On 21st March 1996, at the age of 12, a girl sang 400 songs without stopping for
12 hours. This earned her a place in the Limca Book Of Records, and her parents,
lots of pride. So much that the father has, since then, made it a point to organize
a novel performance by her on every birthday of her's, the 23rd of February. This
year, the 16-year-old youngster is on to bigger things than celebrating birthdays
- she's going for a 5-day cultural festival in Aurangabad. And so, we have the
program a couple of weeks ahead of normal schedule.
Vinnakoti Revathi has already given 1,500 light music programs (lalita geyalu
- non-film, non-devotional songs), ever since she started singing on stage
at the age of 8. And now she's entering the film field. This evening will see
her do 10+1 songs of Lata Mangeshkar, the first 10 being assorted ones from the
years 1960 to 1999, and the last being the famous patriotic song Ae Mere Watan
Revathi was awarded the title Swara Kinnera by Shilpa Art Creations, and
has so far received 15 awards from various cultural organizations in the city.
In 1996, at the age of 12, she had also released a solo album titled "Chinnari
Andalu" through Magnasound. Her felicitators include Atal Behari Vajpayee,
who, in 1996, honored her with the Alluri Sitaramaraju Youth Talent award along
with 9 other artists. She was also the 1st runner-up in the TVS Saregama show,
and was awarded a Swarna Kankanam by Vooyala Communications. Don't all
these make you want to check her out?
