10-year-old girl releases Tamil song on YouTube, enters MBR
Recently, 10-year-old Thanisya Rethina Naidu made it into the Malaysia Book of Records (MBR) for being the youngest to release a Tamil single on YouTube.
Her single, Paravai Pol (Like A Bird) was recorded last September and uploaded in March.
The song is about children who are fascinated by technology and aim to re-establish their connection to the simple joys of life such as nature, technology and music.
"I have always wanted to release my own song after watching many talent shows on TV. My mother constantly motivates me too. So when Malaysian composer/musician Ashok Kumar approached me and offered me the opportunity to release a single, without thinking, I said yes," said Thanisya, who studies at a private school in Subang Jaya, Selangor.
The song was penned by Ashok and produced by Infinite Musical Studio in Shah Alam, Selangor.
Looking ahead, Thanisya has ambitious plans in the field of music.
"I would like to come up with my own album and another single on Carnatic music. I do like to sing English songs too, if I get the opportunity."
Her parents, teacher Yogeswary Moorthy, 40, and businessman Rethina Naidu, 44, are proud of their only child's achievement and described her as a hardworking and determined child.
