May sings with her guitar, her heart and the beautiful voice with which she has been blessed." Zaki Nassif

May's singing comes from the heart and has the ability to go straight to the heart." Fareed Abou El Kheir

May has a refined ear. She is Lebanese surrounded by Lebanese people, and yet she is creating her own style. When you are serious, gifted and ambitious, you are complete." Joseph Ichkanian

"When I sing, whether alone or in front of a crowd, I forget about everything around me and just let my heart do the reaching out through the melody and meaning I so wish to convey. It is like a meditation for me, and it gives me deep satisfaction and gratitude to see that other people actually find it as satisfactory for them to hear me sing" May Nasr

May Nasr received her Bachelor of Arts and Science (Human Development and Social Work) from Beirut University College in 1987. Beside being a vocalist and musical performer, she works in the field of micro-finance. Since the mid 1990s she has been performing regularly in major festivals and musical venues in Europe and the Arab World. She has also participated in performances with many musical groups and ensembles.

Her last appearance at Alwan was in June, 2008
