Ilayaraja to compose Kalam anthemPublished: October 10, 2015
To mark the birth anniversary of former President of India APJ Abdul Kalam who passed away recently, maestro Ilayaraja is coming out with a song titled ‘Kalam Anthem‘.
Ilayaraja will also be the special guest of a function in Chennai on October 15, in which Kalam’s family and followers will be paying tributes to him. On the occasion, a foundation will be launched for turning his Vision 20:20 into reality.
“Family members of Kalam, including his brother, nieces and nephews, will attend the event,” says organiser of the event Abdul Ghani, adding that it will be an emotional, and at the same time, a meaningful function.
“Ilayaraja likes Kalam and his policies. So he readily came forward with the Kamal anthem. It will be a fitting musical tribute to the people’s president,” sources said.
