“Like many of you, I pursued my Engineering in Chennai without even knowing why I took Electricals as my specialisation.
Singing was my passion, and I always dreamt of being a professional singer someday.
Adding to my interest, my family supported and encouraged me to improve my skills. With so much dedication from my childhood, I used to participate in every singing audition from different channels and areas.
After I lost my dad, I drove my life in a way to accomplish something big and better. But meanwhile, I did not stop looking out for opportunities in music.
However, I got a call for anchoring shows and started taking up anchoring for a year. I have been hosting shows since my 3rd year of UG.
Everybody will undergo a turning point, and when I had mine, I grabbed the situation even tighter.
Once, one of the kids in my family was invited as a speaker at an event. To encourage the little boy, we all, as a family, travelled with him. Before commencing the show, I noticed a troop getting ready to demonstrate their voices.
As expected, my family pushed me to take a step and sing with them. However, I was a little hesitant. Finally, a disabled man near the stage shouted out to the troop about my interest in singing, and that moment was unforgettable. ‘On The Streets of Chennai’ crew members called me up and offered me a chance to showcase my talent. My passion journey began from then on!
I left the stage with a bang!
To date, I’ve performed for 150+ street shows. My passion for singing continued everywhere, providing happiness to older people and young teens. Our motto was to spread music to every corner of the city and make everyone vulnerable to music.
Reboot was started with a vision to outstretch the positivity of music and its vibe around. The band is loaded with IT employees who love to contribute a couple of days for their passion.
We have around 400 singers and musicians in collaboration with the On The Streets of Chennai community. Each soul here works somewhere else all weekday, and we play around with our passion on weekends. So we build a community stronger and contribute to the souls around us with tunes.
I wasn’t allowed to sing songs in my college during my graduation. And now, I was invited as a chief guest by the same college. I, with my band, was asked to perform a show at my college – the moment where I felt I was on the right track!”
