After Usha Uthup went viral for her rendition of Miley Cyrus’ ‘Flowers’, she spoke about the possibility of a collaboration.
At an event at Kolkata’s Trincas restaurant, the Indian singer performed her version of the Grammy Award-winning track.
Usha garnered praise from fans, with one commenting:
“Best thing on the internet to listen to.”
Another said: “People who are timeless are those who don’t mind walking hands in hand with time! Legend.”
Some called for a collaboration between Usha and Miley.
One user said: “They should do a collab? YES.”
Another commented: “This should go down in history as the most ICONIC crossover.”
A third agreed: “Miley Cyrus, maybe you can plan a collaboration with this bomb woman pretty soon? You won’t regret it ever, I swear!”
Overwhelmed by the responses, Usha said:
“I am so thrilled and grateful to the people for loving my version as well.
“I just sang the song because my daughter Anjali introduced me to it randomly one day. When I heard it, I just loved the song so much.”
Speaking about her version’s widespread appeal, Usha said:
“I’ve been singing it in all my shows and everybody loves it so much.
“I was so excited to know that my cover version is being appreciated like this. I didn’t even think that it would come on Instagram.
“Everybody who has written such marvellous things about my cover, thank you so much!
“What truly made me happy is that people have actually said that they could relate to the song more because of my voice.
“Girls, boys, men, women, and even children are loving this song so much.”
“It’s really fantastic, the success has made me feel so good. It’s such a beautiful song with fantastic lyrics, that’s what inspired me.
“It’s a new kind of breakup song, but as far as I am concerned, it’s the positivity of woman power.
“I always end it with a line, ‘I can’t do without your love’, because I must have the love of the audience.”
Usha Uthup congratulated Miley Cyrus on the Grammy Award win and teased a collaboration:
“I am so excited for Miley Cyrus for getting the Grammy for this song.
“I can’t wait for her to listen to the song and I hope she would like it. I am sure we will work together very soon.”
