Sonu Nigam, one of India's finest singers, has over the years collaborated and sung with many musicians, and each of them have been close to him but only a few have held a special place in his heart. One such collaboration was with the 6 pack band, India's first transgender band , the renowned singer recorded Rab de band. The song became a hit overnight and received lots of love from fans and listeners.


It came as no surprise then that Sonu was extremely pleased when he received a call recently from composer/director Shamir Tondon who informed him about 6 pack band winning the coveted Cannes Grand Prix Glass lion award at the Cannes Lions Festival.

A source close to the singer says that the collaboration is one of its kind and an iconic one, "Sonu is very happy that the 6 pack band is now getting world recognition. He has always been keen on doing something for the transgender community and even wanted to start a small scale industry some years ago in order to increase employment opportunities for them. 'Rab de Bande' was an opportunity Sonu couldn't refuse and he's extremely happy that the band has won the Cannes Grand Prix Glass lion award."

Sonu also lauded the efforts of all those who made 6 pack band possible by saying that it needs a lot of courage and conviction to execute something path breaking, "It is really commendable and heartening to see that the band is doing so well at these prestigious award functions. My heartiest congratulations to the entire team that made this happen." Quiz him about collaboration, "I would love to" he smiles and signs off.
