Egyptian singer Angham is about to release her first album produced by Rotana, after her separation from Alam El Phan.
She will film a music video for one of the songs under the direction of Lebanese director Nadine Libky, marking their first cooperation.
Lebanese composer Ziad Boutrus contributed one song in the Lebanese dialect to the score, and the album features a number of songs sung in the Gulf dialect.
Angham’s second attempt to star in a film was hindered by her pregnancy.
The singer had begun preparations for the leading role in the film “Al Ishiq Wal Hawa” (About Love), along with Egyptian actors Ahmad Al Sakka and Muna Zaki, however her pregnancy made it impossible for her to continue, coupled with the refusal of the production company to postpone filming until she gave birth.
According to the London based Elaph, the first film from which Angham suddenly withdrew was “Sahar Al Laiali” (Up through the Nights), and her role was then given to Muna Zaki. Muna received numerous awards for her role, and the film witnessed tremendous success.
After learning she was pregnant Angham significantly decreased her workload. The singer declined a request by composer Hilmi Baker to perform the song “Hal Ahbabt Imra’a Qalbi,” for the upcoming Egyptian Radio and Television Network Song Contest.
Angham has several performances schedule this summer, first at the great Pyramids on July 15, and then in Tunisia at the Carthage Festival on July 28.
