Aly Hussain The Other All Egyptian Star

Aly Hussain could have spelled his name Ali Hussein and there would be no need for spell check. But who am I to tell one of Egypt's finest male voices what to do? Aly is your unconventional artist. He could have been happily working as a busy wedding singer, but he was seeking something bigger. He is an artists not just a performer.

I give him my respect for that. The shy sounding guy who comes from upper Egypt has made waves a year prior to the revolution in Egypt. I was hoping his homeboy Mohammed Mounir would give him a hand by sharing the stage with him, but so far Mounir seems not interested.  

Aly makes good music, his voices turns even average songs into a warm fuzzy emotional affiar. He has about a dozen romantic songs. I like the kind of choices he makes and think he is a nice guy with a real talent that only few have. Most of us see him as something more than a guy with a good voice, he comes from rich musical culture that often goes unnoticed.

If I am Aly, I would try yo get booked in Lebanon or do a duet with one of those talented all Lebanese voices and meet him in the middle. This would give him new wings
