LIVE IN CONCERT
Navin graced the stage with his legendary countdown entrance and had the building soaring with cheers as he took centre stage! The crowd went wild as he performed his major hits such as Tere Liye, Mehbooba and Shudaayi with the amazing Dilkash Band and the Nateshwar Dance Academy! Navin brought cheers and tears to our eyes. He is well-known for his tribute to legends such as Kishore Kumar, Mohammad Rafi and more. Navin‘s tribute segment is called ‘Voice of Legends’. It left so many welling up with tears. So many supporters sang along and reminisced on their past and loved ones. It was such a beautiful , memorable moment.
Navin has this vibrant energy that lights up the room. His passion for music echoes in his voice and killer dance moves. We had the privilege of finding out exactly what he loves about performing. When asked about his passion for music, Navin shared that he wants people to feel at ease when he performs. He wants all the stress of life to float away and for everyone to celebrate themselves in that very moment. What a beautiful thought. It was so evident by the continuous smiles on fans faces that they were in the moment and not allowing their personal realities to disrupt the moment.
The concert was extremely memorable as it included guest of honour, Kamlesh Khanna Makan – sister of Rajesh Khanna. Kamlesh ji shared her most memorable moments regarding her brother and showed her gratitude towards Navin for keeping Rajesh Khanna alive in his music! Navin was also accompanied by Shay Ramji for a Tujh Mein Rab Dikhta Hai duet and more! Not to mention, the Careless Whisper suggestion from a fan! Who would’ve thought Mr Kundra would have a soothing George Michael moment, it was a pleasant surprise!
