Sri Lankan-born international pop star, Alston Koch, has been chosen to sing the Sri Lankan national anthem by Cricket Australia at the Sri Lanka vs. Australia test matches in Australia.
Alston will sing the anthem at the Hobart Test match beginning December 14, the legendary Boxing Day Test on December 26 at the MCG, and at the first One Day International on January 11, 2013.
Alston will also release the music video for his new song, “The Trees Of Babylon,” which will be featured on the big screen at the COMMONWEALTH One Day International cricket matches starting January 11 which coincides with the release date of his new CD single.
2012 has been a great year for Alston Koch due to the major success of his album, “Don’t Funk with Me,” reaching the top of the music charts in Australia and
the world with the Australian Record Industry Association (ARIA), giving him the title of “Funk Master” and the press and media anointing him as “The Disco King.”
The largest selling magazine in the southern hemisphere, “Woman’s Day,” in a huge feature, called it the “Good news chart success story of 2012.”
The above accolades and chart successes have never been achieved by any Asian entertainer outside the country of his birth.
Alston Koch is a member of the International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP), a fast-growing grassroots travel and tourism coalition of global destinations committed to quality service and green growth.
