The song of success!!
They did it again. Anand (the boy who won at Rotary’s Innerwheel contest last year, sang for RJs at Mirchi and Meow FMs, and is undoubtedly one of the best singing talents Deepalaya has) and Ratan (another emerging singer from the fraternity) have qualified for the Semi Finals of Chaturth. The competition, organized by the Rotary Club of Delhi, assessed more than 125 children in 4 categories for their singing skills over 3 days.
Anand practises with the Ramditti Rock Band
The third round of auditions held at Chelmsford Club on April 18, and strictly meant for members of the Rotary/Interact had six children from Deepalaya schools participating in 2 categories. The children were given a minute to tune with the designated accompanists, and two minutes to sing the song. Anand sang ‘baora mann dekhne chala ek sapna’ while Ratan enthralled the audience with a patriotic ‘sandese aate hain’. Following a standing ovation to the kids, Deepalaya’s work got a mention along with a brief introduction of Rtn TK Mathew. The children were excited. As the results declared Anand and Ratan ‘in’, they wee elated! The Semi Finals are scheduled on the 25th of April.
