There are very few moments of shared joy in Lebanon's collective memory.Ever-glamorous, Sabah will not only be remembered for her powerful vocals and acting skills. In the beginning, Fayad said, Egyptian critics were not very welcoming.It was in Egypt that Jeanette Feghali acquired the stage name Sabah ("Morning"). Sabah, who liked to be referred to as "Sit al-Sittat" (the lady of the ladies) was purportedly married nine times. She starred in 83 films and 27 Lebanese stage plays and her musical repertoire included over 3,000 Lebanese and Egyptian songs. Sabah was not only matchless in performing the Lebanese genre of mawal, the critic said.In 2011 Sabah Media launched a TV drama based on Sabah's life called "Shahroura" – Shahroura (song bird) being one of Sabah's many nicknames – starring Lebanese vocalist Carole Samaha.In the 1980 Egyptian movie "Layla Baka Fiha al-Qamar" (The Night when the Moon Wept), Sabah, aged 53, performed the tune "Saat Saat" (There are times), written by leftist poet Abdel-Rahman al-Abnoudi and composed by Jamal Salama.
