The voice that has launched countless hits, Arijit Singh is among Bollywood’s most popular and talented playback singers. After achieving phenomenal success, winning numerous awards and a following of thousands, the singer is hungry for more. Today, Arijit has a hit song in almost every recent film but he feels he hasn’t realized his complete potential. His fabulous range includes soulful melodies to foot-tapping dance numbers and he is often the first choice for music composers for any kind of song. The gifted vocalist doesn’t want to rest on his laurels and wants to sing in different languages and styles
Currently, on a nation-wide tour produced by Wizcraft, Arijit has wowed audiences at every musical concert. The singer loves performing live as he is able to connect directly with his listeners. His performances are peppered with unusual improvisations and lot of spontaneous interactions with members of the audience. Arijit feels that while recording a song in a studio requires a meditative state to achieve perfection, live singing is liberating. If the audience reaction at his concerts is anything to go by, Arijit surely knows how to touch a chord with each listener.
At just 30, the singer may have achieved unparalleled success but his journey has been uphill. After training in Hindustani classical music, Arijit came to Mumbai with dreams. He got noticed at a few music reality shows but the chance to sing playback for a Bollywood film eluded him. To make ends meet, Arijit turned to musical programming and became a music producer for composers such as Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Vishal-Shekhar, and Pritam. He developed a good rapport with composer Mithoon who gave him his first hit song. But it was with the success of Aashiqui 2 that Arijit came into the limelight and since then there has been no looking back. Seven years after his debut and dozens of hits later, the singer is still pushing the envelope and yearning to learn more.
