Event – November 15 | Salim-Sulaiman Live 2014 Tour – North America: Atlanta Performance to Benefit Various Causes & Charities

Salim and Sulaiman arrived earlier this evening in Atlanta, Georgia ahead of their show this weekend. With sold out performances in virtually every center – Vancouver, San Jose, Calgary and Toronto, the duo embark on the next leg of their North American tour zig-zagging across five US cities.

But performance is not the only thing that has people talking. The duo are providing an opportunity for the local talent in the jamat to perform with them, who are rising stars in their own right. They are also conducting workshops for budding musicians and artists. With net proceeds benefiting AKF projects and other causes and charities, providing opportunities to inspire the next generation of artists has not gone unnoticed.

Calgary’s Mayor, Naheed Nenshi recognized their efforts and leadership by “White Hatting” Salim, Sulaiman and the team.

In Toronto, Canada’s Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, Chris Alexander expressed special appreciation with a personalized Thank You letter and tweeted Canada loves Salim and Sulaiman.

The accolades keep coming with all these great performances and associated inspiring and good works (see example below).
