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), mulek al-ehsas (Arabic:ملك الاحساس) King of emotions , and al-general (Arabic: الجنرال) (The General). Though Khalid didn't want to be famous and retired for a month, but peer's and artist pressured him to step back on the decision.

Some of his top songs are ahat (Arabic:اهات) ,sarihini (Arabic: صارحيني), sudiqini (Arabic: صدقيني), khuberooh (Arabic: خبروه), tedhkar (Arabic :تذكار), and al-ata (Arabic العطا) and a lot more. He released an album Rouh Rouhey (Arabic: روح روحي ‎‎) (Soul of my Soul) in 2008. It contains 8 songs which looked like his last album because the death of his friend Prince Sultan-Bin-Abdulazeez. At the last moment he changed his mind and continued his career, Khalideat 2010 (Arabic:خالديات), Thani 2013 (Arabic:ثاني), La Yrooh Balk 2014 (Arabic:لا يروح بالك) Al Hob Alkabeer 2016 (Arabic:الحب الكبير).
