Ghada Derbas ~ Best Arab Singer in North America


Ghada is a great singer and event organizer.  She is known to be professional, smart, interesting, classy, cute, a strong character with a great sense of humor.  People love her because she is genuine, honest, straight forward, and very close to her family, friends and fans. Ghada was born in Beirut, Lebanon.  She comes from a family with great talent.  Her father and cousins were known to have great voices. However, their ties to the family traditions have prevented them from pursuing a career in the music.

Ghada was a very energetic child.  She was loved by her neighbors, friends and her teachers at school. Ghada used to sing with her sisters all the time at home.  At the age of eight, for the first time, she joined the singing program called ‘3ashara 3la 3ashra on national Lebanese Television, where she sang the legendary Egyptian Artist’s Oum Kalthoum’s “Inta Oumry”.  Since then, Ghada continued to perform and win at the various galas and special music programs for children, where it was noted that Ghada has a voice of her own that is energetic with great sensations and fine technical capabilities.


With her extraordinary talent, Ghada shined at the age of eleven, when she won the singing contest at the radio station “Eza3et Al Nujum”.  Her presenting abilities, won her the first job offer at the radio station as a presenter of children programming.  She named it “Dounia Al-Atfal” – “Children World”.  The program was very successful and it was a great opportunity for Ghada to step into the media world.

Ghada started to learn music with high profile instructors in Lebanon, and then she joined the "Institute of Music” in Beirut to study the Arab-Andalusian music, vocal and music theory.  After immigrating to Canada, Ghada was accepted in Canada’s capital at Carleton University, where she took a double major in music and commerce.
