I was outside Egypt with My family used to hear Mama’s voice reciting the Qur’an and singing religious chants, so I was impressed by her voice and began to recite the Qur’an in front of her.

She said, “I love old music, and I always listen to Umm Kulthum, with love, originality, Sherine, and Hamaki, wishing to be a well-known artist, and I have my own distinctive mold,” pointing out that her friends had a great impact on her artistic excellence and adherence to art and music, because they encourage her and urge her to imitate famous artists.
