Voice of Powai is a Bollywood Singing Competition. Thomas Gray said:

“Full many a gem of purest ray serene,
The dark unfathomed caves of ocean bear.
Full many a flower is born to blush unseen,
And waste its sweetness in the desert air.”

This is true of many singers.
Everyone is caught up in the busy stream of life and is carried by the currents. Our education, career, family – all these get our first priority and we miss out on our talents. This competition is to find out, nurture and bring to lime light such talented singers.
Voices do their unique character unfold,
They speak of feelings experiences untold.
Mysterious child laughs from realms unknown,
Pathos from depths one never ventures alone.

From kitchen smoke may spring a cheerful note,
A voice languid as a lake while rowing a boat.
Practice may make a singer indeed perfect,
Who said there’s no beauty in being imperfect?

Register and rock Powai with your voice,
Raw or trained, reflecting sorrows or joys,
Believe in yourself, put forward your best foot,
Discover your strength from your core and root.
