Pravin Saivi is a musician from Singapore who came into the limelight after he competed on Vijay TV’s Airtel Super Singer 3. He won the titles of "Best Entertainer" and "Best Overseas Contestant" during his time on the singing reality show, and has performed at a number of prestigious festivals including the Singapore Arts Festival.
He began singing at the age of 9, and in 2002 came second in Singapore’s National Tamil Singing competition. He is currently working on his debut album, and has also recorded for some upcoming Tamil and Telugu films.
Recently, he uploaded a cover of the beautiful "Isaiyil Thodanguthamma" from Kamal Haasan’s 2000 film, "Hey Ram". Composed and written by Ilaiyaraaja, the original version was sung by Ajoy Chakrabarty. We’re loving Pravin’s unplugged version of this melodious ballad:
Below is the video for his debut international Tamil pop single "En Payanam." We hope to see more of this talented Singaporean musician in the near future! His tracks are available for download by clicking here, and 50% of sales go to the charity CARE.
