To honour the exceptional musical talent of a 12-year-old Indian-origin girl, the prestigious Royal Carnegie Hall, New York is all set to host a concert for Nilanjanaa Jayant. She will join the legendary Indian musicians such as Pandit Shivkumar Sharma and Ustad Zakir Hussain to perform LIVE at Carnegie Hall, New York. The concert will happen in October, 2016.
Nilanjanaa Jayant is a western classic singer, who has won the hearts of large audience of America with her startling talent. The honour follows her recent victory at the Golden Voices of America competition. She had sent a clipping of herself performing Frank Sinatra’s jazz tune ‘Fly me to the Moon’ and will now perform the same song live at Carnegie Hall this October. She was declared winner in the Musical Theatre/Disney/Broadway/Jazz category.
Golden Voices of America is an international competition open to all countries for vocalists of various age groups. It began in 2009 as the American Fine Arts Festival.
Nilanjanaa’s teacher from Bengaluru music school Taaqademy Ragini Ramanathan will also receive a certificate of recognition from the Golden Voices of America.
The only child of JP Nagar residents Jayant Ananthkrishnan and Sangeeta Ananth, Nilanjanaa studies in class VIII at The Samhita Academy, Bannerghatta Road, in Bengaluru, India. The young Indian artist also admitted she has a bit of stage fright but she is going to calm herself down before getting on stage at Carnegie Hall.
