The variety, emotional range and sheer power of his internationally
acclaimed voice have earned Niigaam a huge global following. A Bollywood
icon, his many songs for movies, as well as his award-winning Indi-Pop albums
and other varied musical collaborations, have put the 36-year-old firmly
among India’s most successful and endearing stars.

The Asian Awards, in partnership with Lebara, is a prestigious new global
event saluting achievement and excellence by individuals born in or with
direct family origin from India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan or Bangladesh.

“Guests at this prestigious gala ceremony, including international
business and community leaders, Parliamentarians, movie, music and sport
stars, will witness the honouring of outstanding individuals in eleven
categories – including business, philanthropy, cinema, music and sport,” said

Caroline Jackson Levy, managing director of UBM Awards. “We are so thrilled
Sonu Niigaam will be leading our entertainment. His pre-eminence as a popular
Indian entertainer demonstrates the high quality of this great and
unforgettable evening.”

Winners of The Asian Awards will be selected by independent judges
chaired by Baroness Verma of Leicester, a Government Spokesperson in the
House of Lords. Born in Amritsar in Punjab, India, Lady Verma moved as a
child with her parents to England in 1960. “I am delighted in giving The
