The beautiful and talented Shreya Ghoshal is finally here with her troupe of 25 for the much anticipated show booked for the Guyana National Stadium, Providence this evening.
Plans were put in place for the singing beauty to be welcomed by members of the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha, and members of the media.
Come this evening, the Indian superstar is expected to thrill locals with her melodious voice and charismatic charms.
She will be accompanied by two male singers – Jeffrey Iqbal and Prithvi Gandharva. While there is not much known about Prithvi, an impressive video of Jeffrey singing has been in circulation on the television.
This very much anticipated show is part of the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha’s month of activities in preparation of the Hindu festival of lights, Diwali (November 13).
Shreya Ghoshal is among the best playback singers in Bollywood, with one of the softest, sweetest voices and she is finally here. The chance to see her perform live on stage is tonight.
Shreya is the winner of four National Film Awards, five Filmfare Awards, five IIFA Awards, five Screen Awards and numerous others; and with that, Shreya Ghoshal has made a name for herself as the most awarded female playback singer in the Indian Film Industry today.
Equally comfortable with her own hits and the evergreen hits of Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle, Shreya Ghoshal brings the perfect combination of yesteryear and the present to her concerts, so a promisingly exciting concert awaits patrons.
She has worked in more than 180 films, some of which may be among our favourites; one such film is Devdas. After she was able to capture the attention of legendary movie director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Shreya was offered the opportunity to be the voice of Paro, the lead female character played by Aishwarya Rai from the hit film Devdas.
She was able to do magic with the five songs she sang in that film. Her performance won her the Filmfare Award for Best Female Playback Singer, as well as Filmfare’s RD Burman Award for New Music Talent. She also won the National Film Award for the song “Bairi Piya”.
This very beautiful and talented young lady has composed songs with many music greats including Udit Narayan, the sensational Sonu Nigam, the very much talented Atif Aslam, and A.R. Rahaman.
Some of her most popular hits and Guyanese favourites include Teri Ore from the movie Singh is King; Dhola Re Dhola from Devda; Dhoom Tana and Om Shanti Om from the Movie Om Shanti Om; Teri Meri from the movie bodyguard; Piya O Re Piya from Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya; her solo peace Bahaara from the movie I Hate Luv Storys; as well as the well loved song Chori Kiya Re Jiya featuring Sonu Nigam.
Shreya Ghoshal is also very gifted when it comes to classical songs. And one particular classical number for which Shreya received much deserved praises for is Mere Dholna from the Movie Bhool Bhulaiya.
Keep your fingers crossed, as Shreya may very well sing one of your favourite songs tonight.
Shreya is on tour in North America and the Caribbean, and after performing in Trinidad, Guyana is her final stop.
