Also thanks to the organizers.</div><div><br></div><div>A bit about my Grand Finale performance:</div><div>Bésame Mucho" ("Kiss me a lot") is a song written in 1940 by Mexican songwriter Consuelo Velázquez. A famous version is sung by Trio Los Panchos.</div><div>It is one of the most famous boleros, and was recognized in 1999 as the most sung and recorded Mexican song in the world.</div><div>The song appeared in the film Follow the Boys (5 May 1944) when it was played by Charlie Spivak and his Orchestra and in Cowboy and the Senorita (13 May 1944) with vocal by Dale Evans.<br></div><div>According to Velázquez herself, she wrote this song even though she had never been kissed yet at the time, and kissing, as she heard, was considered a sin.</div><div>She was inspired by the piano piece "Quejas, o la Maja y el Ruiseñor", from the 1911 suite Goyescas by Spanish composer Enrique Granados, which he later also included as "Aria of the Nightingale" in his 1916 opera of the same name.</div>


<div>Hi everyone,</div><div>This is my submission for the Grand Finale of MusicStar, an acapella version of Mamma Mia originally sung by ABBA. </div><div>Since it was challenged to come up with a unique and a creative concept for the final, I did some background research </div><div>on current trends. After shortlisting all options, I decided to make an acapella for an the song Mamma Mia. I chose this song because I watched the Mamma Mia 2 movie and loved their version of the song and the energy it represented. Because I love to sing in other languages, I found the Spanish version and thought of mixing the two together.  So my final concept was to make an English-Spanish mixed acapella of </div><div>Mamma Mia song.</div><div>I, alongside with my production team, started on making the track and it seemed pretty impressive at the demo stage, in which we managed to pull out a decent product. After exerting considerable amount of time, yet under 5 days we managed to complete and submit the track. We didn't use any instruments and all the sounds were created by me and my team. It wasn't a simple task but we are really happy with the outcome.</div><div><br></div><div>Ambitions : </div><div>It has been my childhood dream to make it to the music industry because I always wanted to do something that I enjoyed. And another dream that I have is to perform In my school auditorium (Girls' high school, Kandy). In 2017 I came to Colombo for my higher studies and got the chance to get to know Panchala Fernando & Sanjeewa De Silva, who were already paving their way in the music industry. I did some covers and mashups with them. We received some recognition over the mashups. </div><div>I further wish to continue to create unique music, make an influential impact to the society and to make my parents and my country proud by doing what I love.</div><div><br></div><div>Interesting Facts:</div><div><br></div><div>I'm mostly recognized for my ability to sing in different languages. I grew up listening to my mother and sisters sing, who were very talented in singing.</div><div><br></div><div>Credits : </div><div>I would like to give my gratitude towards the people who helped me out during journey of MusicStar. Namely, Sanjeewa De Silva and Kasun Gomis who did the music production, and I wish to convey my heartiest thanks to Panchala Fernando whom spent his valuable time tirelessly with his guidance and directing the whole production in making it a success. Last but not least, my family whom has been an immense strength in every which way. I would like to make this an opportunity to thank the MusicStar Team for organizing an event of this scale and giving the opportunity for musician like us.</div><div>A big thanks to all the followers, supporters and for the people whom voted me through to the finals. </div><div><br></div><div>Cheers!</div>


~ Despacito (Cover) | Nirmani Nayanathara ~ * This is a #cover song created with the combination of Original #Despacito Song Version (by Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi featuring Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee) and the Despacito Remix (featuring Justin Bieber) Version. * A Reggae Touch is given to the Cover Song. * This is my first #Spanish song cover. Being a #Sri #Lankan #girl, using #Sinhala language as the mother tongue, I think I did my best to get familiar with the Spanish accent used in the #song along with the #rap and to pronounce the lyrics well. * I hope you'll find this interesting and give your precious vote, Thank You....! :)
