Evelyn Sharma sings her way...on foreign shores
Mumbai: Actress Evelyn Sharma has made her singing debut internationally with an number, which is not indie-pop in nature, but a part of the alternative genre - less commercial and more music. She says she`s always been passionate about singing.
"I`m very excited as singing is something I have always been passionate about. I would sing casually all the time but never imagined actually having to work on a collaboration for an international album," Evelyn said in a statement.
"The whole experience of recording the song, shooting the music video was very exciting. Now I hope that when the song comes out in a few weeks people fall in love with it," she added.
Evelyn was encouraged by her friends to consider singing commercially, and it all fell into place when she got a chance via Indo-American rapper, Brooklyn Shanti for an album.
Brooklyn met Evelyn on the sets of "From Sydney With Love", a movie for which Brooklyn composed music. That`s where Brooklyn discovered Evelyn`s singing prowess, said a source.
Evelyn not just lent her voice to the song titled "Something beautiful", but also penned it. It speaks about herself and her journey. The song is meant to be a motivation for others to believe in themselves.
The album is slated for release in August release and its video has been shot in New York. Evelyn, who, as a teen used to sing for her church choir, will be seen sporting designer gowns in the music video.
