Winner of four national awards, three state awards, five Filmfare best singer awards, seven South India Filmfare best singer awards and numerous Zee Cine awards, Screen awards, IIFA awards, Radio Mirchi Music awards, Apsara awards and Global Indian Music awards, Ghoshal is the only singer to win Sa Re Ga Ma Pa awards in both the junior and senior categories. Ghoshal is one of Forbe’s Top 100 Celebrities of India and as per Saavn, the top music site for Indian music, she was declared the most popular Indian artist of 2013.
Winner of the national best singer award with her very first song ‘Bairi Piya’ in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Devdas ( 2000 ) at the age of 16, Ghoshal has since become the most popular singing star of India and many compare her to India’s Nightingale Lata Mangeshkar. Shreya Ghoshal has performed all over the world to packed auditoriums and recently she became the only Indian singer to sell out Royal Albert Hall twice in a year. KVP Entertainers and Kamal’s Video Palace, who recently brought Mohit Chauhan and Mamta Sharma and Sonu Nigam to Vancouver, are presenting Ghoshal on Saturday, August 30 at Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre and tickets at $35, $45, $55, $65, $75 and $100 are already available at Kamal’s Video Palace, Surrey (604-592-9777), Shaaz Video, Burnaby (604-439-0463), Main Video, Vancouver (604-322-5551), and Mehta Video, Abbotsford, and can also be bought online at www.vtixonline.com.
Accompanied by talented singer Hrishikesh, musicians and Bollywood dancers, Ghoshal will sing some of the evergreen songs of Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle and Geeta Dutt, along with her latest chartbusting songs which have made her the darling of masses, says Kamal Sharma, the promoter who introduced her to British Columbian audiences in 2010. The concert is a must for all those who love Indian music.
