Ahmedabad got its share of musical stardom when heavy weights Shaan, Monty Sharma, Ismail Darbar, Sukhvinder Singh along with the Voice of India contestants gave a stage show recently!!

Shaan has a personal connect with Gujarat as his wife Radhika, hails from the same state. Shaan’s parents-in-law were present at his special moment to support him. He enjoyed a dual benefit of personal as well as professional amalgamation from this trip.

Shaan said, “I like everything about Gujarat. The state exudes positivity and vibrancy. I like Gujarati food, rituals, the way people dress and their zest for life.” About Voice of India he said, “I feel the industry has now opened up and has not confined itself to select voices.”

The show started with a garba performance. The head turner was a huge horse carriage decorated in typical Maharaja's style hauling the three judges at the venue. 

Top five contestants, Ravi Shukla, Vipul Mehta, Mallar Karmakar, Ritisha Padmanabh and Saptaparna Chakroborty put up a sparkling performance. Their voices and musical notes were just perfect.

At the performance of these dynamic five, Sukhwinder Singh commented, “I believe all the contestants have a distinctive style and when they sing, they can pull off any song very well. I am not a judge on this show. I’m just here to learn from these kids and share with them what I know about music.”

Ismail Darbar commented, “Our villages and small towns have mines of hidden talents that are not seen in the metros. They have the desire, the passion to do something in their lives. It’s difficult to judge reality shows because people just don’t understand that music is the core of our life and there are some finer aspects of music that only with experience one can understand.”

The velvet voiced Sonu Nigam was the surprise guest of the evening. Sonu wooed the audience when he crooned his chart busting numbers, Ishq Bina, saathiya and Jeene ke hai chaar din. He himself had a blast and lessened the tension on the participants' faces which were being witnessed week after week.
