Best selling Egyptian singer

Here is a music clip of a very famous Egyptian singer, who is now "one of the highest selling Middle Eastern artists of all time" (Wikipedia).

I didn't chose one of his latest music videos. Instead, I have selected one that features many scenes from the heart of Egypt, mainly from the Nile river and Upper (southern) Egypt. I intend for this post to be the start of posting about and introducing Egyptian music to non-Arabs. The reason I say non-Arabs and not "non-Egyptians" is that Egyptian art-especially music, cinema and television-is very well known all over the Arab World. This is the main reason why the Egyptian dialect of the spoken Arabic is the most widely understood among all Arabs.

Here is the music video of the song Awedony, by Amr Diab.
