Singer Karma Sherpa, star of Indian TV show SaReGaMaPa (2010), performed at the Sadbhavna Samaroh (Goodwill Gathering concert) in Bellevue. The concerts provide a common platform for local non-profits serving various ethnic groups within the local South Asian community.

The event was sponsored by the Asian Counseling and Referral Services (ACRS). ACRS executive director Diane Narasaki welcomed Karma to Seattle and recognized him with a plaque from the organization for his performance.

ACRS is a nationally recognized nonprofit organization offering a broad array of human services and behavioral health programs to Asian Pacific Americans in King County. ACRS is the largest multiservice organization serving all the different Asian Pacific American communities (immigrants, refugees, and American born) in the Pacific Northwest.

Organized by South Asian Performing Arts and Resource Center (SAMPARC) and the Washington State and India Trade Relations Action Committee (WASITRAC), the event was also supported by Tasveer, Nepal Seattle Society, and Prashanthi Chitre Institute of Performing Arts.
