A man of few words Singh introduced his program very simply "We will have two parts in this program. One will be the first half and the other the second half". With great ease he started singing and immediately cast a spell over th audience.
He opened with his ever famous number "Chiti na koyi sandesh , na jane woh kaun sa desh jahan tum chale gaye" and took everyone down on memory lane. From there on he presented many popular numbers including Kagaz ki Kashti, Gumsum Ye Jahan Hai, Hoshwalo ko khabar, Huzoor aapka bhi ahtraam karta chaloon,Tumko dekha to yeh khayal and many others. He ended the program with many of his famous Punjabi numbers and had the audience clapping the rhythms
As he ended the concert the audience hoped that indeed this would not be his Farewell Tour and that he would return to Boston.
Spotlight entertainment plans to bring many other wonderful shows to Boston. We will keep you abreast of them when they happen.
