As well as his newly adoring public, the industry as a whole has been enraptured by San2’s stunning vocals, with TV and radio presenters, artists and even Bollywood music legend ‘Shaan’ spreading the word and sending messages of support.
The young star, who has been singing since the age of 5, has been left astounded at the acclaim, and says of his new found popularity:
“It all feels like a dream. This time last week I was sitting at home nervously wondering how people would react to the track. I have been amazed and humbled by the love that everyone has shown me. I just want to thank everyone for giving me a chance to sing and share my love of music with them.”
San2 is the first artist to be signed to the newly formed Virtual Recordz Label, headed by Music PR guru Raj Ghai, who says of his first signing:
