Singer Mary Millben Will Perform At Modi Events
NEW YORK, NY (IANS) – Singer and actor Mary Millben will be performing in New York and Washington during the official state visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the US.
Formally invited by India’s permanent Ambassador to the UN Ruchira Kamobj, Millben will attend the 9th International Day of Yoga at the UN Headquarters with Modi on the North Lawn.
“This visit celebrates the US-India relationship, the world’s two largest democracies and the most important relationship in the world today,” Millben said in a Twitter post.
Millben became the first American artist to perform as an invited cultural ambassador for the US at an event commemorating India’s 75th anniversary of independence on August 15, 2022.
She will also perform at a diaspora reception hosted by US Indian Community Foundation (USICF) at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C. on June 23.
“Performing for this meaningful gathering of the Diaspora in Washington, D.C. to welcome Prime Minister Modi is a great honor. Our common bond in freedom and democracy positions the US-India relationship to be the strongest force on earth for democracy, the best model for unity as a family, and the symbol of freedom for future generations to come,” said Millben.
Her global performance of the Indian National Anthem performed virtually in 2020 for the 74th Anniversary of India’s Independence Day, and the treasured Hindu hymn ‘Om Jai Jagdish Hare’ for the 2020 Diwali observance has been praised and viewed by millions across the US, India, and the world.
