Iconic Lebanese soprano Majida El Roumi will perform live at the Maraya concert hall, in AlUla, Saudi Arabia, on January 28.
El Roumi’s concerts achieved great success there where a full number of the Lebanese and Arab community residing in France and Europe enjoyed her amazing performance.
The iconic singer was born on December 13, 1956, in Kfarshima village, Lebanon. She is the daughter of the Lebanese musician Halim El Roumi.
The soprano participated in the talent show “Studio El Fan in 1974” after she sneaked out of the house with her brother and cousins, where she won the gold medal for oriental singing.
Her success prompted her father to change his mind and give her his blessings to pursue a music career as long as she continues her higher education.
In 1975, El Roumi released her first single “Am Behlamak” and her first studio album “Wadaa” in 1976.
She made her acting debut in the Egyptian renowned director Youssef Chahine’s film “Awdat Al Ibn Al Dal” (The Return of the Prodigal Son).
