Nazanin Afshin-Jam Releases Debut Album "Someday" Dedicated to Iranian Freedom
Nazanin is the voice for the voiceless…
Iran Press News (Farsi) posted this amazing video by the beautiful former Miss World Canada Nazanin Afshin-Jam.
Born in Tehran during the turmoil of the Iranian Revolution in 1979, Nazanin’s family was forced to leave all their worldly possessions behind and flee to freedom, when her father had been jailed and tortured by the Revolutionary Guard under the new regime. Awaiting execution, it was the family’s escape to Europe that saved them from political persecution. Faced with adversity so early in life, the revolution impacted her core.
Today Nazanin sings about a New Revolution for Iran- her homeland.
The visuals are extraordinary and include scenes from the the mullah’s revolution starting in 1978 and pictures from other historic freedom revolutions since that time.
Nazanin is truly becoming a powerful voice for the imminent revolution in Iran:
Nazanin Afshin-Jam is also an activist for those persecuted under the current regime in control of Iran. Nazanin helped rescue a young Iranian from her death sentence by the mullahs earlier this year:
Nazanin was opposed to the death penalty being applied to 18-year-old namesake Nazanin Mahabad Fatehi, who had been sentenced to hang for stabbing one of three men who tried to rape her and her niece in Karaj in March 2005. She started a campaign to help save the life of this minor including a petition which attracted more than 350,000 signatures worldwide. (Number of signatures gathered to date). She has also dedicated her song “Someday the Revolution song” -one of the 12 songs on her album that was released last week to Nazanin Fatehi and the other oppressed youth of Iran.
“Hopefully I will get to send – or better yet hand deliver- the song to her.” said Nazanin Afshin-Jam in an interview. Eventually, Nazanin Fatehi was found innocent and was released on January 31, 2007.
Nazanin’s debut album includes the song “Someday” -in Farsi.
Update: (May 11) HotAir has a clip of Nazanin on O’Reilly from tonight talking about child executions.
