Singer Ankit Tiwari, one of Bollywood’s most talented musicians, has swayed music lovers with his soulful renditions. Considered a global superstar, Tiwari is set to close 2017 in the same way as he began the year – by topping the charts.

‘Sunn Raha Hai’ from Aashiqui 2 marked the arrival of Ankit Tiwari, and since then, there has been no looking back for the versatile singer. Aashiqui 2 brought him to the notice of several music composers, including those who would give him ‘Galliyan’ a year later.

Ankit has given us some of the most beautiful melodies that will never lose their charm. One of the most popular live performers, Ankit also has several sold-out shows to his name, played at prominent venues around the world.

The multitalented artist is known for experimenting with his music, giving them a unique touch. The studio version of Ankit’s album is totally different from what he performs at live music events. He completely alters the range and feel of the song that keep his fans in awe. The MTV Unplugged performances by the singer is just one such example of how much effort the singer puts into his every melody.

A trained singer, Ankit Tiwari improvises every song when he picks the mic up to mesmerize the audience with his magical voice. He does not shy away from performing numbers that are already performed by popular singers. At live concerts, Ankit takes the audience through his favorite playlist by crooning the most amazing songs. In fact, his playlist is as wonderful as his own songs.

During his recent live concert at Bannu School Ground, Dehradun, Ankit not only sang his own songs, but also crooned songs from movies like Airlift, Sultan and Dil Chahta Hai. He also chose to sing some evergreen memorable hits, such as Pyar Deewana Hota Hai, Lag Ja Gale, among other classics.

Performing in front of a live audience is the true test of a good singer, which Tiwari has excelled. While the music industry has transformed due to the technological advancements, it seems like Ankit is happy to be part of the evolution of contemporary music.

Ankit Tiwari has become the voice of his generation. But despite reaching the highest of notes, the singer-music director has his feet planted on the ground.
