"When I sing, whether alone or in front of a crowd, I forget about everything around me and just let my heart do the reaching out through the melody and meaning I so wish to convey. It is like a meditation for me, and it gives me deep satisfaction and gratitude to see that other people actually find it as satisfactory for them to hear me sing." - May Nasr

“..May’s singing pours out a huge flow of humanitarian feelings and emotions for our never-ending struggles for peace in the Middle East, the most important of which are true patriotism and love for the land, friendship and hope. [Her] life style and her daily life both as a musician and an independent consultant in microfinance training services for programs aimed at improving poor people’s lives, are embedded in her songs on her CD. One is unable to separate between the songs she sings and her daily way of living. She sings everywhere, amongst university students, town and city halls, all in her usual simple style carrying her guitar, her only shield and instrument, with no false pretenses.. Her only aim and concern is to express her thoughts, feelings and beliefs to the widest range of people through her voice and guitar.” - Sahar Taha – Iraqi Musician and Columnist at Al Mustakbal Newspaper – Beirut
