Indian singer Hanita Bhambri beat artistes from Australia, Thailand, South Korea, and Taiwan to win ‘Project: Aloft Star Asia Pacific’ – a competition spearheaded by Aloft Hotels in partnership with Universal.
It identifies emerging music talent from around the globe, offering them a chance to kick-start their careers.
“I feel so blessed to be chosen as the ultimate winner. Music has always been a passion of mine and I’m so thankful to Aloft Hotels and Universal Music Group for giving me this opportunity to follow my dreams,” Hanita said in a statement.
Composer Salim Merchant, the face of the India campaign and mentor to Hanita, said: “To perform at a global stage takes a lot of courage but I was confident that Hanita had what it takes.
“Being a songwriter and a great performer, she was always in the running to win. I congratulate Hanita for making India proud.”
