It was her production company that co-produced the George Lopez that became very popular on ABC back in day.

Arc Angels
In Concert
@713 Music Hall  

 Friday 1/21/2022 8:00 PM

The concert features the blues rock band known for their hits “Living In A Dream”, “Sent By Angels”, or “Too Many Ways to Fall”.

They're most popular hit was “Living In A Dream”.

(From amazon.com) Arc Angels is one of those bands I have a love & hate relationship with. I absolutely love their one and only album they released in the early 90's, but hate the fact they split up and never collaborated to make more fantastic music. "Living in a Dream" is live album that showcases the group's chemistry and balanced interpretation of the blues/rock genre. New tracks are also thrown in to add some freshness.

Googoosh is one of Iran’s most enduring and famous entertainers. Born Faegheh Atashin in Tehran (Iran) in 1950, Googoosh grew up with the support of her entertainer father. Her artistic aspirations were supported by her father so much so that she was encouraged to perform at some of Tehran’s largest cafes and bars from the age of 3. Throughout the decades, she played in successful blockbuster movies such as Hope and Fear (1960) and The Runaway Angel (1961), a film by George Obadiah.

Throughout her journey she was discovered by Iranian composers and very shortly after that, due to her unique voice and style, she established herself as a pop culture icon in the Iranian music industry. Her first ever single in 1968 was the highest selling record in Iranian history. She soon became the most expensive performing and recording artist in Iran, releasing 150 records between 1968 to 1979.
