Chandralekha from Vadaserikkara village in Pathanamthitta district made a foray as a playback singer on Thursday by lending her voice to a duet in ‘Love Story’, a feature film being directed by M Prashant.
The 31-year-old woman, who hogged limelight after a video showing her singing the song from movie ‘Chamayam’ had become a YouTube hit, paired the song composed by newcomer David Shon with Hariharan, a pioneer of Indian fusion music, a two-time national award winner and recipient of Padmashri.
Intially, none took notice of the video showing Chandralekha singing the song ‘Rajahamsame’ with her child in her arms uploaded by her husband’s nephew in YouTube. Those who heard the song did not believe it was original.
After many comments like that appeared in the social networking sites, Chandralekha added her mobile number to the video resulting in a flood of calls from within India and abroad. The video suddenly went viral. In just four days as many as 350,000 people viewed it.
The composers, who heard her voice, came forward with offers to sing in their films. Chandralekha has so far got offers from five composers. She has also an offer to sing for a devotional album being produced by a Trivandrum-based music company.
Shon has taken the credit for initiating Chandralekha into the playback singing by giving the song set aside for Shreya Ghosal, who has made her mark as a leading Indian playback singer by singing in films in Hindi, Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil and Telugu.
Chandralekha, who could not make use of forums available in the state for using her hereditary talent due to the burdens of life, is stunned by the outpouring of love, affection and encouragement.
Talking to reporters after completing the song at a studio in Cochin, the gifted singer said her biggest wish was to see in person K S Chithra, who sang the original song that has transformed her life. Chandralekha had sung the popular song without any instruments, including a microphone.
Chandralekha, wife of Raghunath, wanted to pursue music but the conditions did not allow her to join a music college. Though teachers in the school and college, where she studied, encouraged her, the poverty at home tied her down to her dilapidate house.
Raghunath’s nephew, who heard her singing at home, believed that the world will one day notice her voice. He did his bit by posting her song in the YouTube. It has transformed Chandralekha’s life and may help her fulfil her long-cherished dream to become a playback singer.
