Biography

Sherine Abdul Wahhab, (Arabic: شيرين عبد الوهاب, also credited as Sherine Ahmed) is an singer, born October 10, 1980 in Cairo. She is popularly known simply as Sherine شيرين (AKA Shereen, Sherin). She started her musical career with her successful debut single, “Ah Ya Leil”.

Born in Cairo, Sherine is a graduate of a prominent Egyptian music academy. Upon graduating, she sought a record company to represent her and manage her musical career. She met up with Free Music Productions’ owner and manager Nasr Mahrous. Mahrous signed and released a debut album with fellow singer Tamer Hosny. The album included solo singles, as well as duets. Titled Free Mix 3, it is one of the mix-tapes Mahrous usually produces but was exclusively for these two artists. Although Sherine was a new artist with Free Music, Tamer had signed with Mahrous earlier.

The album included Sherine’s debut single, “Ah Ya Leil”, which garnered huge success in Egypt and throughout the Middle East. Critics and audience were impressed with Sherine’s vocal abilities, but wanted her to revamp her image. The song included local musical styles from traditional Egyptian voice techniques to usage of traditional Egyptian music instruments common to the genre. Hosny’s single, along with the music video, were also received very well and this mixtape was considered a milestone in Free Music’s short history.
