To all dear visitors, I just want to inform you guys that I hardly get any latest news and photos of our beloved singer, Warda. Living in Malaysia makes me difficult to get all those things. I just rely on materials that I can get from the internet. Thus I'm hoping from you guys out there especially those who stays in Arab countries, feel free to send me any latest news or pictures of Warda so that I can put up here and share it with others. Thank you so much for keep supporting Warda Online! By the way, thanks to Mrs. Hanan Mostafa for her effort of sending me latest news, photos and info about Warda.

(Albawaba - February 10, 2004)

Despite doctors warning about over exhausting herself, Algerian singer Warda snuck to one of the studios near her temporary residence in Egypt to study the new different song offers she has received from a number of companies in addition to songs she herself had previously chosen. The singer is hopeful that her doctors will allow her to proceed in working on a new album, at the same time that they have forbidden her to hold any live performances.
Warda had begun holding extensive working sessions with numerous Egyptian composers and poets to choose the songs for her first album after a two-year absence. The singer had received the green light from her doctors to resume her career after undergoing liver transplant in France and successfully surviving the surgery, reported the Qatar based daily, Al Raya. The singer stressed that she wants to make a strong comeback and is careful on the kind of songs she chooses for her new album wanting to present her audience with the same standards and even better than they were used to. Warda had announced plans to return to the music world, after regaining her health and taking time off relaxing in Algeria. The singer denied previous rumors that she had left Egypt to live in Algeria on a permanent basis. Warda reestablished her old contacts in Egypt from the music industry in order to set herself up properly and begin work on a new album. The singer revealed that her stay in Egypt will be a long-term one, and denied all rumors of ending her career, at least for the time being. Warda dismissed all recent circulating rumors she had received orders from doctors to stop singing.

Algerian Warda wants to go back home
from: Albawaba.com (August 28, 2003)
Algerian singer Warda has announced her plans to return back home to Algeria on a permanent basis. The renowned star said she intends on selling her Cairo apartment. According to reports, Warda received an offer of 1.5 million Egyptian pounds for her apartment, however refused the offer; instead asking for a sum of two and a half million Egyptian pounds, claiming her apartment is more like a villa than an ordinary apartment. Meanwhile, prior to her departure, Warda met with producer Mohsein Jaber and negotiated with him a price for her recent album, which Warda recorded after recovering from surgery she underwent last year in France. The news about her return to Algeria came as no surprise. Last month, Warda denied press reports about her wish to stop her singing career and move to reside permanently in Algeria. Speaking to the London based daily, Al Hayat, Warda dismissed all recent circulating rumors she had received orders from doctors to stop singing.
Happy Belated Birthday!!!
Eventhough it has been awhile, I still wanna wish ---> Happy 65th Birthday to our beloved Warda. May God bless her with good health and happiness in life. We love her so much. Note: From the source that I found on the internet, Warda was born on 22 July 1938 in Paris, France
Warda denies stepping down
from: Albawaba.com
Algerian singer Warda has announced that she never resigned from her singing career and moved off to reside permanently in Algeria. The singer stressed that she merely took time off to be with family and friends in Algeria and now she has returned to her apartment in Cairo-Egypt, which previous rumors said that she had sold it, to continue her career plans.

According to the London based daily, Al Hayat, Warda’s return is proof that all recent circulating rumors are not true. The singer stated that she had never received orders from doctors to stop singing, and never bought a new house in Algeria, and most important never ended her singing career.

Warda said that after her 6 month vacation, she has returned to Cairo to resume work on a new album in which she plans to release once it is finalized. She revealed that she will be working with composer Salah Al Sharnoubi, whom she has chosen to compose the songs in her album.

Last month, the organizing committee for the Alexandria Song Festival in Egypt presented Warda with an honorary award along with a number of selected prominent singers from around the globe. The event took place end of June, with the participation of 11 Mediterranean countries. The judging committee for the festival was composed of Western and Arab judges some of which are prominent singers. Warda was awarded the award at the opening ceremony of the festival along with Lebanese singer Sabah.

Recently, it was rumored that had left her life in Cairo to move back to her country Algeria and reside there permanently selling all her personal belongings. In addition to the rumor that Warda’s health condition began deteriorating tremendously forcing her to remain home, adding that her status led her to refuse any offers to hold any form of entertainment or participation in any event. The singer was also unable to complete her upcoming album and had to apologize to composers and producers.

Warda holds more than two hundred songs throughout her singing career. She cooperated with great composers in her life, like Riad Al Sonbaty, Baligh Hamdy, Mohammed Abdul Wahab, Sayed Mekkawy, Mohammed Al Mogy, Farid Al Atrash, Helmy Bakr, and many others.

On the big screen, she starred in "Sout Al Hob" (Voice of Love), "Hekayty Maa Al Zaman" (My Story With Time) in 1973, "Ah Ya Leil Ya Zaman" (Oh! Night and Life) in 1977, "Leih Ya Donia" (Why This My Life?!) in 1993. She also performed in one play "Tamr Henna", and one series" Awraq Al Ward" (Flowers Buds). Warda’s last album was "Ana Leyah Meen Gherak" (Whom Do I Have Except You!?) released in May 2001.

Born in Paris to an Algerian father and Lebanese mother, and living most of her life in Egypt, renowned diva Warda has announced that she will sell her Cairo-Egypt apartment overlooking the Nile river to move back permanently to her home country Algeria. Her decision was reached earlier this month when she began moving back some of her belongings and selling some, which were not fit to ship back.
