Rahat Fateh ali Khan will perform at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert Malala

Legendary singer and composer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan will perform at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert, which will be held at the Oslo Spektrum Arena on December 11.`
This is the second time a Pakistani will be performing at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert. Junoon previously performed at the event in 2007.
The concert and ceremony, to be hosted by Queen Latifah, will honour India’s Kailash Satyarthi and Pakistan’s very own and 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 gathers a host and selection of talented artists from around the world to pay tribute to the year’s laureate. The resulting show is a virtual melting pot of melodies ranging in genre from classical to rap.
Other artists who will be performing this year include prolific singer Steven Tyler, British soul singer Laura Mvula, Norway’s Gabrielle and the inspirational Girls of The World. There will also be a dazzling Bollywood number to entertain audiences.
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is the nephew of iconic Pakistani qawwali singer, the late Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. In addition to qawwali, Rahat also performs ghazals, and is immensely popular as a Bollywood and Lollywood playback singer.
According to local media, the renowned singer said he felt honoured to be representing Pakistan overseas: “Pakistan is not only a nuclear power, but we also know how to make a place in people’s hearts with our melodious music.”
Correction: it was earlier incorrectly reported that Rahat Fateh Ali Khan would be the first Pakistani to perform at the ceremony, however, Junoon had previously performed at the event in 2007. The error is regretted.
