An Iranian Performer Amazes Audiences Again After Some Time Spent Off the Road
The Walt Disney Theater features subtle design elements take you back to the classical outdoor theaters of ancient Greece while bringing the whole community together for exciting entertainment, like when Faegheh Atashin performs live on Saturday, November 17th!
Faegheh Atashin also known by her stage name Googoosh, is an Iranian singer and actress of Iranian Azerbaijani origin. She is known for her contributions to Iranian pop music, but also starred in a variety of movies from the 1950s to the 1970s. Her overall impact and contributions to Persian and Azerbaijani pop-music earned her the title of the most iconic female pop-singer from those regions. She has recorded songs in Persian, Azerbaijani, Turkish, Arabic, English, French, Tajiki, Italian and in Spanish.
Following a 21-year performing ban imposed by the conservative government of Iran, Googoosh finally left the country in 2000 to undertake a world tour, re-establishing her status as the most successful Iranian artist of all time. She performed sell-out concerts in prestigious venues such as Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Staple Centre in Los Angeles, Madison Square Gardens in New York, Globen Arena in Stockholm and The SSE Arena, Wembley in London amongst many others.
The phenomenal success of these concerts was testament not only to her lasting quality as an artist, but a tribute to generations of Iranians who, despite over two decades of silence, demonstrated their continuing love and loyalty to an enduring star of a bygone era. In turn, she rewarded their devotion with proof that she continued to remain relevant to today’s audiences, showing that she is a star not only of the past, but of the present and the future.
Googoosh tours sporadically, making occasional concert stops all over the globe, and now, you can see her live at the Walt Disney Theatre on Saturday, November 17th.
College Park Towers, the premier apartments in Orlando, Florida, is inviting friends and neighbors to attend this unforgettable event!
