Some Facts and stories about Sonu Nigam

 
Sonu Niigaam hits highest note for patriotic song

Music director Shamir Tandon can't stop raving about Sonu Niigaam who hit the highest note ever for a patriotic track in the film Kandahar. Directed by retired army officer, Major Ravi, the trilingual project in Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam, toplines Amitabh Bachchan and Mohanlal."The song in question is Naman hai.. and Sonu has hit the highest note in human vocal registry with an open-throat effort without singing falsetto," explains Tandon. Technically, the last octave is the highest possible note that can be humanly hit. And it's usually achieved while singing falsetto when the voice begins to vibrate and turns shrill.

"Sonu was unaware of what he had done. Very few people in the world can go this far. The late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was an exception but even he sounded shrill. Sonu sustained the pitch admirably and the heaviness in his voice added a melancholic touch to the song," exults Tandon.

Naman hai'has been penned by lyricist Sandeep Nath who also wrote verses for Tandon's earlier soundtracks for movies like Page 3 and Corporate. "Ravi wanted lines that weren't overdramatic and he wanted a Hindi synonym of salaam that could be used across the three languages. Naman is another word for salute in Hindi," says Tandon.

This soft rock number, complete with electric violin, guitar distortion and live drums, though in Hindi, will be used in all three versions of the film. The other songs will be dubbed in the respective languages.

Ahh I've been dying to hear this song ever since you told me about it last year.. its still not out yet? Unhappy

Sonu Nigam, a singer who has never failed to impress. Whether we talk about his versatile singing, his professional attitude, his down-to-earth behavior or his humorous nature. In other words, he is a complete artist, in search of new panoramas every time he comes to sing.Smile

Talking about his concerts, he is the best entertainer I have ever seen. He exactly knows how to keep his audience entertained by pertaining a light-hearted atmosphere during his concerts. His famous rendition 'Aloo-gobi-mooli-matar paneer' Big smile of explaining how a piece of music is made, is such a wonderfully simple and interesting part of most of his concerts. If you haven't seen this side of Sonu Nigam... Then I recommend you should watch this video from one of his concerts...




Most of the singers nowadays can only sing well while recording in studios, once they perform live you get to know their real capabilities. Here comes the absolute charm of Sonu Nigam, not only can he sing live excellently, but he can creatively add his own renditions with in it at that very moment. Making the song sound different as well as giving it a fresh feel. Want to hear such a performance from him? Here you go, Check out how he sang the famous 'Soniyo' song. Smile


Coming to Sonu's mimicry, here I can directly assert that I have never ever seen a more perfect mimic than Sonu. Mimicry is an art not easily captured by every other layman. Sonu not only copies the exact ditto voice of the singers he copies, but his body language immediately becomes like that singer. Plus, the most interesting part, Sonu can actually copy female voices too, which always amazes me. Big smile  His timing and presentation is so perfect that we actually feel the particular singer standing before us and that's what makes all of his mimicry performances such a side-splitting experience. Here's a glimpse of what he did in Indian Idol 4. Big smile



Sonu Nigam, in my eyes, is a legendary star and I am extremely proud to be a part of the generation which has grown up listening to him. Smile
