Dechen Shak-Dagsay and Richard Gere

Dear friends, 
What a wonderful personality! I had the chance to meet
Richard Gere this morning in Zürich as he was here for the 8th Zurich Film Festival to promote his movie "Arbitrage" with Susan Sarandon and to pick up the "Golden Icon Award 2012". I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to speak to Richard and to express my thanks for his untiring support for Tibet and the preservation of our culture. He was happy to hear about all our social engagements in Tibet and encouraged me to continue this important social work through my music. Therefore I was honored to present Richard my current album "JEWEL" produced by Helge van Dyk. I am happy to feel his kindness and his keen interest. Yours Dechen
