Outstanding Achivement

Congratulations to our student Sunidhi Srinivas who had the honor of singing “America the Beautiful”, a patriotic song, at the 2019 US Open Tennis Championship in New York. She was selected from 350 singers via a nationwide audition.

Sunidhi says “By drawing from my Carnatic Classical learning experience with Shankar Mahadevan Academy, I was able to significantly embellish my rendition of ‘America the Beautiful’ at the 2019 US Open.”

Shankar Mahadevan's message to Sunidhi: "Congratulations Sunidhi - what a mind blowing performance! Your talent, dedication and hard work has got you here and I wish you many more successes to come. This is truly a gratifying and soul satisfying moment! Heartiest congratulations to the teachers who've guided you along in this journey. Keep singing!"
