary in composition and style. The most notable composition Pascal has acquired is that from the Tunisian folklore, Egyptian and Lebanese accent, along with songs taken from the Bedouin heritage.
Pascal is hopeful that her new album will be a success, especially due to the fact that she has been away from the scenes for some time. The singer has carefully selected the composers and poets for her album some of who are Tony Abi Karam. Issam Karika, and Munir Abu Yousif. - Albawaba.com
