Proceeds from the concert will go to the scholarship fund in Rahman's name, intended to send Indian students to study music at Berklee. While there, Rahman will also conduct a masterclass for current Berklee students.

Rahman is himself honored to be a part of such a collaboration. Berklee's website quotes him saying:

"I'm deeply moved to receive an honorary doctorate from such a distinguished school which has contributed so much to the world of music. I'm especially proud and honored the college is graciously establishing a scholarship in my name for future generations of musicians to follow their dreams."
