Sunidhi Chauhan is one of the most popular Indian playback singers and performers today, best known for her Hindi film songs in Bollywood. Here she sings DJ from Hey Bro.
A playback singer is a singer whose singing is pre-recorded for use in movies. Playback singers record songs for soundtracks, and actors or actresses lip-sync the songs for cameras, while the actual singer does not appear on screen.
Playback singing is not as common in contemporary Hollywood. It was, however, more widely used in the past. Notable Hollywood performances include Marni Nixon in West Side Story for Natalie Wood’s character (she also did dubbings in The King and I and My Fair Lady).
Chauhan has also recorded songs in several other Indian dialects and languages, making her one of the most recorded voices in India today with over 3000 studio recordings. Chauhan made her International debut with the song ‘Heartbeat’ (Indian Mix), a collaboration with Enrique Iglesias. She has been awarded with prestigious national awards on several occasions and has established herself as the strongest live performer and singer in India to date.
Legendary Lata Mangeshkar stated that Chauhan is Numero Uno singer of this generation ahead of her contemporaries. Award winning composer and singer Shankar Mahadevan has stated on many occasions that Chauhan is the best female singer live-performer in India today.
By the age of nineteen, Chauhan had lent her voice to over 350 songs. Chauhan also loves western music and cites Mariah Carey and Michael Jackson as her inspirations. She is known for her admiration of international divas Celine Dion and Whitney Houston. – Wikipedia
