Zaher achieved success upon releasing both English and Arab language singles, and has a still-growing legion of influential supporters. Mary J. Blige said of his talent, “If anyone can unite people with their music, it is Zaher. The love and the sweetness you hear is real. It’s authentic.”
As a director, Zaher has honed his craft by working on numerous projects, including his short film “War Within.” This film tells the story of a gay Muslim man’s struggle to reconcile his sexuality with his faith, explores his longing for acceptance from his family, and ultimately reveals his personal journey to love and accept himself. It stands as a proud document for Zaher’s continuing and undoubted devotion to creating art that crosses boundaries and brings people together.
