The Voice of the old days. When I recall my childhood, it's nothing without him. Really he represents the pure nature of Egypt.

The voice of Egypt.He disappears for long time but when he comes back, he becomes stronger than before no one can do like him.

The best voice in middle east the only who can fight with Amr diab...

Arabic song is the best song.

The original and still her music is fresh, touching, moving and gripping. The voice is the bench mark that most of these here today gone tomorrow acts aspire to be

Great voice, traditional and modern songs (for the era in which she sang). Anyone interested in understanding or studying music from the Eastern mediterranean should spend some time listening to Fairouz.

Fairouz is the best she has a very beautiful voice and plays she is the best...

In the east in the west Kaiser is the best. He and his voice make me fly anywhere I want to fly his voice gives me a very beautiful sensation that I never can fell it without his voice and his songs. He sings in a different way. No one can sing like him but him. He could and can enter any heart by his voice. He is truly unattainable. He is rightly kaiser because he reigns our hearts god bless him

I personally think this singer should be near the top of the list, he is loved by so many people and his voice is great.

He is the best singer in the middle east in my opinion, I listen to all kind of English and arabic music, and in my opinion he is the best singer in the whole world, I love his voice, personality and music. I attended his concert at Westminster central hall on the 17th of august, and it was the best night in my whole life, cannot wait till I see him again,
Hope he comes to london more often,
Love you kathem

Kathem should be the top on the list.

Very simply the best singer. His voice, personality, patriotism. Diab doesn't compare to the nightingale!

Please Juries tell me who of the top singers you have chosen have more than 30 years old of success and still alive?

I am not an Arab, and I don't listen to arabic songs much, but Ragheb is someone special. He is perfect. I think there is something wrong that his not in the top 3 or at least top 10.

Same level as Amr diab if not more. I wonder how you guys did not include initially amongst other missing names such as Georges wassouf, assi el hellani and others
