Singer Raja'a Bel Maleeh

Raja'a Bel Maleeh, a Moroccan singer with a huge UAE fan base, died last Sunday.

Raja'a, holding a UAE citizenship, was known for her popular "Khaleeji" (Gulf) hits, especially those written by the late President, H.H. Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

She was buried last Sunday after a long battle with cancer. She leaves behind a young son by the name of Omar.

She was only 45 when she died.

May she find eternal peace at a place far better than where she fought a losing battle.

It was good to read your comments, khaled-ad & kyle - thank you both for the sentiments.

I pasted a photo I think was taken when she & I first met.

I can tell you, she is photogenic, but even more beautiful in character and physically, in person.

She touched my life - why, I don't know. And now she's gone, I remember even more what a lovely person she was.

If you'd like to read my personal reflection on her, please go to my blog www.desperateprincessdubai.blogspot.com

May God rest her soul in peace.
