The Voice Middle East finally made its debut last Friday night on MBC to rave reviews. And while the search for Arabia’s next hottest singer is no doubt a big draw for audiences, the show’s four coaches have also been praised by fans and TV critics for their on-screen presence.

Assi Al Helani sure has what it takes to mentor the next generation of stars in the making. In 1987, the Lebanese singer found fame through a television singing competition called Studio Al Fan when he was just 17. His debut album came about in 1991, and since then Helani has gone on to release 17 more albums, including last year’s Rouhi Ana.

Now, the 33-year-old, who is married to former Miss Lebanon Colette Boulos and has three children, is part of arguably one of the biggest talent shows to hit the region. Joining him on the Arab version of the showare Tunisian singer Saber Al Roubaie, Egyptian singer Sherine and Iraqi singer Kathem Al Saher.
