Lebanese singer Elissa to retire

 Renowned Lebanese singer Elissa, 45, revealed that her next album will also be her last.

On her twitter account, Elissa broke the news to her fanbase with a heavy heart: “I am preparing this new album with a lot of love and passion. The reason is that it will be the last one in my career. I am announcing this with a heavy heart but with a lot of conviction because I can t work in a field that is similar to mafias. I can t be productive anymore.”

At the end of the video, Elissa said “I ve recovered. I ve beaten the illness, and I won. Early detection of breast cancer can save your life. Don t ignore it, face it. Do it not only for yourself, but for your loved ones.”
 
Elissa s musical career began in 1992, when she won the silver medal in Studio El Fan music competition according to her Facebook official page.
 
In 2002, she won the Murex d Or award for Best Female Artist. In 2010, she was garnered the Best Arab Female Artist in the Jordan Music Awards and the Big Apple Music Award for the Best Female Artist in the Middle East.
