Finally we arrive in Birmingham where the concert is about to begin. Starting off with Shreyas warm up act and what a start he made singing songs like ‘Mitwa’ from ‘Khabi Alvida Naa Kehna’ along with a live band which was spread across the stage. An astounding amount of instruments filled the background of the stage. After an anticipated wait the stunning Noreen Khan invites the beautiful Shreya Ghoshal on stage. Pin drop silence in the room while her band begin the introduction for the first song. All of a sudden a sweet delicate but pitch perfect voice began to sing and low and behold the princess of Hindi music graced the stage with her first song from ‘Bodyguard -Teri Meri’. Shreya wore a vibrant green and pink Anarkali suit which flowed graciously along with every step she took. The crowd was simply stunned.
Shreya then stopped before carrying on to her next song and spoke to her audience to thank them for success and for being here this evening. She got involved with the crowd as if they were her friends making each and every person feel as if they know her personally. She then went into singing some of her all time famous songs such as ‘Tere Mast Mast Doh Nahin’, ‘Tujh Mein Rab Dikhta Hai’, ‘Saans’, ‘Teri Ore’ ‘Mash Allah’, that is just to name a few. She then continued to get the audience involved with her concert which added a sense of how humble she is. After an hour and quarter of singing she took a break. What a first half of the concert that was. I was eagerly awaiting the second half to begin.
