Today, Lebanese superstar Elissa celebrates her 47th birthday, and the biggest names in the Arab music world have taken to Twitter to wish her well.
“Happy birthday fellow scorpio,” writes actress Hend Sabry, who has been making waves in the industry recently as she became the first Arab woman to join the judging panel at Venice Film Festival.
MTV Lebanon’s Nadia Bsat also wrote, “Happy birthday queen of hearts @elissakh,” – a nickname Elissa is often referred to as.
Radio present Rima Njeim also shared a heart-felt message to Elissa.
A fan account also shared an Instastory of Elissa setting her birthday balloons free off the balcony of a Beirut apartment.
Elissa herself is yet to post any insights from her birthday celebrations. The singer has instead been vocal in the fight for Lebanese rights over the past week; her Instagram page has been flooded with political posts drawing attention to the protests happening around the revolution.
Happy birthday from team BAZAAR, Elissa!
