Although the concert yesterday was a group concert with 4 singers famous in their own right, there was one person who single handedly made the show a romping success, and a fun-filled one.
It was Karthik - the voice behind many a song in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi. His "Chori Pe Chori" in Saathiya caught the attention of the Hindi speaking crowd, but he's been pretty popular in Tamil singing one hit after another. right from his first song in Star - Nendhikitten to this first few noticed songs in Baba - Shakthi Kodu and Maya Maya to Uyire En Uyire, Anaarkali, Ale Ale, Oru Maalai and Kan Pesum Vaarthaigal, he's had a good collection of songs.
A young guy, who was purusing Chartered Accountancy before getting into film playback singing, has been in a lot of songs on my playlist. But his performance at Naach - 2007 in Phoenix on Sept 22nd was the one that caught my attention totally. He was too good with his songs and at the same time entertaining.
Usually music concerts turn out to be, singers singing one song after another and get away. But this was not the case, He interacted with the audience pretty well and knew the audience pulse. This was his great success/achievement which most singers don't get.
