Amr Diab, as you undoubtedly know, is the best selling Arabic musical artist/singer in the world. But what else would you like to know about him?

Born in Port Said, Egypt in 1961, Amr studied Arabic music at the Cairo Academy of Art. He recorded his first song, El Zaman, at the age of 23. His career really began to take off in the 1980’s, and by the 1990’s he had achieved a degree of superstardom previously unheard of for an Arabic singer.

I’m not the biggest Amr Diab fan in the world, but I know there’s a lot of interest, so I’m currently preparing a detailed biography and discography. I’m wondering if there’s anything in particular you’d like me to cover? How about it fans, any bit of information you’re dying to know about Amr Diab? Maybe I can turn it up.
