27 April 2010 - London

The renowned Lebanese singer and UNICEF goodwill ambassador Nancy Ajram is headlining the World Travel Awards Middle East Gala Ceremony on Monday 3 May at The Address Dubai Marina.

One of the best female singers in the Middle East today, she sold more than two million records by 2007, ranking third best selling female artist in Lebanese history. She has released seven studio albums to date.

Nancy was born in Beirut and raised in New Sehaile. At the age of four Nancy started showing a real affinity for music. But it was at the age of eight that Nancy really started to reveal her true promise when she won a singing competition on Lebanon television.

Nancy launched her first album ‘Mouhtagalak’ in 1998 and her second album ‘Shil Oyounak Ani’ in 2001. However, the real turning point in her career came with the massive hit from her the third album, 'Ya Salam’ in 2003 which won the hearts of people from all ages and nationalities and earned Nancy her reputation as the ‘Arab World’s Sweetheart’.

During her career, Nancy has won many awards, most recently the 2008 World Music Award.
