SHREYA GHOSHAL FUNDRAISING LIVE IN CONCERT AT PASADENA CIVIC AUDITORIUM
LOS ANGELES 31ST AUG 2014
For decades Hindustani film music has been dominated by the nightingale of India, Lata Mangeshkar, and there has been speculation as to who would assume the mantle of a worthy successor to the great singer. Music circles in India and critics alike concur that Shreya Goshal is that person.
Although Shreya started singing at the tender age of four, her public adulation began with her victory, in 1999, at the age of 13, of the popular SaReGaMa competition on Zee TV. Legend has it that famed director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali noted her talent during this show and sought her out for singing the songs of his acclaimed movie, ’Devdas.’ She was only 16 when this happened.
Since her debut in the film industry, Shreya went on to sing melodious songs in films that garnered her a multitude of awards including the coveted National Films Award. She won recognition from her peers who valued her for her sweet demeanor, her mischievous smile, her discipline and her dedication to the art and craft of music. Blessed with a crystal clear voice and harmony in her notes, she captured the hearts and minds of all.
There was a demand for her to perform internationally and she was soon on the eminent stage, famous of international performers- the Wembley Arena in London. She also performed at the prestigious Sydney Opera House, in addition to venues in New Zealand, UAE, and the US. It is a matter of pride for Los Angeles that Shreya will be seen again at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium at the end of August 2014. Audiences will be enthralled by this symbol of perfection in rhythm and melody, a worthy successor to Lataji indeed.
Association of Physicians of Los Angeles of Indian Origin and all of southern California is looking forward to an exciting and energetic charity fundraising show with musical legend, SHREYA GOSHAL!!
