Shanmukhapriya excitedly shares, “I was awestruck the moment I saw Javed Sir enter the sets. I am such a huge fan of his work. His writing is what makes the song a lot more melodious. Being on the same set as him is a big deal. I am so grateful to Indian Idol Season 12 for giving me the opportunity to perform in front of a legend like Javed Sir. I couldn’t stand the ground when he mentioned he’s heard my yodeling & seen my videos. Javed Sir is a legendary artist and to receive a compliment like this means the world to me.”
Talking about doing a concert, Aditya Narayan shares, “I would love to go on a concert with Shanmukhapriya across cities once the lockdown gets uplifted. Her energy is infectious, and I feel she’ll make for a great performer.”
