Asha Bhosle Delights American Fans with Concerts

Legendary Bollywood singer Asha Bhosle is wrapping up a rare U.S. concert tour next weekend in Phoenix and Los Angeles. Now 74, Bhosle has recorded more than 13,000 songs in almost 1,000 movies.

Bhosle's shows in Atlantic City, N.J., and elsewhere in America have featured old songs she learned from her father, as well as classical selections by her equally famous sister. Bhosle is preparing to release a new album: 75 years of Asha.
