ERBIL-Hewlêr, Kurdistan region 'Iraq',— Helly Luv, a U.S.-based Kurdish singer has released a new song called “Risk It All”. The video clip was partially filmed on rooftops and streets across Erbil and the historical citadel even makes an appearance in it.

Helly Luv, the performing name of Helen Abdulla, is of Kurdish origins and was born in 1988 towards the end of the Iran-Iraq War. Helly Luv and her family escaped death by first fleeing to Turkey. From there they went to Finland, later settling in the United States.

“Risk It All” was released on February 3 and quickly received thousands of YouTube hits. The video carries the message that Kurdish women can do anything and that they should believe in themselves.

The video portrays Helly Luv’s love for her homeland, and she even dons traditional Kurdish men’s clothing in some scenes.

Helly Luv says she featured lions in the video because she loves animals. She has previously established an animal rights organization and has plans to open a branch in Kurdistan in the near future.

According to Helly Luv, growing up in Finland was not easy because she was bullied for not looking like everyone else. This treatment pushed her to find an outlet through which she could channel her anger and depression.

Helly Luv first took an interest in singing when she joined a neighborhood choir and then broadened her interests by learning to play the piano. Following that, she started taking drama classes, which eventually allowed her to feel more accepted.

Eventually, dancing became her primary focus and afforded her an opportunity to compete in the Dance Championships. Soon after, she signed a contract with Nike Woman in Finland.

Helly Luv says she came to Los Angeles, California, believing in the “American Dream,” yet nothing went as planned.

She notes it was difficult for her to find people that would take her seriously, but nonetheless she continued to persevere, even though the life she had dreams of achieving was not taking shape.

Helly Luv recently signed on with G2 Music Group. Her upcoming album, produced by Gawain “G2” Bracy II, will have a world dance sound to it and is also titled “Risk It All”.
