KS Chitra has dedicated her upcoming Dubai concert to late singer and mentor SP Balasubrahmanyam (SPB).

The singer, who will take to the stage on December 24 for the ‘Musically Yours’ concert, had earlier performed with SPB in Dubai back in November 2015.

“In November 2015, I performed in Dubai at the Oberoi Events production, ‘Legends in Concert’ together with my mentor, the late Shri SP Balasubrahmanyam, who gifted us with so much immortal music. In ‘Musically Yours’, I will pay a special and humble tribute to SPB sir as well as my musical gurus who have inspired me over the years,” Chitra said in a statement ahead of her concert.

Organised by Oberoi Middle East Events, the concert will also see Chitra pay tribute to singing legends from India, including Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle and KJ Yesudas, among others.
