Reality TV star Gurdas Singh, who featured on Brit Asia Superstar 2010 is set to launch his singing career with his much anticipated debut single “Champion”. The single is dedicated to his father who inspired Gurdas to sing from a young age. Gurdas was born in Leeds and brought up in Nottingham. He has never had any formal vocal training, yet surprisingly he possesses a naturally god-gifted voice. From the age of 4, Gurdas began singing in a variety of styles such as Bhangra, Hindi, Qawali, Ghazal and RnB. He also learnt the Tabla at his primary school and sang religious songs at local Sikh temples. He has performed on several stages over the years including talent shows, family functions and private events. “I was always encouraged and supported by family friends and people in the community, but my achievements were disregarded by others who should have supported me. I guess this is one reason for the title, Champion. Because I never gave up.” ~Gurdas Singh
Gurdas, the eldest of three brothers was raised single handily by his mother who endlessly supported his dream. His time on reality show Brit Asia Superstar made him a huge favourite amongst viewers where he demonstrated his impressive vocal skills singing in Bhangra and Qawali styles. The singer-songwriter was raised listening to the likes of the Late Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Hans Raj Hans, Master Saleem, Sabar Koti and Sardool Sikander, all of which have been heavily influential in his singing ability.
Champion has been produced by the highly respected music producer Jeeti Singh. Jeeti, who has also worked with Lakhwinder Wadali, Lembhar Hussainpuri and Danny Sarb has given his musical knowledge and direction to the composition of the track. The emotionally charged song has been written by Gurdas himself, who at the young age of 27 is set to take the industry by storm. “Champion is not about winning an award or accolade. It’s a motivational story which involves a never give up attitude and the overcoming of challenges. It’s a true story based on my personal life experiences, which people can relate to all over the world.” ~Gurdas Singh
Gurdas Singh is already working on his second single which will be a massive collaboration with Punjab’s finest writer, Bunty Bains who has worked with Miss Pooja, Roshan Prince, Jazzy B and Many More. The collaboration is set to release in the next few months.
