Sunidhi Chauhan performing in Meri Awaz Suno Mega Finals 1996-First Round
Annu Kapoor introducing the judges and the first round performances by Sunidhi and myself
After a long gap, I am back with some nostalgic and rare video footages; the introduction of judges and the first round of "Meri Awaz Suno" 1996 which was the turning point in my life and those winning moments! I had been for long planning to get the videos out from the fungus infected VHS tapes and finally managed to clean and transfer the tapes to digital format. This has been a long standing demand from my ardent fans. Many of those from the younger generation would not have seen the so called "first reality show" on singing talent hunt. When I searched "YouTube", I was not able to find any footage of Meri Awaz Suno, and so decided to do it myself. For those who have seen it in 1996, it would be wonderful and nostalgic again, to watch the 12 year old Sunidhi singing "Tu Chanda Mai Chandni" in front of one of the greatest living legends in music, of our times....Lata Mangeshkar! The video also reminds us the story of unkept tall promises....promises that even today are made to the amazingly talented winners of our reality shows which are made just not to be kept! It's been 12 long years after "Meri Awaz Suno"....The journey has been long from then to now.....
The winning moments!
