12-year-old Janaki Easwer made quite an impression on The Voice Australia, leaving everyone stunned including the judges. The Voice’s iconic blind auditions are happening right now in Australia. Janaki happened to be one of the contestants. The moment she started to sing her own rendition of ‘Lovely’ by Billie Eilish, the crowd went berserk. Currently, she is the youngest singer to audition on The Voice.
Janaki was dressed in a lovely white pattu pavada with a black lace top, representing the culture she came from. Not only that, but she also added Carnatic elements to the song, which clearly became a hit. Rita Ora, Jessica Mauboy, Guy Sebastian and Keith Urban were mind-blown, and all of them pressed the ‘Red Button’. Janaki finally chose to go ahead with Jessica as her head coach. The reaction of her parents, Divya and Anup, was just lovely to see.
In an interview with Janaki Easwar’s parents, her father commented, “This is a huge platform. We’ve seen Janaki showcase her talent ever since she was a kid. Now the whole world can see her talent. We’re really excited.”
Janaki’s mother stated that her daughter has been learning Indian Classical music for quite some time. But her interest in western music was a learning curve for her. Her music has Indian influences and that’s because she was exposed to it as a kid. She knows how to play the violin and has shown interest to learn the guitar. She shared, “Janaki’s coach, David, is responsible for her growth. David was able to convey the faith he had in Janaki to participate in The Voice.“
Janaki Easwer has the talent to even win The Voice. We hope she will be able to do and make the Malayali community proud AF. We’re definitely rooting for her.
