It is always an honour for me to share my songs with others at community events, places of worship, festivals, conferences, theatres, schools or universities ~ with no gathering being too large or too small. However, I do not accept invitations to entertain at private parties (birthdays, anniversaries, weddings etc).
In addition to a nominal honorarium, hosts are also expected to cover my basic travel and hotel accommodation costs.
Each year, my annual presentation honorariums are split three ways: a fixed portion toward my family’s personal living expenses, a fixed portion toward my ongoing artistic production (recording and business administration costs) and the remainder toward Al Imtiaz Academy, a school in Pakistan directly overseen by my family. The Al Imtiaz Academy trust is also the primary beneficiary of my album sales and royalties.
