Blessed is the debut album by Lebanese-German singer Fady Maalouf. Maalouf was a contestant in 2008 of Deutschland sucht den Superstar, the German version of Pop Idol.

Even though Fady Maalouf did not win the title, his extraordinary voice and his charming personality had, by then, won him the hearts of an enormous fan base, which then, in an unprecedented effort, bombarded Sony BMG with letters, mails and phone calls, all demanding the same - the release of Fady Maalouf’s title "Blessed", performed by him during the final show.

After a contract with Columbia, a subsidiary of Sony BMG Music Entertainment the single "Blessed" was released on 4 July 2008 as a single and went straight to no. 2 in the German single charts.[1] The same titled album, Blessed including 14 tracks, saw the light on 25 July 2008, and went as well straight to no. 2 in the German album charts.[2]

These simultaneous single and album charts positions made Maalouf the most successful DSDS finalist of all time.
