MUMBAI—“The Voice India Kids Season 2” for singing talent in the age group of 7 to 14 years will soon take off. Himesh Reshammiya, Shaan, Papon and Palak Mucchal have been roped in as the coaches for the show that premieres Nov. 11.

&tv’s “The Voice India Kids” promises to change the fate of many little singing geniuses. The show is produced by Essel Vision Pvt. Ltd., and from giving a platform to the differently-abled kids to honoring the unheard struggles of children from the deepest corners of the country, it will showcase the true passion of India’s young singing talent.

As with the first season, the contestants will test the power of their voice by compelling the coaches to “turn” for them. With Himesh’s expertise in driving fresh talent from across the country, Papon’s connections to the roots of folk music, and Palak’s and Shaan’s flair to mold themselves, the young contestants will learn more, hone their talent further and grow with every passing week. Jay Bhanushali and Nihar Gite will host the show.

Said Reshammiya, “‘The Voice India Kids’ is a platform that captures the true essence of music and gives many talented children an opportunity to get their melodious voices heard. I personally love being around children, and they are my biggest source of inspiration. The purity of their souls always reflects in their music. I am thrilled to be a part of this and am looking forward to an exciting new musical journey.”

Shaan said, “It’s always a pleasure to return to show where to climb the ladder of success, one must exhibit the power of your voice. This show is very close to my heart because it puts forth the kind of music and voice that touches your soul. I am looking forward to yet another outstanding display of talent this year.”

Speaking about his debut on this show, Papon said, “This is one of a unique singing reality shows and gives a befitting platform to showcase talent. I have been a part of and performed on a few singing reality shows in the past, but this is the first time that I will be judging one, and I am really excited! I hope that I am able to share my knowledge of music with these young musical prodigies to help and nurture them to chase their dreams as a coach”.

Muchhal added, “It takes a stage like ‘The Voice India’ to show the country how powerful performances can appeal to the most discerning minds. The blind selections of teams ensure that any external biases are eliminated, and only the most heartwarming voices proceed in the competition. It’s this opportunity to explore and prove your talent which I have always respected. In a country like ours, where there is talent hidden at every turn, platforms like these make a big difference in a person’s life. I hope to do justice as a coach and help inculcate the skill sets required to achieve success among the young contestants.”
