Neval brings exciting fusions to ‘Rising Stars

Thursday, September 30 2010

HE HAS the honour of being the winner of the popular, long-standing, Mastana Bahar competition in 2006. However, Neval Chatelal will now look to conquer another stage — the 2010 Digicel Rising Stars. He will aim to achieve his goal, with what he thinks is a good strategy – performing renditions that feature a fusion of musical genres, that he hopes will get the attention of the judges and the voting public.

The 26-year-old Calibration Technician with the Caribbean Airlines, hails from Carapichima and says he’s been singing since age six and is fascinated with most styles of music. That “fascination” was evident when he combined R&B artiste Jay Sean’s “Do You Remember” with Andre Bocelli’s “Conte Partiro”. This trend will continue, should he garner enough votes to make it to the next round but then again Neval is accustomed to living on the edge, he was a Wild Card entry in the competition.

Neval said: “I felt blessed to be given another opportunity to be back on the show and another chance to win the hearts of the viewers.”

The former Presentation College, Chaguanas student is also very much in awe of the whole Digicel Rising Stars production. He sees it as a whole new level in reality television. With enthusiasm he comments, “This is a big production. It’s all bright lights, cameras and professionals who know what they’re doing.”

Neval, also understands that while talent is a persuasive factor at the end of the day, it will come down to votes. He is therefore leaving nothing to chance and is marketing himself on Facebook and distributing flyers at various malls and in his community.

However, he will have little convincing to do when it comes to his close-knit circle of supporters, which include his parents, cousins and many friends. He says they love and support him, even through his warm-up sessions that may be a little annoying, since he hums Indian classical music very loudly and taps his feet.

Should he win the prestigious Digicel Rising Stars title, the young man who can also boast of being a sitar player, plans to use the $100,000 as a personal scholarship to obtain his BA in Music at the University of Trinidad and Tobago.

The Digicel Rising Stars can be seen on Sundays on TV6 at 8 pm and is repeated on Tuesdays and Fridays at 5 pm on the same channel.
