Being an Indian, of course, I’m thrilled to see my fellow South Asian people be successful. These days, Jay Sean is one of the desi artists who has been representing well for the rest of us in the field of music. No longer are desis just seen as being doctors, scientists, engineers, and business people. Now, we have a voice (literally) in the world of entertainment as well. After the success of Slumdog Millionaire, the US and other non-Indian countries have been opened to the world of Bollywood. NBC even tried a India-based show called “Outsourced.” Indian actors are being seen more often on TV (there’s an indian cast member in 30 Rock, The Office, Parks and Recreations, Big Bang Theory, etc.)
Back in May, the website I work for – UrbanAsian.com – broke the news that pop singing sensation, Jay Sean, will be featured in an episode of Sesame Street. Sesame Street, which is a popular children’s show here in the states, typically calls artists on the show when they’ve made it in their respective fields . Guess that Jay Sean has REALLY made it in the world of music!
Now that the episode has been filmed, we’ve got your exclusive look at the video Jay recorded with Grover – http://urbanasian.com/music/2011/09/jay-sean-heads-to-sesame-street/ Head over to UrbanAsian and check out the footage!!
