Manasi ensures her presence at all stages offering various talent !
For few who may not know, Whitney Houston was her teacher, Manasi says wistfully, “She’s the reason I sing. I grew up singing her songs.” When Neeta LULLA started calling her India’s Whitney Houston, needless to say, the name stuck.
As she grew in the business, learnt fashion and found her on-stage diva, the foreign press, during a world tour gave her the title “pukka Indian JLO”.
Manasi says with gusto; “I sing everything. Make my own music. Create my crazy mashups. But I love the 80s electronica era so I bring that into whatever I’m singing, ballads or rock or pop or Sufi, in any language. Do Tamil and TELEGU playback. Sing in ENGLISH, Hindi and Punjabi fluently.”
And…. its a must mention, she is a passionate DJ and a sparkling performer for Big Fat Indian weddings.
