Googoosh has Rare Performance in Atlanta August 27th:
The name Googoosh might not sound familiar, but to thousands of fans, she is their music idol. Googoosh, an Iranian singer and actress, earned the title of most iconic pop singer to her fans, due to her contributions to the Persian music scene. Googoosh left Iran because females were forbidden to perform. Her first live concert away from her homeland was in the year 2000, 21 years of going silent with her singing. In 2015 Googoosh released her 7th album titled Akse Khosoosi (Private Portrait). Googoosh tours sporadically and fans have been begging for her to come to Atlanta, and on August 27th, right here at the Cobb Energy Center. Fans, dressed to the nines, swarmed to come see this one in a lifetime performance from the icon herself. She sounded and looked beautiful, and like any great artist, the audience clung to every word she sang.
