Budding singers are welcome but none can match legends: Malik
Mumbai, May 30 (PTI) Even as there are a number of
budding artistes, there is no match for veteran Indian singers
like Lata Mangeshkar or Mohammed Rafi, noted musician Anu
Malik has said.
"There can never be another Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Kishore Kumar and Mohammed Rafi...they are in different league. No one can be like them. Nobody can reach their level.
I cannot explain the phenomenon of these legendary people," Malik said.
The musician, however, is hoping to find another singer who will have a unique voice through the popular reality TV show 'Indian Idol', entering its sixth season with launch on June 1.
"We are looking at the voice of a singer. It has to be unique...something that is their own," said Malik, who is a judge on the show.
"This year's Indian Idol will leave everyone in shock with the kind of talent it is going to showcase," Malik said.
For the sixth season of Indian Idol, the tone of the promos is based on catch phrase 'Har idol ke peeche hote hain naa jane kitne idol' (behind every idol, there are many other idols as well).
The promos of 'Indian Idol 6' show heart warming stories of the journey of a budding singer and sacrifices made by his near and dear ones.
"I don't think we are biased...we do feel and get emotional looking at the journey, sacrifices and struggle of the singer or his or her parents. But overall we do look at the quality of voice...all we are looking for is great singers," Malik said. .
