    In loving memory of Star Voice of India Ishmeet Singh, his parents, father Gurpinder Singh and mother Amritpal Kaur are in the UK to organize and to gather support for a unique event due to begin in June 2009. The TV reality show will be based on Classical Gurbani kirtan. Children and youngsters of all ages will be encouraged to take part in this show which will be recorded in Punjab and televised live to a worldwide audience. The youth will be judged on the best classical and traditional performance of Gurbani kirtan by a panel of experts in this field. The event will be shown on PTC Punjabi channel over period June 2009 to August 2009. The final of this special Sikhi event will take place during the first week of September 2009.

    Ishmeet’s parents will be in the UK until 10th May 2009 to promote this world first. All the UK sangat is kindly requested to help this deserving cause and promote this event in bringing classical shabad kirtan to the forefront of our daily lives. Please contact the UK mobile numbers given below to help this worthy cause.

    The shows are due to take place in June, July and August 2009 on PTC Punjabi channel. Gaavo Sachi Baani will encourage and promote the singing of Classical Gurbani in lines this sacred tuk of the Guru: http://www.{url not allowed}/files/news/2009/May/Kirtan.gif
    Kaljug meh kirtan pardhana. Gurmukh japaah lahay dhehana.
    “In this Age of Kaljug, the singing of Kirtan is most supreme .
    The Gurmukh chants with focused attention.“
    (SGGS ang 1075)​
    The Sikh Gurus have pronounced that Kirtan is the magical formula to keep the human soul afloat in the dark era of Kaljug provided the devotee sings the pure melodies with his or her heart closely focused on the meaning and true spirit of the Gurbani.

    It was one of Ishmeet's keen ambitions to himself sing and encourage other to sing Gurbani. This is the first major mission in this field by the ISF and we are much enthralled by the support that we have received so far in the UK.

    Aims of the “Ishmeet Singh Foundation” are: (1) To identify, support & promote talented youth in the curricular and co-curricular activities. (2) To fulfill the ideals depicted by the persona and values of Ishmeet Singh. (3) To work for the social, cultural, intellectual and spiritual uplift of humanity irrespective of caste, color, creed, region or religion.

    About the “Ishmeet Singh Foundation”:

    The above named Foundation has been floated jointly by father of Ishmeet Singh, S. Gurpinder Singh and Ishmeet Singh's uncle, Dr. Charan Kamal Singh. The Trustees of the Foundation together with Board of Directors constitute the Supreme Council of this organization. All final policy decisions are taken by the Supreme Council.

    The Patrons of Ishmeet Singh Foundation will provide the requisite resources to ensure the fulfillment of the achievements of the aims and objectives of the Foundation. All patrons are part of the presidium in all functions of the Foundation.

    The Foundation has a panel of experts who provide expert advice for acceptance or rejection of any proposal or project related to their respective fields of expertise.

    Towering legends and renowned personalities are the members of Advisory Council which provide advice and suggestions to meet the aims and objectives of the Foundation.

    The Chairman's message:

    Now that we have the ISF established, it is time to begin the work which Ishmeet had started and that he would have wanted to do himself. It is now our time to do those tasks and jobs which he would have loved to do himself. The direction and thought-process of Ishmeet is our guidance and defines the objectives of the Foundation.

    The foremost aim of Ishmeet Singh Foundation shall be to impress the youth to be able to follow the way shown by Ishmeet Singh himself. Impressed by the appearance and mannerism of Ishmeet Singh, many Sikh youth have vowed to keep the values of our culture and community intact as the way Ishmeet Singh had done.

    This has been the important message from Ishmeet Singh on every occasions that he interacted with the youth. He offered to help anyone who would excel in his field but also would keep one’s cultural values intact.

    ISF shall endeavor to help the deserving talented youth in any walk of life where they have shown that they can excel. ISF appeals to corporate houses, organizations, institutions, visionary individuals and all fans of Ishmeet Singh around the world to donate and contribute to the Foundation so that Ishmeet dreams can be fulfilled and that suitably positioned youth can be elevated to achieve their dreams, just as Ishmeet did. That probably is the best way to communicate with Ishmeet Singh and to make him feel happy with our actions - It is now our turn to act!

    Gurpinder Singh, Chairman
