Khalid Abdulrahman AdDosari (Arabic: خالد عبدالرحمن الدوسري ‎) (born April 22, 1965 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) is a Saudi singer, musician, and songwriter.[1][2][3] He is nicknamed "makhawi al-layl" (مخاوي الليل) which means the friend of night. He regarded the night as his close friend because he used to stay up late writing poems in the night silence. He is one of the region’s most popular vocalists[citation needed] alongside Mohammed Abdu, Abdul Majid Abdullah and Rashed Al-Majed. Unlike most singers, he gained fame[citation needed] from his first album, sarihini (Arabic: صارحيني) (tell me the truth), which was the beginning of a series of successful albums.[citation needed] He gained a large number of fans in a short period of time.[citation needed] So, he successfully competed with popular singers in the Arab world.[citation needed] He got a number of nicknames like mulek alfun (Arabic: مللك الفن) (king of music), and al-general (Arabic: الجنرال) (The General).

He started singing in 1987. Some of his top songs are ahat (Arabic: آهات), sarihini (Arabic صارحيني), sudiqini (Arabic صدقيني), khuberooh (خبروه), tedhkar (Arabic تذكار), and al-ata (Arabic العطا). He released his last album Rouh Rouhey (Arabic: روح روحي ‎) (Soul of my Soul) in 2008. It contains 8 songs.
