The young singer performed Tori Kelly’s hit song Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing with ease and confidence, impressing the audience. Posting the video, Farhan Akhtar said, “You’ve come a long way, Akira Akhtar .. keep going …the world is your oyster. Shannon Donald big hug (you know why). Shout out to the incredible band on stage last night,”. Check it out.
