Little Nevaan Nigam’s turning out to be a regular chip off the old block. At three, Bollywood rocker Sonu Nigam‘s son has already cut his first song. And, that too with the Voice of India – Lata Mangeshkar herself!
The story goes that Lataji approached Sonu and asked him if Nevaan would conclude a song on her new album by performing a Sargam. This, those into singing and Hindustani classical music will know, is far more difficult than just singing or reciting words.
But Sonu, who himself has contributed and sang alongside Lataji on the new album, immediately agreed. And the singer is now brimming with pride and joy because the songstress Lata Mangeshkar posted on her Twitter account that:
my fav. singers, sonu niigaam and his son nevaan

Sonu told reporters, “I believe that Nevaan is truly blessed. To be asked by Lataji to sing with her at this young age is in itself a great honour. Her compliment to Nevaan even tops all the ones that I’ve got through my entire career.”
Nevaan isn’t formally being trained as a singer yet. “But he’s an intelligent child and grasped every Sur very quickly. He has a good music sense,” said the proud father. “When we taught him the Sargam, the incentive we gave him was the opportunity to sing on the mike. Nevaan was eager enough!”
News Update: This song is released on April 6th 2011, which have a Sargam by Nevaan Nigam at end of the song.
