A.R.Rahman Receives The World Economic Forum’s Crystal Award 2011

He has did it again! On Wednesday, international music maestro A.R. Rahman was in Davos, Switzerland to receive the World Economic Forum’s Crystal Award for his ‘contributions to worldwide culture and art.’


A.R. Rahman was pleased to receive the accolade and told the crowd, Countries that work to eradicate poverty and help the poor are the best. Short but sweet acceptance speech!

And just the other day the famous music maker got another Oscar nom, this time for the soundtrack of Danny Boyle’s hit movie 127 Hours with Hollywood hottie James Franco.

The song "If I Rise" that features British pop singer Dido was nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song and the film’s soundtrack was nominated for Best Original Score.

But competition is tough as "If I Rise" featuring British pop songstress Dido is up against tracks like "Coming Home" from Country Strong, "I See the Light" fromTangled and "We Belong Together" from Toy Story 3.

In the Best Original Score category, 127 Hours is up against movies like How to Train Your Dragon, Inception, The King’s Speech and the hugely popular The Social Network that snagged most trophies at this year’s Golden Globe awards.

But the Slumdog Millionaire hit maker is in no way in need of more awards! The score for Slumdog earned him numerous awards, including Oscars, Grammys and a Golden Globe.And he can now add the Crystal Award to his long list of trophies.
