Waed is a Saudi musician and entertainer. Her real name is Hanan Bakr Younes. She has chosen the name Waed, which means promise in Arabic, to start her career with.

Her father Mr Bakr Younes was one of the Saudi broadcasting Channel founders. At the age of 7, Waed witnessed her first appearance on TV, where she sang in a children program. She also took part in numerous shows at high school and charitable organization concerts. Her obvious talent and distinguished voice enabled her to perform many songs written by famous Saudi composers such as Mohamed Abdu and Talal Maddah. Waed’s first appearance as a pro artist was on Orbit’s 6th anniversary held in Egypt.

In 2001, the artist released her first album “Jonoun” composed of 8 tracks, and filmed 3 video clips. Her clip “Jonoun” was nominated in the Arabic song festival, in Beirut, and won a Grammy. Waed has just completed shooting a video clip for her new song with her daughter in Beirut. The new song entitled “Dhummak” or “Hug you”, composed by the poet Turki and tuned by Jan Saleeba, is one of a new album tracks expected to be released in three weeks.

The concept of the video is the cute challenge between Waed and her daughter as both change costumes from Saudi to Lebanese to Indian and other traditional dresses. Waed hosted the Abu Dhabi TV show (AD TV) Layali Al-Samar in its first season 2009. Layali Al-Samar is an entertaining program, where every Wednesday,she meets popular Arab singers, discusses with them about their recent news and activities, and of course sings with them.
