PESHAWAR, Feb 21: A musical concert by pop singer Jawad Ahmed drew many music lovers and enthusiasts who enjoyed every bit of the event that was held to raise funds for the hapless children at a local hotel on Wednesday night.

This was the third visit of Jawad here. Majority of the audience consisted of students and teenagers. Also appreciable was the sound system which was very clearly audible that facilitated the concert to linger on uninterrupted.

Music was glaring from every aspect which kept the audience spellbound and asked for more songs when it was all over. Jawad Ahmed sang his famous numbers that sent the young lot into swinging.

The singer had asked the management to let the people dance because they were preventing them from doing so.

The proceedings got underway at 8:30pm and remained in progress till 11pm.

A Punjabi song, O’ Kandi A Sian Mein Teri Yan (O’ darling I am yours), was applauded largely. Bin Terai Kia Jeena (What is the life without you) was another song that compelled the listeners to clap profusely.

The concert was held to raise funds for an Islamabad-based NGO, HOAP (Helping Oppressed And Powerless).
