Gulam Nabi Azad to Attend Rafi Tribute

Mumbai, Jul 30 (IANS): Union Health Minister Gulam Nabi Azad will be the chief guest at a function in New Delhi Sunday to pay tribute to legendary singer Mohammed Rafi on his 31st death anniversary.

Shahid Rafi, the singer's son, is organising the evening and has roped in crooner Roop Kumar Rathod to sing some of Rafi's popular songs.

"No one can sing like Rafi Sahab... He had the voice of God in him. We will try and take people back to his songs by singing songs like 'O duniya ke rakhwale', 'Chaudavi ka chaand' and 'Tum jo mil gaye ho'.

"The unique thing about Rafi sahab's voice was his versatility. Imagine the same singer singing 'Sar jo tera chakraye' for 'Johnny Walker' and 'Hum aapki aankhon mein' for Guru Dutt in the same film. There cannot be another Rafi for sure," a statement quoted Rathod as saying.
