Singer Kanika Kapoor who topped the charts with her song Baby Doll among other chart-topping tracks was recently invited by Prince Charles for the 10th anniversary celebration of the British Asian Trust.
Mid-Day reveals that the singer performed at Buckingham Palace along with British music producer, Naughty Boy. With this act, Kapoor becomes the only Indian artist to have performed at the royal address. “Performing at the Buckingham Palace was an amazing experience,” gushed Kapoor.
Speaking to the publication, she shared that Naughty Boy and herself specially created a set that included a mix of Sufi and English music. “This was the first time such an event was held there. Performing Sufi and popular English tracks with DJ Naughty Boy was fun. As an ambassador of the British Asian Trust, I felt proud to represent Indian music on a global platform,” said Kapoor.
Kapoor shared that the highlight of the event was when she dedicated the song Kabhi Kabhi Mere Dil Mein from the film ‘Kabhi Kabhie’ (1976) to Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall. “We performed songs that are popular in the UK. I started the recital with Lambi Judai and went on to sing my hit number, Jugni. We also performed Naughty Boy’s latest song with Beyoncé, Running. The act ended with a track for the Duke and Duchess, Kabhi Kabhi Mere Dil Mein.”
