Mission Amazingly Accomplished

Lara at Virgin Megastores Cairo

As most of the international stars do to release their work, Lara Scandar, the Egyptian Star Academy 6 graduate and promising singer, officially released her first CD named “Mission is You” on February 3rd, 2010 in a signing ceremony that took place at Virgin Megastores Cairo, Egypt.

In addition to her family and friends, the event was attended by hundreds of fans who came from different Egyptian cities and even from different countries to witness this special moment. Previous Star Academy title winners Mohamed Attia (Starac 1) and Nader Quirat (Starac 5) were there too to share this moment with Lara Scandar while Mohamad Bash, Ibrahim Dashti, Mohamed Sirag and other Star Ac graduates joined next day to celebrate Lara’s launch in a very private party.

Based on the concept of the red carpet, the place was mostly coloured in red with a small stage for Lara to perform her song “Mission is You” and her poster all over the place. Lara appeared with the well-known producer of her first CD, Jean-Marie Riachi and both of them answered all the questions of the fans and the media representatives. Lara signed her CD and took some photos with her fans. The event was covered by many TV channels like Orbit, OTV, Melody and others. The clip has been broadcasted for the first time on February 4th, 2010 on Melody Channel. There is also news about Lara’s ‘Mission is You’ tour in which Lara will perform in Dubai and Beirut followed by personal appearances at Virgin Megastores but no confirmed dates have been published yet.

Jean-Marie Riachi explained how he saw the ingredients of a real star (Talent, Voice, Stage Charisma & Confidence) in Lara’s performance during Star Academy and that is why he wanted to work with her. Lara explained how remarkable it is to work with a legendry award winning composer, arranger & producer like Jean-Marie Riachi needless to mention the rest of the team.

The CD includes three versions of the song: the original, urban mix and instrumental. On her first CD, Lara wrote: “First and foremost thank you God for blessing me with the most supportive family & friends. Thank you to my parents and sister who have pushed me to be the best I can be. Thank you to my friend and the person who made this all happen Jean-Marie Riachi. To everyone who believed in me, thank you and for everyone who said I couldn't make it ... thank you even more for giving me the push I needed. Finally, thank you to my fans who have supported me through it all... To my angel.. I'm doing this for you ....“Believe and be free” – Lara”

“Mission is You” is now available at all Virgin Megastores across the Middle East.

    yummay,

    I have a life busier than someone like you can ever imagine. But because it doesn't really concern you, so it is non of your business. You would better get a life instead of wondering about others' lives. At least, I don't waste my time in something/somebody that I am not interested in.

    u can push a song or a clip with money to a limit, but without talent will the career go down on the river ;-)
    she started as well with a little scandal concerned the copyright of "her" song, that is needed by a newcomer on the internat. level to get attention at the start , give her the chance proof her talent with her own album, those songs come/written only by her, which will then show where she stands
    if she good enough is, she doesn´t need the help of borrowed plumes
    good luck lara
