had an extraordinary capacity to learn from adversity.
SORAYA: A Life of Music, a Legacy of Hope is her memoir and
her way to continue her mission. Soraya’s editors chose to break
her story into three distinct sections.
Soraya’s family history and her childhood, through
her first album
Soraya’s rise to fame, her cancer diagnosis, her comeback
and the commitment to her mission
The final 18 months of Soraya’s life, and her race
to make a lasting difference
Each of these three sections includes original autobiographical chapters
penned by Soraya, as well as Memories, written by those who knew her
best. Through the stories and photographs featured in the Memories
pages, the public can learn what the humble Soraya would never say
herself: in the final years of her life, she had become a world-class
humanitarian and one of the greatest songwriters of her generation.
