Iranian actor, singer and human rights activist Zia Atabay had his first hit as a pop singer in Iran at the age of 18 and went on to record several hit albums. He also worked as an A&R manager for CBS Records in Iran, but lost his job in 1979 when Islamic revolutionaries took over the offices. He fled Iran in 1980, living in Europe before moving to Los Angeles in 1986. I’m a Believer was written by Neil Diamond and scored a number one hit for The Monkees in 1966.
