Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is all set to become the second Pakistani to perform at the upcoming Nobel Peace Prize Concert on December 11. Junoon performed at the concert earlier, according to Dawn.com.
The concert, which will be held at the Oslo Spektrum Arena, is set to be hosted by Queen Latifah and will honour India's Kailash Satyarthi and the youngest-ever recipient of the Nobel Peace prize, Malala Yousafzai, for the work they have done to promote children's rights, particularly education.
Each year the Nobel Peace Prize Concert brings together talented artists from across the globe to pay tribute to the year’s laureates. An amalgamation of sounds from all over the world, it is a veritable melting pot of symphonies.
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is the nephew of iconic Pakistani qawwali singer, the late Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Other than for qawwali, he is also immensely popular for singing playback in Bollywood.
Other artists who will be performing this year include Steven Tyler, British soul singer Laura Mvula, Norway's Gabrielle and the inspirational Girls of The World.
