"Performing at the Buckingham Palace was an amazing experience," gushes Baby Doll singer Kanika Kapoor, who was invited by Prince Charles for the 10th anniversary celebration of the British Asian Trust on Tuesday. The singer performed at the royal address along with British music producer, Naughty Boy. With this feat, Kapoor becomes the only Indian artiste to have performed at the Buckingham Palace.
Kapoor tells mid-day that Boy and she specially curated a set that comprised 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," says Kapoor.
She says that the highlight of the event was when she dedicated the love ballad, Kabhi Kabhi Mere Dil Mein [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."
