Shreya Ghoshal Honoured by Wembley during Concert - f

"I'm trying not to cry."

Shreya Ghoshal was gifted with an award by organisers in London’s Wembley OVO arena during her concert.

On February 9, 2024, the renowned Bollywood singer performed with rigour and entertained thousands as part of her All Hearts tour.

Just before interval, organisers joined her onstage to present her with a certificate, signifying that she had sold out Wembley Arena.

In recognition of this, Shreya was handed an accolade, inviting reinvigorated applause and cheer from the audience.

Visibly emotional, Shreya Ghoshal said: “I’m trying not to cry.”

The star went on to thank her family and band who were performing with her onstage.

She also profusely expressed her gratitude for her audiences who, as remarkably proven by the energy in London, had always supported her.

On the show, Shreya was accompanied by singer Kinjal Chatterjee, who provided some of the male vocals in Shreya’s duets.

Kinjal also performed solo before Shreya rejoined the stage after interval.

The concert was undeniably an event filled with firsts.

Not only did Shreya win an award for selling out Wembley for the first time, the evening also saw Shreya play the piano and sing onstage.

As the mellifluous singer sat down at her piano, she admitted:

“I have never done this before onstage.”

Judging by the swooning and the acclamation of the audience, Shreya certainly did a magnificent job.

During the concert, she also paid tribute to classic singers including Mukesh, Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammad Rafi.

These numbers included ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ from Guide (1965), ‘Kahin Door Jab Din Dhal Jaaye’ from Anand (1971), ‘Jo Wada Kiya‘ from Taj Mahal (1963) and ‘Abhi Na Jaao Chod Kar’ from Hum Dono (1961).

Among her own songs, Shreya performed chartbusters such as ‘Baadmaash Dil’ from Singham (2011), ‘Main Tainu Samjha’ from Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014) and ‘O Saathi Re‘ from Omkara (2006).

She also sang her newer songs from Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani (2023).

During her live renditions of ‘Radha’, ‘Chikni Chameli’ and ‘Ooh La La’, the stadium turned into a dance floor as hundreds of viewers left their seats and shook a leg in the aisles.

Shreya Ghoshal began her singing career in the early 2000s.

She found her big break in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Devdas (2002).

Since then, she has gone on to become one of Bollywood’s most popular and influential female playback singers.

She won Filmfare awards for her songs in films like Jism (2003), Guru (2007) and Singh Is Kinng (2008) – the last of which alludes to the classic ‘Teri Ore‘, which was a duet with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.

With such a sweet and enchanting voice, it is no surprise that Shreya sold out Wembley.

She unquestionably deserves this honour.

Shreya Ghoshal is due to perform in Manchester on February 10, 2024, which will be her second and final UK show of her All Hearts tour.
