I am proud of her as an Iranian artist who knows other Iranian musicians.

Shoosh, thank you for sharing, She is very talented.

Lets support our talaented iranians, buy their CD's, go to their concerts. Their talent is a window for the world to see and know Iranians better.

The world should wake up and look at Iranians with a diffrent eye. The stone aged Islamists in Iran can fill their pockets with all the oil money with the help of super powers of the world, but Tara's of Iran are there to show the world that although our beloved country is ripped apart because of it's wealth, history, and civilization, we are alive and will work hard toward the democracy for our Country. No matter where we are, we'll never stop loving Iran.

Thank you Tara, I am so proud of you and other accomplished Iranians.
