Sikhs in the Spotlight

This past week I came across two videos that are just… cool. The videos are not necessarily Sikhi-related but they show everyday Sikhs in their element. This first video was taken at a U2 concert where a lucky fan [Amp Bains] was invited onstage to sing “Sunday Bloody Sunday” with Bono. So lucky.

In this second video Shakira performs her new song Gypsy. One of her musicians in this video is Shamsher Singh, a Sikh from Florida (hat tip: Sikh Swim). The video can be viewed here.

    After 9/11, Bono said at Madison Square Garden before playing Sunday Bloody Sunday, "This is your song now." Hence the US flag. :) I hat it at Giants Stadium too, but I don't think he saw it.
