Singer Jency - Back with a bang

IndiaGlitz [Wednesday, September 17, 2008]

For many reasons, the 1980s is considered to be the golden age of Tamil Film Music and one of the voices that was an integral part of that age was the exquisite voice of Jency.

As time the weary traveler plodded on, the singer found herself married with children and settled down in Thiruvananthapuram. Her musical career took the back seat as her family became her priority. Even then, according to sources close to her, she had the thirst to continue singing. As luck would have it, the singer got a call from Maestro Illayaraja for a song. The elated Jency prepared to come to Chennai immediately for the recording. Unfortunately, one of her children fell ill and that delayed the singer's arrival to Chennai. Despite being late, Jency went over to the recording studio but was met with cold shoulders.

The disappointed singer in an interview to a magazine had stated her desire to sing and that she was still hopeful that Illayaraja would call her again.

Srikanth Deva read this interview and decided to give the talented singer a break in one of the movies that he was composing for. This gesture has come as a benediction for Jency. John Mahendran, son of legendary director Mahendran is directing this film.

After the song recording was over, both director and music director were heard saying that even after all these years Jency's voice had not aged.

The talented songster with many indelible numbers also expressed her aspiration to sing for 'Mozart of Madras' A.R.Rahman who was a keyboardist then with Ilayaraja during his heydays. 

It would be a mammoth pleasure not only for Jency but also for all the Tamil music buffs if she gets to sing and recreate the same magic with Rahman and other contemporaries too as she did in the 80s.
