COLD­PLAY SCREAMS OUT LOVE FOR IN­DIA

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Bri­tish rock band Cold­play is clearly not over In­dia. First, their front­man, Chris Martin played an im­pro­motu gig in the Cap­i­tal in July this year, then the band shot their mu­sic video in Mum­bai a few months later. This time around, at the Amer­i­can Mu­sic Awards in Los An­ge­les, they had Cold­play writ­ten in De­vana­gari script over am­pli­fiers.

The 43rd Amer­i­can Mu­sic Awards on Sun­day night in Los An­ge­les were all about mu­sic and trib­utes. Singer Jen­nifer Lopez hosted the night, which was kicked off with a 10-minute dance mon­tage of the year’s big­gest hits in­clud­ing Up­town Funk, Bad Blood and Hot­line Bling, among oth­ers. Other per­form­ers in­cluded Justin Bieber, Se­lena Gomez and Cold­play. But Ce­line Dion, stole the show with her ren­di­tion of French singer Edith Piaf ’s Hymne à L’Amour (Ode To Love) to hon­our the Paris at­tack vic­tims. Ac­tor Jared Leto, who in­tro­duced Dion, said the at­tacks were “hor­rific and a sense­less tragedy”. He also named friends who had been at the Bat­a­clan Con­cert Hall, one of whom, Thomas Ayad, was killed.
