Sona Mohapatra

Mumbai, June 8 : Singer Sona Mohapatra released her new song “Nit khair manga”, a reworked rendition of the traditional Sufi qawwali that is predominantly performed by male singers.

In the past, the song has been widely performed and recorded by the late Sufi legend, Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

Talking about the song, Sona said: “I am so happy to finally present my recorded version of ”Nit khair manga” to the world. I have performed this classic on stage for a decade as an ode to Nusrat saab and his artistry but my interpretation is very different and from a feminine perspective. As an artiste, I believe in taking a stand for what is right and also spreading positivity. The world really needs it at the moment, more than ever before. I hope this release helps carry the message of unity and love above all.”

Sona”s version has a funk-fusion rendition of the same in her documentary film “Shut Up Sona”, which is being screened at the documentary festival Hot Docs Toronto in North America.

Pop star Justin Bieber is looking back at the time when he was arrested in 2014, and shared that he is not proud of that moment in his life.

In 2014, the singer, who was 19 at the time, was arrested on the suspicion of drinking under influence, resisting arrest and sitting behind the wheel without a valid license.

Now, the 26-year-old pop superstar took to Instagram late on Saturday to look back on getting arrested in 2014.

“7 years ago today I was arrested, not my finest hour. Not proud of where I was at in my life. I was hurting, unhappy, confused, angry, mislead, misunderstood and angry at god,” Bieber wrote alongside a photo of himself in handcuffs.

“I also wore too much leather for someone in Miami,” he joked, before delving into how he has become a better person.

“All this to say God has brought me a long way,” Bieber said.

“From then til now I do realise something.. God was as close to me then as he is right now. My encouragement to you is to alet your past be a reminder of how far god has brought you. Don’t allow shame to ruin your “today” let the forgiveness of Jesus take over and watch your life blossom into all that God has designed you to be,” he added in the post.
