Nancy launched her first album, “Mouhtagalak” in 1998 and her second album, “Shil Oyounak Ani” in 2001. However, the real turning point in her career came with the massive hit from her the third album, “Ya Salam” in 2003, which won the hearts of people from all ages and nationalities and earned Nancy her reputation as the “Arab World’s Sweetheart.”
During her career, Nancy has won many awards, most recently the 2008 World Music Award.
