SHE EATS, drinks and breathes music. Harshdeep Music Arora, the new kid on the singing front, has a sparkle in her eyes, dollops of zest and a golden voice.
A teenager studying at New Delhi's Springdale's School on Pusa Road, she used to take part in various inter and intra school competitions .The big break came in the form of the Music Television Radio Ga Ga contest in 2001. Full of spirit, she recorded her music video and sent it across to MTV. In the contest judged by the likes of Jatin-Lalit, Javed Akhtar and Shubha Mudgal, Harshdeep emerged victorious. The prize package was a trip to England to meet Boyzone lead singer Ronan Keating and a music album.
Harshdeep has her hands full with anchoring two music-based programmes "Fankaar" and "Aakkar Bakkar Bamba Bo" on ETV, learning the piano from the Delhi School of Music and concentrating on academics and her future profession, music. "I want to take up music as a career but only after I graduate. Till then I will try to maintain a balance between the two."
Her new album "Romantica" is a combination of Hindi, Punjabi and English music beats with Urdu lyrics. "Romantica" reflects many shades of love. The music caters to all generations of people. There are two remixed songs and upbeat numbers. The song "Tu Mila" and "Lambi Judaai" have been made into music videos. Two other music videos of the songs "Roothe Ho Tum" and "Ghungroo" will hit the small screen next month," she elucidates.
Having sung a song for the film "Aapko Pehle Bhi Kahin Dekha Hai" and two numbers for the forthcoming film "Oops", she is determined to go `ga ga' all the way.
