Balqees Ahmed Fathi is a well known Singer from Yemeni and Emirati origins. She is very popular through her musical works in that part of the world. She has been around for over 12 years when she started composing music with her father. She had a break in-between this period to create room for her educational pursuits. She has done a lot to achieve the measure of popularity (which is well deserved) that she is enjoying today.
She came to limelight of international recognitions when she released the single: “Ya Hawa” in the year 2012. Riding on the waves of that solo effort, she waited for a year; then she came out with a big bang. She released her debut album with the title track: Majnoun. It was widely accepted and from that moment her fame began to spread like a wild bush fire.
She had prepared herself well for this moment in her life time. Before any great thing happens, there must be preparations. Balqees did this by learning to play a number of musical instruments at the very early stage of her life. With the support of her father and dedication to learn on her part, she was able to make headway during this embryonic stage of her career.
The searchlight is now on her and her years of preparations are the reason she is very much on top of the game today. She has released her second LP and the reception which cuts across all the divides is very encouraging. She is now a national symbol in UAE all due to the recognition of her musical prowess. The UAE is 40. Balqees has contributed her quota through the release of a music video as team for the anniversary celebrations
Balqees was born the 20th of October 1988 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. She is the daughter of Ahmed Fathi; her mother is from UAE.
