My upcoming musical gala in Charlotte 

I'm super excited to be performing in Charlotte, North Carolina for the first time on September 8, 2018. The only other time I visited this city was to catch Armaan Malik live in concert. It's a beautiful city with amazing people - I can't wait to be back there again.

My unique rendition of Mere Rashqe Qamar 

It's now a trend to re-invent old melodies. Out of the many, one that made a comeback in 2017 was Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s Mere Rashqe Qamar in the Ajay Devgan starrer Baadshaho. This song was reinterpreted by Music Director Tanishk Bagchi. Although the movie tanked in the box office, the song gained immense popularity with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's rendition.

I am happy to share that version of Mere Rashqe Qamar, an international collaboration with producer Keethan from U.K and musicians from Chennai…
