It's not often an Oscar-and-Grammy-winning legend comes to hang out so it's no wonder these young schoolgirls were awestruck when Bollywood hitmaker A.R. Rahman surprised them in Dubai recently.
As if the celebration for the GEMS Our Own English High School's 50th anniversary wasn't impressive enough for their principal, the students and staff soon found out that "Jai Ho!" hitmaker (From the movie Slumdog Millionaire) Rahman had watched the whole thing and was blown away.
"The performance was truly soul stirring! To imagine that 1,000 talented girls, came together to perform one of my favorite compositions, beautifully, is a moment I will cherish forever," he said.
A.R. Rahman is in Dubai for his forthcoming concert, The Journey: A Celebration of Music, taking place at the same venue January 26 and coinciding with Indian Republic Day.
Two lucky Caller Tune customers on phone network, du, will win tickets to the show simply by subscribing to A.R. Rahman's song/shuffle pack caller tune through SMS for AED10 per month.
