GANGTOK, 22 Aug: This year’s season of India’s Got Talent will feature Sikkim’s 11-year-old Deep Raj Rai. This talented young singer, of whom many here may not be aware of, is from Lumsey near Tadong.
Deep Raj gained wide appreciation for his performance at the month-long musical event, Glimpses of Sikkimese Culture organized at MG Marg in the month of June by the Cultural Affairs & Heritage Department [CA&HD].
So when representatives of Colors Television approached the Culture Department in July to recommend talent from the state for the reality show, it was not a very difficult choice to make.
CA&HD Culture Officer, Lata Rajalim informs that a singer of the Song & Drama unit of the department, Yadav Sunam, brought Deep Raj to present his songs at the musical event held at MG Marg. The department made arrangements to shoot an audition video with Singyi Cham, Nepali, Lepcha and Bhutia dances and songs by Deep Raj Rai at Rumtek in East Sikkim on 26 and 27 July, she informed.
After watching this video, the channel confirmed his participation in the show and promos featuring Deep Raj are already being aired, she added.
Ms Rajalim expressed that with Deep Raj getting a chance to share his talent with the rest of the country, the aim of Glimpses of Sikkimese Culture organized by the department to provide a platform to local talents has borne fruit. She also thanked the CA & HD Secretary, Nalini G Pradhan, for her support in encouraging hidden talents in the state.
Deep Raj has also performed on the occasion of World Music Day and during the inauguration function of Mannan Bhawan, where he impressed all with his performance, it was informed.
 “Deep Raj is god gifted, who sings so well without any training at such a young age which will improve further as he matures. He has immense potential to excel in his field,” said Ms Rajalim. With a voice that belies his age, Deep Raj belts out numbers sung by Kailash Kher and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan with ease.
The India’s Got Talent episode featuring Deep Raj is scheduled to be aired on 22 September on Colors Television
