Annie Tenu Takiya

British Pakistani music artist, Annie Khalid, was appointed to be the Goodwill Ambassador for the International Red Cross on September 23rd, 2010.

She has been supporting and contributing in various activities to raise funds for the victims of the floods in Pakistan.

Annie Khalid, who has already made it big in the Pakistani music scene, is now launching her pop career in the UK with the single “Be My Baby” mixed by DJ Judge Jules, and a music video directed and produced by Bradley.tv.

All the proceeds from this UK debut single would be donated to the flood victims in Pakistan.

“It’s the worst disaster that has hit Pakistan and being a Pakistani it’s my duty to give whatever I can, so through this song I am doing that.” She said.

Annie was recently in Norway where she raised money with the Red Cross for the flood victims in Pakistan.

Being a global artist she feels she can work for various causes and bridge gaps between communities. She has a registered charity with which she would like to raise health and education awareness worldwide.

Annie received the honor from the Red Cross Secretary General, Borge Brende on stage.“I am ecstatic and I was taken aback when my name was announced. I believe it’s not only a big honor but also a big responsibility.This has given me an opportunity to represent my country on an international level. Therefore, I will try and live up to all the expectations. It’s not only an achievement for me, it’s an achievement for my country as well.” She said.
