    Pascale Machaalani is back, now that the maternity leave she spent with her baby is over. She will go back to her activities through presenting many songs and concerts. She will record songs and shoot music videos. She will certainly be working with great happiness and will provide all that is beautiful and wonderful. She made her audience and fans used to her presenting all that is beautiful, wonderful and excellent. Also, she has always stood out among her peers. Now, the singing arena is crowded with many female artists and singers who present much work, even after many of them gave birth, such as the artists Nancy, Asala, Shereen, Ahlam, Dana, Amal Hagazy, Dominique, Sereen Abdel Nour, Boshra and many others. As such, may all the mothers and all those who were pregnant and then gave birth be successful. We hope to see good, excellent and successful work that shows communication with the movement of arts and singing on the level of the Arab world where many Arab artists are present. Therefore, we hope the singer Pascale Machaalani will continue with all the work she presented and is still presenting through good and successful choice of music and lyrics, and a beautiful and excellent performance that reflects Pascale Machaalani’s image on the singing arena, which is crowded with Arab female singers who continuously work to achieve success, stardom and excellence.

    The artist Pascale Machaalani should exert a lot of efforts to make up for all the time during which she was away from the Arab singing scene. She should present what is best and most beautiful and come back to compete with the rest of the female singers without allowing her work to get in her way as a mother. She should balance the two so that there would not be any errors or negligence in any of the two aspects. Certainly, this is important for the remaining female artists and singers, who have children for the first, second or third time. This certainly needs a lot of efforts and continuous work, because some of the female artists have failed in one aspect, either art or motherhood. As such, it is a tiresome and exhausting job. Therefore, there should be balance and correct choices and great work, so that the Lebanese singer Pascale Machaalani could have motherhood and could come back to her stardom in the singing world once more.
