War with neighboring Iraq had a negative impact on the Iranian movie and music industry. The Forouhar family stayed in Teheran until deciding to emigrate from the country.

Move to the United States

In 1988 Forouhar and her family moved to the United States. That same year, she released "Makhmal-e-Naz" and in 1989 "Hedieh" ("The Gift"), and the song "Ey Dil" ("Oh My Heart") became very popular.

Leila's songs are popular in countries including Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Iraq, Armenia and the United States. She has released more than 20 albums. Her album "Planet of Harmony" included songs in English, Italian, Greek, Arabic, Hebrew, Afghani, Armenian, Turkish and Kurdish.

In August 2004 Leila married Los Angeles-based Iranian-American businessman Esi Nabi. Forouhar's nephew is American Muslim reformer Reza Aslan.

In 2006 Leila Forouhar sang in three concerts in Tajikistan in a commemoration of Aryan civilization.

In March 2010 she sang at an international celebration of the festival of Nowruz at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.

Leila covered Dolly Parton's Jolene on her 1976 album called Do Parande (The Two Birds, Persian: دو پرنده‎‎).
