Biography

Lebanon (2002 – present)

Haifa Wehbe (Arabic: هيفاء وهبي) was born March 10th, 1970 in Mahrouna, a small farming town in Southern Lebanon.She grew up listening to jazz and R&B. She became a model at a young age and won the title of “Miss South Lebanon” at age sixteen.She won an ancillary title at the “Miss Lebanon” competition, which she had to relinquish when it was discovered that she had already been married, disqualifying her. By 1996, she was seen on over 100 magazine covers. In 2006, she was on People Magazine’s 50 most beautiful people list

In 2002, Wehbe released her first album, titled Huwa az-Zaman (هو الزمن It is Time), which was a commercial success, partly because of the release of her first single “Agoul Ahwak” (أقول أهواك I say I love you).

Her second album Baddi ‘Ayš (بدي عيش I Want to Live) was released in 2005 and lived up to expectations due to the success of its lead single “Ya Hayat Albi.” Released after the assassination of Lebanese politician Rafik Hariri, the title single of the album is about “freedom, considered to be among the most basic of human rights.”[5] Her follow-up single was her biggest hit to date, “Ana Haifa” (أنا هيفاء I am Haifa) which became her novelty song. In 2006 she released a follow up single “Bus al-Wawa” (بوس الواوا Kiss the booboo), from her upcoming album “Baby Haifa”, to be released end of 2008 or early 2009.The song was later used in a Pepsi advertisement.The song was also voted song of the year in 2006 by Radio Scope and Sawt Al Musika.
