In her childhood, she used to sing at school concerts and to neighbors and friends in her family’s simple house in Beirut. At one of the school concerts, Mohammed Fleyfel became impressed by her voice and encouraged her to join the Lebanese Conservatoire. After that, she was appointed a chorus singer at a radio station in Beirut. Halim El-Roumi discovered her talent and gave her the name Fayrouz. Later, she met Rahbani Brothers (الأخوان رحباني) who worked with her extensively. They wrote and composed hundreds of songs an many plays and movies for her, and in 1955 she got married to Assi Rahbai.
