Afghan Singer's Star is rising
Posted by Staff
With a scarf loosely covering a fancy television hairstyle, Latifa Azizi raised her arms in victory after surviving another elimination round on the hit talent show, "Afghan Star".

But the victory pales into insignificance when compared with the larger battle 17-year-old Azizi is fighting - to pursue her dream of becoming a famous singer despite the censure of ultra-conservative Afghan society.

"Whether I win or lose, my family can't go back home, it's too dangerous," Azizi, from the relatively liberal northern capital of Mazar-e-Sharif, told Reuters in the show's dressing room. Facebook Fark Furl
