Kushal Kar was the title winner of ‘Voice of Adelaide‘ organized by Colordot and Beats Adelaide. This popular Indian musical reality show was held at Woodville Townhall, Adelaide in South Australia.
Kushal, who is originally from Kolkata in India, migrated to Australia in 2015. He told The Australia Today that although he was born in Kolkata most of his professional life was spent in Mumbai where he took music and singing training under well-known guru Waqar Khan.
“I have been singing since childhood, you can say I was born with great music around me! My mother used to sing Rabindra Sangeet and also encouraged me to take formal training in Indian classical music. When I moved to Mumbai for work, I thought of expanding my music pool with ghazals and Bollywood-style singing.”
Out of the 54 shortlisted contestants and several live singing elimination rounds since September 2021, Kushal stood out with his versatile vocals. He sang evergreen Bollywood songs which received accolades from both the esteemed panel of judges and a round of applause from the audience.
Kushal says that winning such a contest is not easy but his versatility and years of training helped him get an edge over other contestants. He feels “grateful to the team of VoA, judges, all the co-contestants, his supporters, friends, and family for their unconditional support and encouragement.” Kushal proudly adds:
“A special shout out to my colleague and friend Tarun Rajani and my guruji Sri Waqar Khan.”
With this win, Kushal is looking forward to entertaining Bollywood music lovers in Australia and also abroad.
