MUMBAI: Popularly known as the voice of the streets, Divine - Sony Music artist is all set to enthrall fans at Youth Ki Awaaz Converge 2016. The platform that aims at creating some of the most interesting and socially relevant conversations saw a perfect match in Divine whose music represents the voice of the common man and the youth of the country.
