‘Naam Reh Jayegaa’ is a gift to millions of fans that will always cherish their memories attached to the ‘Nightingale of India’. Her voice truly travels beyond boundaries and has always brought honor to our country. One such incident was shared by a prominent singer, Sonu Nigam on the show when Lata Ji sang at Royal Albert Hall, London. “When Lataji got an opportunity to perform at the Royal Albert Hall, she was a bit confused. It was one of the most prestigious places to perform and it was a matter of pride for any singer to perform at that iconic place. Lataji was the first Indian singer to perform at the Royal Albert Hall. It was an honor not only for her but also for all Indians as well.” said Sonu Nigam.
Sonu Nigam and Javed Ali even shared an incident that shows why Latadi was, is and I will always be a legend.
“There was a huge concert at Royal Albert Hall in London where Lataji was supposed to perform and Dilip saab was supposed to introduce her. As soon as Dilip saab introduce her lataji came on stage without slippers. When dilip kumar saw this, he told Lataji that this is England, its cold u may get sick but lataji refused and said i never sing a song wearing slippers as for me its a prayer.” said Javed Ali and Sonu Nigam
