Fan shares video of Arooj Aftab singing in a church | The Express Tribune


After serenading the nation with her hauntingly beautiful voice in Coke Studio’s Mehram, and later performing at Coachella, Grammy winner Arooj Aftab has now vowed her listeners at a church. A fan took to Twitter to share how it was an “out of body experience.”

Sharing a short clip of the Mohabbat singer in a church, the awe-struck fan wrote, “Arooj Aftab singing to us in a church was an out of body experience. This was the only clip I could get myself to record before it felt like sacrilege. [I’m] still in absolute awe.”

In April, the Brooklyn-based Pakistani vocalist scored her first Grammy, winning a prestigious trophy for her song Mohabbat in the Best Global Performance category. The 37-year-old — who has lived in New York for some 15 years — has been steadily gaining global attention for her work that fuses ancient Sufi traditions with inflections of folk, jazz and minimalism.
