Last October Rahat Fateh Ali Khan was in Germany for a series of Concerts promoting the Sufi Music Legacy of Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. In an interview with Waslat Hasrat-Nazimi Rahat conveyed his plans about promoting peace through Sufi Music on the paths of his Uncle.
On being asked about his favourite singers he disclosed that he was a big fan of Michel Jackson, who was himself a big fan of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
You might be knowing that MJ himself expressed his desire to perform with NFAK many times, They were also supposed to perform in a World-Wide series of concerts (Along with Madonna) welcoming the New Millennium. The idea of this trio was proposed by Madonna herself.
