About 2 months back, Smitha Passanha informed me about a tribute that Sonu Niigaam was organizing for Michael Jackson and that he was looking for singers to participate in this effort. I sent in one of my MJ covers (Beat It) and ended up being one among the intial 6 chosen singers. I was thrilled to say the least and at the same time extremely humbled.
This project is a true testimonial to the fact that the world is shrinking thanks to the Internet. The vocalists were spread all over the world (Canada/US/UK/India) and each of us recorded our vocals remotely and sent it in. The song and the video was then compiled and mixed by the team.
The whole experience was just mind blowing and definitely the biggest project I have been part of thus far! The whole team did such a great job in every respect!!! Special thanks to Sonu for envisioning this project and more importantly following through on it and coming up with a truly fitting tribute to MJ!!
