Tibet: “Singing nun” performs from the heart to help causes                   
By Sasha Regehr - January 15, 2007

Compassionate Buddhist singer gives all her profits to those less fortunate


Phayul, TIBET – Working for charitable causes may be common but Ani Tsering Wangmo’s dedication is anything but superficial. An early passion for singing led Wangmo to produce several albums, which helped her spread compassion and support those less fortunate, such as the elderly, poor and orphans. Currently residing in the United States, Tibet-born Wangmo has just released a five-CD collection, Immeasurable, that will see all profits going to a medical clinic in Tibet, a nunnery in Nepal and a garden in Montana. Using traditional Buddhist chants and melodies, Wangmo has devoted most of her life to her spirituality while bridging continents and raising money through her concerts and CDs. She says, “I am just trying to have a positive effect, here in America and back home, in whatever way I can…therefore, it seems of little importance whether what I am doing is considered cliché or not.”
