Raman Kapoor - I Had A Turning Point In My Life At The Age Of 21 When I Started My Career As A Singer-Musician With Singer Mike Singh (Singer & Musician)



You can't train yourselves purely on the basis of talent because to work or perform more perfectly and effectively you must have much knowledge and experience about that particular area to make you perfect and extraordinary in one particular field.



1.Tell us more about your background and journey.

If I talk about my background and journey so I would like to add the first thing on priority that I started singing when I was just 5 years old as devotional singer. I use to sing songs at Mata Ki Chowki at that time and I also started earning some amount of money from it and at the age of 5 years I perfectly sang "SAREGAMA." When I was in my childhood, I faced a lot struggle just because my family's financial condition is not that much good. I was also learning while I was performed at "Mata Di Chowki" as my father used to teach me. 

At the age of 9 years, I started to play keyboard as I was learning how to play harmonium. At the age of 18 years, I joined a private school as a music teacher and I worked there for around 3 years then I resigned from that school because I started small live shows at several places. Then I have had a turning point in my life at the age of 21 to start my career as a good singer and musician when I met Mika Singh and then I started working with him. Before this I had more turning points in my life as I mentioned below that my family's financial condition is not much strong so we live in a small rented house so I need to earn money as well to do a lot of things so at the age of 26-27 I earned money and made our own house with the help of my father. And after passing through all this hard time I'm here today and launched my latest song "Bahane."




2. When did you first decide you wanted to pursue music and how did you start?

I have keen interest in music since my childhood and it was god gift for me. But when my father gets to know that I have interest in music and I'm blessed with god's gift so then my father decided to teach me music more and make me to pursue music as my career. Sometimes I thought that I would be on a good stage but when this is the most important thing which I don't know at that time and I keep my struggle and learning on with the help of my parents and they never give up on me and I never give up on my passion.



3. Who is your favourite artist and why?

My favourite artist is Mika Singh and I always used to follow him in both the way professionally and personally. Because I'm with him from the age of 21 years and he is very talented with his voice and music. He is also a very supportive and kind-hearted person.



4. Can you throw some light on opportunities one gets as a singer?

There is a lot of different opportunities are available in every field. But if I need to mention the particular about opportunities one gets as a singer so there are many opportunities are also available like being a singer you will have opportunity to travel a lot of different places and you meet a lot of new people. As a singer several times, you get a chance to perform as a lead actor as well.



5. Is format training required or can one train themselves purely on the basis of talent?

As per my experience training is most essential and important part in every field like if you're Doctor, Singer, Music producer, Actor, Teacher, etc. you can't train yourselves purely on the basis of talent because to work or perform more perfectly and effectively you must have much knowledge and experience about that particular area to make you perfect and extraordinary in one particular field. So, training and learning are two most important things.



6. What piece of advice would you like to give to future and aspiring artists?

My main advice to all aspiring artists and all people out there is that you have be patient about everything because every good thing takes time to be good and perfect. And secondly it’s that you have to be clear about your goals and what actually you're doing and is it going on the right way as per your plans. 

If yes then is perfect great but it is not going according to your plans you must have to work on it in the right way and have to make it perfect. Last and most important thing I want to tell everyone out there that never feel demotivated and keep doing hard work to achieve your targeted goals don't worry about the results.



7. Which is your favourite book and why?

To be very honest I'm not a book lover but if I get chance to read any book someday definitely, I love to read books which are based on music.
