The audience was all praises for the show organized by Rehan Siddiqi of Hum Tum Shows. His recent successful shows were Fusion 2015, Arijit Singh and Alka Yagnik concerts in October this year, making him one of the most successful organizers of Houston and rightly so. No stone was left unturned to make this event a huge success. The lights and sounds done by Arif Memon were of brilliant quality. The musicians were par excellence.
