d2h Launches 'Singing Star' in association with So

National, 5th May, 2020: In an attempt to uncover young hidden talent and engage its customer base, d2h, a brand of Dish TV India Ltd, India’s leading DTH Company has rolled out a nationwide singing talent hunt ‘Singing Star’ in association with Songdew TV channel. India has a rich tradition of music and singing. Songs and music unify the entire country and bring age groups together. d2h seeks to give latent singing stars a platform to showcase their talents and be recognized.


In order to participate in ‘Singing Star’ the aspiring singing stars need to register themselves in three simple steps. First, create a 60-second long video or audio clip of themselves singing any song of their choice. Second, upload the one-minute video/audio clip on YouTube and finally, fill the form available on www.d2hstars.com in order to upload their entry. The final winner would be selected by a well-known panel of judges, including Neeraj Arya's Kabir Café, Astitva, Fiddlecraft, FusedheaD and Sanjeeta and the winner will get an opportunity to record his/her original music. This music will be launched globally, along with video promotion on Songdew TV.
