Hurriyet Daily News, 30.04.2010

Famous Turkish pop singer Sezen Aksu will be in concert in the United States between April 4 and 7.

The concert tour of Aksu will begin at Strathmore Concert Hall in North Bethesda town of Maryland on April 4, and continue at Carnegie Hall of New York on Apr. 6, and end at Prudential Hall in Newark, New Jersey on April 7.

A press release made by Turkish magazine "TurkofAmerica," which is published in the U.S., said the concerts, commonly organized by TurkofAmerica and GNL Entertainment and sponsored by the Washington-based Turkish Cultural Foundation, have drawn great interest from Turks living in Maryland, New York and New Jersey, as well as the neighboring states Virginia, Washington, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and even Florida.

Aksu's latest concert in the U.S. was organized by New York-based "Moon and Stars Project" in 2000. More than 8,000 people are expected to attend Aksu's concert series.

Aksu is also a songwriter and producer who has sold over 40 million albums worldwide. Her nicknames include the "Queen of Turkish Pop" and "Minik Serçe" (Little Sparrow). She performed at the Royal Albert Hall in London, on Oct. 7, 2007. She was only the second Turkish artist after Zeki Müren to have ever performed at this prestigious venue.

Aksu has recently been re-releasing all her old classics with a digital re-mastering and in new specially designed sleeves.
