First things first. How is it that legendary American talk show host Larry King knows Sonu Niigaam? Well, Sonu is friends with Larry’s current spouse, country singer Shawn Southwick. According to him, he has interacted with her many times during his overseas music projects, and it was she who introduced him to Larry.
Larry King has roped in singer Sonu Niigaam for his Larry King Cardiac Foundation, a foundation that provides free check-ups, medical help and surgeries to underprivileged Americans suffering from heart problems.
Sonu said, “I’ve seen how committed Larry is to the cause, having suffered a heart attack himself. He thought having me on board would help his foundation and I’m honoured that he thought so. I’ve never shied from charitable work, and if I can do such work in India, then why can’t I do it in America?”
And if sources are to be believed, Niigaam has actually managed to persuade King to visit India.
Niigaam, who is not to be seen much in Mumbai these days, confirmed this piece of news himself.
