LONG BEACH, Calif. — Indian and Pakistani music stars Atif Aslam, Kailash Kher, Richa Sharma and Amanat Ali headlined the “Summer Beats” concert at the Terrace Theater May 24, as a frenzied crowd of nearly 3,000 swayed to their latest pop hits, some from films and others from the stars’ signature solo releases.

Super Entertainment presented the show, which kicked off with an appearance by emcee Archana Mahajan, who set the pace with performances of the songs “Sajna diwani” and “Yeh ishq hai, jannat dikhye.”

Amanat Ali, the 20-year-old music whiz who came in third on “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2007,” had the young girls in the audience screeching in delight with a version of “Mitwa” from “Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna” and renditions of other Shah Rukh Khan hits from “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” and “Om Shanti Om.” At one point, the girls’ screams even drowned out his vocals, as the slender young singer turned in an energetic and charming performance.
