Julia Boutros's bio

Julia Boutros is a Lebanese artist born in Beirut in 1968.

Her father is Lebanese and her mother is Armenian-Palestinian. She started singing in the Rosary Sisters’ School chorus where she was studying. At the age of 12 years old, Julia released her first single, a French tune "A Maman" (To My Mother) in collaboration with Elias Rahbani. By the age of 14, Julia released her first album "C’est la Vie".

The album was written and composed by Elias Rahbani. Around this time the civil war in Lebanon broke out. It played a central role in Julia's life and developed her desire to commit herself and her singing to humanity and civilization in the Lebanese community in particular and the world in general. In 1985, at the age of 17, she sang her successful hit single ‘Ghabet Shams Elhakk’ which was composed by her brother Ziad Boutros.

The song expressed their anger at the continued killing of the innocent: children, women, men and the elderly civilians. It became popular in every Arab house and the lyrics meanings were taught by teachers at schools. Throughout her artistic career, Julia released several albums such as "Ghabet Shams El Hak" in 1991, "Wayn Msafer" in 1992, "Hikayat Atab" in 1993, "Ya Ossas" in 1994, "Al Qarar" in 1996, and "Etawadna Alayk" in 2000.

Her last album "Ahibaii" was released in 2006. Its lyrics, adopted by Ghassen Matar, were based on a speech of Hizbollah secretary general Hassan Nasrallah, in which he addressed soldiers in South Lebanon during the 2006 Summer War between Lebanon and Israel. The album scored over 3 million dollars used to help the victims’ families in overcoming their financial problems. Throughout her career, she received several national and international awards, including (The Lebanese President’s Award), which was presented to her for her efforts and contribution, through her voice, to the Lebanese resistance.
