NEW DEHLI: Singer-composer Adnan Sami will be honoured with an Award of Recognition in Canada for his contribution in the field of arts, culture and music. He feels “blessed”.

He will receive the award on March 21 by the speaker at the Legislature at Queen’s Park, the Ontario Parliament, Canada.

A special reception for him will also be organised by Shafiq Qaadri, member of provincial parliament, Etobicoke North, and he will be given a guided tour on the floors of the parliament.

“I bow my head in humility for receiving this honour from such an esteemed house,” Adnan said in a statement.

Adnan admits that having the ability to make people smile through his music, is what makes him really happy.

“God has blessed me with the in-born talent for which I pour my heart out in the form of music. I can never stop thanking God because my music influences people in their respective lives,” he added. “If my life and music brings a smile or makes a difference in any individual’s life, then that is nothing more to me than a gift from God.”

Adnan, who recently launched his new album Press Play, will also take to the stage at the Roy Thomson Hall at Toronto, Canada, for a performance on March 22.

As a classical pianist, he has rendered solo performances before heads of state. He also carved a niche for himself as a successful Indi-pop artist with songs like Tera Chehra and Lift Kara De.
