About Sami Yusuf:
Loved and admired by almost a quarter of the worlds population, Sami Yusuf has not only sold an estimated 7 million albums, pulled crowds of over 250,000 people in Turkey, but has also received the public recognition he deserves by being named amongst 2009's 500 most influential Muslims in the world alongside various other iconic personalities.
Revolutionizing the Islamic music industry, as we’ve known it, Sami Yusuf is today, a household name amongst 1.6 billion Muslims around the world. Hailed by Time Magazine as “Islam's biggest rock star”, and named by The Guardian “perhaps the most famous British Muslim”, and chosen by Vodafone to be the brand's face in the region, Sami is a true artist of the world.
In July 2009, Sami was also awarded an honorary doctorate by Roehampton University for his “extraordinary contribution to fields including music”.
With his devout spiritual artistic talent, Sami is an exemplary icon, encouraging the youth to be proud of their faith, religion and identity. He uses his art to showcase the message of peace, unity and tolerance.
