Singer, Songwriter Shannon K
12 year old daughter of Bollywood legend Kumar Sanu made her first solo single in May 2014.
Born in India and moved to abroad at the age of 6. She had interest in Music since childhood. She's learned Indian Classical Dance form, Kathak at very tender age and first performed on stage, at 4. She performed dance again, when she was 6, in Bollywood Awards Night , USA.
After moving abroad, she got busy with studies and focused on Music.
Astounding lyrics of the song ["Roll Back The Years"],written by her nine year old sister Annabel is really heart touching. Annabel has interest in writing and she writes lyrics, poems, short stories and plays.
Mixing the influences of English pop music with a dash of Bollywood glamour, the track has the potential to be a real crossover hit – Especially when you consider the story behind it.
Returning home from her London school one day in tears, Ana explained that one of her friends at school was suffering due to her parents recently got separated. She soon channelled this inspiration into a set of lyrics which were put to music by older sister Shannon, with the aim of performing it one day at church or school. However, once their father heard the song, he knew it was strong enough to be discovered!
The result was the heartfelt single ‘Roll Back the Years’, sung by Shannon K and made a debut on May 24th,2012,at the age of 12. Shannon recorded the song when she was 11.
Shannon’s father Kumar Sanu is experienced enough to understand talent and is happy to see his daughter making her own way in the music industry. A glittering career as a vocalist in Bollywood has seen him win a total of many awards including in his native India[Padma Shri-the fourth highest civilian award in TheIndia, 5ConsecutiveFilmfares, Zee Cine,Screen, Stardust, Maximum number of movie songs in one day, Kishore Kumar, RD Burman award and many more) plus internationally (from Sunrise Radio-London, West Indian Academy, Grammy-West Indies, Bollywood Music-U.S.A. and Radio Lotus-South Africa, Limca Book, Proclamation 31st March as Kumar Sanu Day in Ohio, USA and many.]
But perhaps his proudest moment as a father is to hear a song written and performed by his young daughters.
Shannon K is looking forward to her future. She wants to become a Fashion Designer and singin would be more of her hobby. Even If she's destined to be a Singer, she still wants to study Fashion!
