Freddie Mercury to be honoured
Freddie Mercury To Be Honoured At The 2011 Asian Awards
The Queen star will be given a special Founders Award…
Paying tribute to Freddie Mercury on what would have been his 65th Birthday this year, The Asian Awards will honour Freddie’s life and outstanding contribution to music on 18th October, at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London.
Farrokh Bulsara, known to the world as the legendary Queen star Freddie Mercury, was Parsi, and was born in Zanzibar and educated in Bombay.
The Asian Awards will not only turn the world’s spotlight on the musical legacy of this iconic and inspirational man, but Freddie’s cultural heritage as well.
A host of stars, including Freddie’s family and bandmate Brian May will attend the Awards, hosted by Lord Sebastian Coe, which celebrates the outstanding achievements of individuals born in or with direct family origin from India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan or Bangladesh across all disciplines of life.
The 2010 Awards saw legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar crowned Lebara People’s Choice winner and AR Rahman awarded the gong for Outstanding Achievement in Music winner, while word-class singer Sonu Niigaam took to the stage.
