Cakra Khan wows AGT judges by singing “No Women No Cry”


Jakarta, IO – Cakra Khan, 31-year-old singer and songwriter from Indonesia, shared a moment when he auditioned for America’s Got Talent (AGT) show in the US. Through his Instagram account @cakra.khan, he uploaded his performance in one of the episodes, Wednesday (19/7).

Cakra Khan sang two songs, ‘Make It Rain’ by Ed Sheeran and ‘No Woman No Cry’ by Bob Marley. He sang the second song because Simon Cowell, one of the judges, stopped and asked him to sing a different song.

“I think you have a great voice, but I don’t like the song. Any other songs?” requested Simon Cowell.

Khan, who intially looked dazed, then chose ‘No Woman No Cry’. He said he has fond memories of Bob Marley, one of his favorite singers.

“I grew up with Bob Marley’s songs and my late father always played this song before I left for school,” explained Cakra Khan.

“Bismillah, assalamualaikum everyone. Hi everyone, I just want to say thank you for everything, I’m grateful to have you all on my journey @agt @agtauditions,” posted Cakra Khan. (un)
