Sonu Nigam ‘Felt’ His Mother While Composing Hanuman Chalisa Music Video
MUMBAI, (IANS) – Padma Shri awardee and playback singer Sonu Nigam recently launched the music video of Shri Hanuman Chalisa. The singer shared that he would feel the presence of his mother while working on the track.
With this music video featuring Sonu Nigam, the audience gets to experience a new version of the devotional hymn praising Lord Hanuman with unique video effects. The track was released simultaneously on more than 50 YouTube channels, making it the first ever such track in the history of a music asset launch.
Walking down the memory lane, Sonu Nigam said: “It was my mother who in my childhood insisted that I visit a temple every Tuesday and recite the Hanuman Chalisa. She was the one who inculcated in me the spirit of reverence to one super consciousness represented by multiple faiths. I, being a mother’s boy, did obey her always and thus Hanuman Chalisa became an integral part of my life.”
“When I sat down to compose it, I could feel my mother streaming down the composition and the arrangements spiritually. It was like magic. This is my tribute to my mother, the beautiful ‘Sanskars’ of Hinduism that I was born to, the Great Saint Tulsidas Goswami and our beautiful Motherland Mother India,” the singer added.
