Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza Premieres on HISTORY™ and HISTORY HD
Premieres Wednesday, 11 January, 10PM on HISTORY™ and HISTORY HD

HISTORY™ will premiere a special biography on 11 January, 2012 on HISTORY™ on Astro Channel 555 and HISTORY HD on Astro Channel 575. This one hour biography, Siti Nurhaliza documents the life of the iconic songstress from her early childhood years through adulthood and her rise to fame.

The multi-talented Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza is a record producer, song writer, television presenter and recently an entrepreneur with her own line of beauty products called SimplySiti. Early July this year, she won her 10th Regional Most Popular Artiste in a row beating other fellow artists from Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore.

From the tender age of nine Siti discovered the meaning of providing for her family after having gone through a series of hardships. Her prowess in the vocal department captured her listeners from the onset and when Siti won the Bintang RTM in 1995, record companies were already bidding for her. Her eponymous debut album – Siti Nurhaliza was released in 1996. Siti only 16 at the time may have appeared naïve, but she was rooted in her principles. Against industry standards and expectations, Siti stood her ground and set principles driven limitations to much criticism. Siti juggled work and school at the beginning of her career and nearly did not compete in a popular awards show, Juara Lagu that eventually turned Siti into an overnight star. After Juara Lagu 1996 there was no stopping her. School was over and career took centre stage. Siti’s rural image and taste drew attention throughout her career. Like in many things Siti overcame it by improving herself and by sticking to her principles.

The documentary explores further the life of this successful songstress through interviews with her family members and personalities from the industry, such as Rozi Abdul Razak – Sister In Law/Manager, Najip Ali, Jennifer Thompson, Zainal Alam kadir, Adnan Abu Hassan, Nurul Shukor, Michael Ong, Christian Alexanda and Bryan Buoro.

“Siti’s story is one that is truly inspirational. She is indeed one of Malaysia’s treasures and we are honored to have her story produced and aired on HISTORY™ and HISTORY HD” said Chris Humphrey, Executive Producer for AETN All Asia Networks.

Siti Nurhaliza will premiere on January 11, 2012 @ 10 pm exclusively on HISTORY™ (Astro Channel 555) and HISTORY HD (Astro Channel 575)
