Have you seen this video of a woman singing a rendition of Ed Sheeran’s popular song Shape of You but with a flavour of Carnatic music? Well, Amitabh Bachchan certainly likes and decided to share to it on social media.
Posting the video on Twitter, “My music partner and dear friend sent me this .. I do not know who this is but I can just say “You are a very special talent, God bless you .. keep up the good work .. you have brightened my day in the Hospital like never before. Mixing Karnatak & Western pop.. amazing! Mixing Karnatak and Western pop is not an easy task .. but she has done it with such finesse and aplomb .. there is no compromise on either style .. simply amazing.”
