Harbhajan Mann takes his fans on a nonstop musical ride at Atlanta concert

Harbhajan Mann's vocal power showed why he is considered one of the biggest names in the Punjabi music scene. The singing sensation's 2 �-hour performance at the auditorium in Atlanta's Berkmar High School was part of his "Asa Nu Maan Watana Da" tour in the United States.

This fast-paced event was organized by Walia of Hot Millions Entertainment and Jas Bajwa of Sadapunjab.com in coordination with Balwinder Bajwa, who is also the promoter for Mann's U.S. tour. While the show was delayed by 45 minutes due to a technical glitch, the audiences forgot all about it once Mann came on stage. Organizers also felt there were a few issues in managing the event and have promised to provide trouble-free events in the future.

Mann kicked off the show with Asa Nu Maan Watana Da. And followed it up with some of his numbers which included Oye-Hoye, Chithiye ni Chithiye, Ja Jyundeyan de Mele and Nachlai. Mann's latest album, Dil Dol Gaya, is currently out in the market. He is also about to begin his career as an actor with the upcoming release of Dil Apna Punjabi, directed by Manmohan Singh.

The audience response made Mann break away from convention and perform nonstop during the concert. "Mom! I am seeing him live!!!" a 10-year-old girl was heard yelling when she saw the singer on stage. His fans, young and old, could be seen dancing to their favorite Mann songs.

"I am grateful to all our guests who have honored me by inviting me to Atlanta" said Mann. His message for Atlanta: "Asa Nu Maan Watana Da" (We are proud of our motherland)" and the need to retain "Dil Apna Punjabi" (Our heart is Punjabi).
