A. R. Rahman’s six-year old son sings for Hollywood movie

Nevada (US): Oscar winner musician A. R. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire) will deliver a free concert in Sydney (Australia) to make a “statement of peace” in view of recent racial attacks on Indian students in Australia.


He reportedly said that this concert, to be held at Parramatta Park on January 16, was an attempt to “reunite culturally and spiritually” in view of the recent bad vibe. He hopes that it creates a “bridge of understanding and love” and breaks down “cultural misunderstandings”. Premier Nathan Rees of New South Wales has congratulated Rahman for this offer.


Prominent Australian entertainers should respond with a similar gesture of a free concert in a major city of India, said Indian American leader Rajan Zed.


Rahman, who has reportedly recorded sales of over 300 million, was called “Mozart of Madras'''' by Time magazine. Pop icon Michael Jackson reportedly approached him before his death to partner on a peace anthem on the lines of “We are the World”. Rahman sees music as a “way to connect to spirituality and embrace it”.
