After weeks of riyaaz, eliminations, vote appeals and hard work, Manashi Sahariah from Palak Muchhal’s team finally became the winner of The Voice India Kids Season 2 last night. APart from taking the trophy home, the winner also won Rs 25 lakhs as winning prize. It’s definitely a proud moment for the Assamese singer and her family since she has made everyone proud. Manashi was competing with Shruti Goswami, Shekinah Mukhiya, Guntas Kaur, Nilanjana Roy and Mohammad Fazil for the winning trophy. Manashi comes from a small district in Assam which comprises 300 people. She discovered her passion for singing at the age of 3 when she used to listen to her mother sing.
Manashi worked on her singing skills by watching and listening to online videos since she couldn’t find a trainer. In fact, people from her village gathered funds to send her to Mumbai. Now that’s one heartwarming story you don’t come across every day. Their efforts also paid off well since this little girl ended up winning the show. We hope she gets the required training and keeps singing for the years to come. Palak, who was Manashi’s coach is over the moon and extremely proud of how far Manashi has come.
