A new statement by Darius Van Arman, founder of the Secretly Group, has created a chaos in the international music industry. According to him the success shouldn’t be defined by awards. However, the new pop star made in the USA, child of Disney like Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez, has a good chance of winning the bet, she who is in the running in seven categories including those of the best artist of the year , best album or best song “Driver’s License”.
Amid international music heavyweights, Pakistan-raised singer/songwriter and composer Arooj Aftab will make her way to the 64th Grammy Awards on Sunday, among other Breakout of the Year contenders, who bring an extraordinary twist audacity and diversity to the mesmerizing evening. Many of you will be amazed to know that Arooj Aftab, 37, was very pessimistic about her chances of competing one day for a gramophone, (Trophy awarded during Grammy Award Ceremony). In her words she said, “I didn’t think that would happen,”. And yet, “I told myself that this should be normal”. Dream come true? Answer at the end of the weekend.
