As well as starring in Footloose last year and winning this year’s Best Solo Singer trophy at Inter House Music, Kharesma Ravichandran has been topping the charts for Tamil songs in India.
Kharesma has already sung songs for three Tamil movies and is currently working on a fourth, as well as singing in adverts. Her first song, Yaen Ennai, from the film Yennai Arindhaal, reached No. 1 in the iTunes India chart. Her biggest hit so far, Kadhal Cricket, from the 2015 movie Thani Oruvan, has almost 4 million views on YouTube and was the Number One Tamil song on radio stations in South India. At the end of last year she sung Party with the Pei, the promotional song for Aranmanai 2, which was No. 1 in the iTunes India chart for 9 weeks.
Kharesma is due to take her Grade 8 Singing examination this year, having received Distinction in Grade 7 when she was only 13. After attending stage school when she was living in England, she is also a veteran of over twenty major shows and productions, as well as appearing in the CBBC series Numberjacks. Kharesma is currently revising hard for her IGCSE exams. After A Level, she plans to study criminal law, but hopes to keep singing as well.<< Back
