Toronto, June 24 (IANS) Singer Jermaine Jackson is upbeat about performing with Indian crooner Sonu Niigaam at the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) extravaganza here, and says his family is a fan of Bollywood. "I am very honoured to have been invited here at IIFA. Me and my family members are true lovers of Bollywood, especially its music and dance," Jermaine, who is late King of Pop Michael Jackson's brother, said here.
Jermaine will perform with Sonu at the IIFA Rocks - a music and fashion event to be held at the Ricoh Coliseum here Friday night, the eve of Michael's second death anniversary.
"I am thankful to the entire world for being supportive at the time of Michael's death, and I am really excited to be part of the composition by Sonu. I am sure I will have a great time...he has composed a great track," added Jermaine, who also launched a green badge for IIFA at the inaugural press conference for the event.
The song that the duo will perform has been chosen as a tribute song for Michael, who died June 25, 2009, by his family.
Hopefully, Sonu would be able to do justice to the much-awaited performance because he has come to Toronto with a sore throat!
