One of the talking points of this season has been A.R.Rahman's concert in Chennai on the 29th of December. The concert titled "Thai Manne Vanakkam" is being organized at the Nehru Indoor Stadium and will be telecasted by a major television channel. As a part of the program, the organizers are planning to conduct a talent hunt and pick out five winners to perform during the show with ARR himself.
"We have conducted auditions in Trichy, Coimbatore and Madurai. We have short listed 40 contestants so far. Ten singers will be given a chance to rock the stage with the maestro. The contestants are below 15 years of age. It will be a golden opportunity for the kids to perform with the legendary musician" said Boophthy, who will be hosting the live event.
This might be a great chance for young and talented singers to showcase their skills and get picked by ARR for his concert. With any luck, they could just become the next Karthik or Naresh Iyer.
