Who is Zameer Rizvi?

Zameer Rizvi is a Canadian singer/songwriter, musician and composer. Rizvi's songs often reference social and political issues resulting from his exposure to political unrest while living in Pakistan, Libya and Saudi Arabia. Rizvi's poignant writing style landed him amidst much controversy with songs "Mind Over Murder" and "Tatti" that challenge socio-political norms of the Middle East and South Asia. The same writing style earned him world-wide recognition when his song about social injustice against athletes with disabilities, "Win or Defeat", was licensed as a theme song by the 2010 Paralympic Games. Rizvi went on to perform the song at the 2010 Olympic Games. Rizvi garnered further success with strong sales of his debut album From Under the Bleachers from which the single "Glory of Love" rose to the 73rd spot on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. He went on the secure the #1 spot on the Billboard charts in March 2012.
