Hatem (born Hatem Nabil Fahmy on 26th of February) was born in Saudi Arabia, Jeddah. He spent almost all his childhood in Saudi Arabia. He started singing when he was 12 years old on his school's stage; his first song was George Michel 's song, Careless whisper. His friends, family & teachers were the ones who encouraged him the most & believed in his voice. He went back to Egypt when he was 14 years old & kept singing only at school or with friends, he loved all types of music but he never thought that he'll take singing as a career.
