Mamta Sharma –
I am proud to be an Indian playback singer. With scintillating hit numbers under my kitty like Munni Badnam Hui and Tinku Jiya, I continued to awe-inspire my audience with effortless singing and pulsating stage performances.
Born in Gwalior, I was tamed young girl of 10 years old yet full of dreams, and passion for singing. My mother was pursuing her Bachelors in Music, while she was also learning singing from her tutor. Her dedication and devotion towards music inspired me to achieve all my life goals.
In my early childhood days, another major motivation that I got was from watching ‘Chitrahaar’ – a television program on DD National featuring Bollywood song clips. I used to practice the soulful songs of yesteryears. At the age of 10, a heart-wrenching incident took place, and my father passed away. In the midst of sorrow and grief, I struggled to come to terms with my loss. After completing my studies from Saint Paul's School Morar Gwalior, I decided to shift to Mumbai in a pursuit of happiness.
In the city of dreams, I was pursuing higher education degree from Nalanda College, Juhu. Simultaneously, I began my aspiration to build my singing career. By performing at various stage shows in Mumbai and several other parts of the country. After the much long struggle, my voice caught the attention of a famous music director Lalit Pandit, who gave me my first break in the super hit movie, Dabangg.
Surprisingly, Munni Badnam Hui shortly after its release became a smashing hit and popular chartbuster. Within months, I was the next singing sensation, with a large number of fans following seeking to click selfies and take autographs. Indeed, this was an overwhelming moment of my life!
Besides singing for Bollywood, I had lent my voice to many Bengali, Kannada, Tamil, and Telugu albums. Whether singing for the hit song Kevvu Keka in the Telugu remake of Dabangg, Gabbar Singh, Naa Board Irada Bus in the Kannada movie Hudugaru or my latest A For Apple from Jaya Janaki Nayaka – I took every challenge and turned them into a new opportunity.
The legendary singing maestros, Asha Bhosle, Uma Devi, and Shamshad Begum are my singing inspirations. Listening to their songs and style definitely, stirs a soulful string inside of me. With several years of practice, I have developed a compelling, seductive, and intense voice. I have managed to pull the right chords with my unique singing style and I wish to continue inspiring people with my groovy numbers.
