The audience gave him standing ovation for every song he sang on stage. He sang impromptu versions of his top chart songs like Chaiyya Chaiyya from Dil Se and Ramta Jogi from Taal, followed by many other popular numbers.
‘Only a crazy artist can make his audience go crazy for him’, declared renowned Bollywood playback singer, Sukhwinder Singh, to an auditorium packed with over 500 students at Whistling Woods International’s (WWI) 5th Veda cultural hub on August 31, 2017.
The 5th Veda Cultural Hub is a weekly event that gives the students at WWI a chance to meet and learn from the great of India media – films, music, theatre, comedy and more. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn from the industry greats, be they celebrated lyricists or legendary actors.
Sukhwinder Singh shared his life journey and secrets of singing to students and said, “Make your learning process exciting and interesting, and you will never want to stop learning.” He also revealed innovative techniques to practice singing. He shared, “Put on your headphones and walk to the beats of the song to get a feel of each beat. Someone who truly listens to music and understands every beat, will invariably be able to sing it.”
The session was moderated by Subhash Ghai, Founder and Chairman, WWI. Singh also shared, “Your belief is what truly matters; it will give you the power to achieve anything you want.”
During the interaction, Subhash Ghai shared, “Sukhwinder Singh is such a versatile singer that in the song Ramta Jogi from Taal, he sung the words ‘Ramta Jogi’ in 27 different variations! He brings such nuances to the songs that make the songs come alive onscreen. I have the fondest memories of working with this illustrious singer, who has given the Hindi film industry some of the most beautiful songs.”
The interactive question and answer session with the celebrated singer had students laughing their hearts out as they could relate to Singh’s humorous responses. He made the session even more engaging by practically showcasing his techniques of singing, backed by his team of musicians.
The students were further awestruck when the singer performed his popular number, Bismil from Haider.
