Ameerah – a name that breathes royalty. The Arabic word for “princess” perfectly reflects pop singer Ameerah’s Tunisian, Algerian and Belgian roots. Her new single The Sound Of Missing You is a catchy, melodic dance track with influences of urban and pop. It’s one of those songs you won’t be able to get out of your head for a long time.
The Sound Of Missing You is the result of a collaboration of Ameerah with the renowned Swedish production team Airborn, a.k.a. Didrik and Sebastian Thott; the same team that is responsible for numerous hits for Celine Dion, Westlife and Lindsay Lohan, to name a few. It’s a song about the end of a relationship. Ameerah: “It’s about missing somebody so much that you can’t shake off the feeling. It’s like sound: it’s always there.”
For the last two years, Ameerah has travelled the world to work with the crème de la crème of international producers, such as Red One (Akon, Lady Gaga), Jorgen Elofsson (Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson), Airborn and Souldiggaz (Beyoncé, Missy Elliott). She divided her time between her home in Belgium, Sweden (the Mecca of pop music) and the U.S.A. (the 1 country of urban music) in order to develop her talent and skills. “When I started co-writing with other people, I didn’t know who I was musically. It took a while to discover my own sound. Writing with internationally acclaimed producers has helped me find my strengths and musical preferences. These people believe in my talent and they have given me plenty of room to grow.” Having spent numerous hours in music studios all over the world, Ameerah has become a well-respected songwriter herself, who is often invited to co-write with other artists and producers.
Music has always been the focus of Ameerah’s life. Her musical skills emerged at a very young age. As a three-year-old, she started to sing along to Walt Disney songs, did her first big performance at the age of six and has never stopped since. She went to music school and took acting classes and dance lessons. At the age of fourteen, she won a free-stage competition. She went on to become one of the most popular participants of the Belgian version of Idols 2003, got signed to a Belgian record label at twenty and released two successful singles. After that collaboration ended because of musical differences, Ameerah signed a deal with Highclazz Records.
Ameerah has always been an ambitious girl and her hard work is paying off. “People said I was a fool when I decided to go to the US and Sweden to establish my career. But I just felt I should give it a try and went for it.” With so many fruitful songwriting sessions on her name, a great new single and her everlasting determination to succeed , Ameerah became a true Major internationally successful pop princess and her journey has only just begun.
