Company profile

Artist Management Lydia Canaan is a Lebanese-Swiss mezzo-soprano singer-songwriter, poet, feminist, activist, public speaker, United Nations delegate, and hailed by the media as the first rock star of the Middle-East. Praised by Billboard magazine as having a "four-octave range and perfect pitch", she was dubbed by MTV Europe as "the diva from the Middle-East". She works with famous writers, musicians and producers in Switzerland, the UK, and the U.S. Canaan's international release from London "Beautiful Life" gained her critical acclaim from the British and American music press, comparing her with Cher, Tina Turner, and Celine Dion. "Beautiful Life" was chosen by Nelson Mandela as the theme song for a charity event under his auspices in South Africa. Canaan is the first artist from the Middle-East to have her music videos (filmed in London) on MTV Europe, MTV Asia, MTV Russia, and MTV Arabia. As an artist with a purpose, Canaan was awarded for her humanitarian activism by Ives de San, head of UNDP, Lebanon. Canaan's song "Libnan" is the title song of the advertisement "Rediscover Lebanon", produced and broadcast by CNN to over one billion viewers in 2004, commissioned by the Lebanese Government, to promote Lebanon as a tourist destination. Canaan's song "Never Set You Free" made it to the Semi-Finals of the UK Songwriting Contest 2014. Invited by the United Nations Human Rights Council, Canaan gave a speech at the 25th and 26th Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland on March 17 and June 17, 2014.
