Singer-songwriter Ilhame Paris (pronounced “ee-lem,” meaning “inspiration” in

Arabic), will release her debut album Just Wish It in summer 2013. The album

polyglot first discovered her love of the stage at the age of 6. By 13 she was

winning local singing contests and at 19 signed on with Warner Bros Records. But

when the label asked her to “lighten” her approach artistically, the then-
ingénue ended the relationship. She forged forward and has since worked with

the likes of Erykah Badu, The Roots, Dwele, Van Hunt, and Macy Gray.

As a young woman, Ilhame suffered a personal tragedy – one which led her to

gaining nearly 100 pound. The toll it took both mentally and physically nearly

killed her. But in eventually overcoming it, a powerful and life-changing

philosophy was revealed to her: the notion that any negative situation can be

solved by envisioning a solution and then working daily to achieve it


To Ilhame,

“Just Wish It” is more than a mere moniker for her album; the title is a motto by

which the Parisian beauty lives and a movement for which she inspires all of her

fans to strive. In addition to supporting many worthwhile causes in many ways,

Ilhame is also in the process of establishing the “Just Wish It Foundation,” to

which a portion of all of her musical proceed will be donated.

just about the music,” states Ilhame, “it’s also about making a difference in

peoples’ lives. And I’m doing my part to change the world for the better – one
