- Shekinah is a contestant of Voice India Kids
- She's part of Himesh Reshammiya's team on the show
- "I was nervous as well as excited in the audition rounds," she says
The young prodigy has been humming and singing rhymes from an early age - from when she saw her father, a self-taught singer, perform on stage. His love for music was passed on to Shekinah.
Now back in her favourite city Dehradun, which she says, 'is greener than Mumbai,' Shekinah is on a much-deserved break doing what anyone her age would do. Besides singing, the young singer likes to write short stories and spend quality time with her younger brother Enosh while her mother, Deera, is an English teacher at a private school in Dehradun.
One of the most unforgettable moments of Voice India Kids for Shekinah is when she adorably imitated Himesh Reshammiya - one of the coaches on the show - and was cheered on for it.
With a penchant for jazz and blues when it comes to music, the father-daughter duo have been an instant hit, with her fan following growing by the day. "Just yesterday, she received a hamper from her fans in Maharashtra," says a beaming father, who plans to train his daughter in the field of theatre and music in the future.
Deera and Mark are proud parents and rightly so, "For us she has already won the show. To have come as far as she did out of so many talented kids is in itself a big thing. She has shown us and everyone else what she is capable of attaining."
