Singer Sami Yusuf Brings Two Worlds Together
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Maybe it's no surprise that a Muslim immigrant would be drawn to the music of Sami Yusuf. Like so many immigrants, the popular singer straddles two worlds. He's 26. He grew up in London. He's a British Muslim who says his music promotes the message of Islam. In Britain, like the U.S., Muslims are dealing with the aftermath of a terror attack, but he encourages Muslims to be proud of their identity.
