My Music. MY world.

*new* My Audition with A R Rahman Had the honor to be selected for a one-on-one audition with A R Rahman as part of his North America Talent Hunt. It was a distinct privilege to be able to sing for my musical inspiration and idol, and one of the most established musicians of our time.
