As revealed at the UK press Conference earlier this month, A R Rahman has accepted U.S RnB Singer Ushers request to collaborate in an un-named Bollywood movie. The movie is set to be an animation movie which is still in the making. Usher has lent his vocals for one of the soundtracks.
Rahman embraced Hollywood from a very early age, having grown up watching Hollywood films and listening to Michael Jackson and music composer John Williams, he believes it is very important for Indians to have a good sense of belonging to be able to contribute to the rest of the world.
What better way to do this then to represent themselves through their voice, having highly talented musicians such as Zakhir Hussain and Ravi Shankar who are both well known around the world for their extraordinary musical ability, Rahman still believed their wasn't a voice that represented India unlike the rest of the world.
To fulfil the gap in the music industry, Rahman is set on his mission to bring something spectacular for the UK audiences.
Rahman said: 'I want to see leaders create something in the world'.
Rahman has toured the world spreading his music every two years constantly from 1996 onwards. He is ready to continue his world tour, which will take his journey to the US on June 11th 2010 and is rapturous about touring the UK in July.
The Lebara Jai Ho - A R Rahman Journey Home World Tour 2010 kicks of on the 23rd - 25th July 2010 and is sponsored by the Leading international provider of high quality, low-cost telecommunications services Lebara Mobile.
