One of the best Sufi singers of Pakistan Rahat Fateh Ali Khan will be honored by the Oxford University, awarding him an honorary degree for his amazing work as a devotional artist as well as a playback singer.
The annual ceremony of Oxford University named Encaenia will take place on 26 June where the singer will receive an honorary degree from the university along with 8 other people.
He began his training at the age of seven under his uncle Ustaad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan who is also known as the “Emperor of Qawwali.”
He released more than fifty music albums and has conducted high profile concerts across the world, gaining a huge fan following. He has also sung hundreds of songs for TV serials in Pakistan and lent his voice for many Bollywood and Pakistani films during his career.
Last year, Oxford University named a rehearsal hall after him to honor his work by making him the first South Asian to receive an honor like this.
