He is now the brightest star in the British Asian music industry and the pride of the entire diaspora, following his stellar performance at the “UK Welcomes Modi” event on 13th November 2015. Having scored six number one singles, breaking a Guinness World Record and even being invited by the Royal Family to perform for them at St James’s Palace, singer Navin Kundra topped his unique set of impressive achievements as he rocked a crowd of over 60,000 people for the landmark event at Wembley Stadium.
“Dreams do come true. Thank you!” he later tweeted. Not bad for an independent artist who is relatively unknown in India but is amongst the most prominent artists in the UK. He is now making all the right moves towards global stardom and last night’s performance is sure to send him stratospheric. “I wanted to give the crowd a taste of everything. Something retro, something patriotic, something original that I wrote and definitely something crossover”, he said. Indeed, he delivered as a sea of lights held by thousands danced and sang with him.

So where to next? “Bollywood”, he exclaimed, “I think it’s high time I took my voice to India to realise a dream that I’ve carried with me since I was a child. The time is now and I’m looking to work with the right company out there”, he enthused. It’s no wonder he is feeling confident after joining an elite line up with music giants Jay Sean and Kanika Kapoor in Wembley. “Now anything is possible”, he said.
The highlight was Navin singing “Mere Desh Ki Dharti”, an apt song for this type of event. He burst into the song holding an impossibly long note at the opening and cleverly incorporated the Indian Prime Minister’s name into the lyrics to rapturous applause from the 60,000 plus strong crowd.
He also gave a heart warming rendition of his number one hit, “Tere Liye” and finished with a stadium shaking version of A.R. Rahman’s “Jai Ho”. It has been televised worldwide to millions and is gathering countless views online.
18 track album, “The Collection” available from his website at www.navin-online.com. He is now looking to release the album in India with a reputable record label and record for Bollywood.
