Zee TV has launched ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li'l Champs 5’ on December 27, 2014, which will be telecast every Saturday and Sunday at 9 PM. The channel had recently unveiled its new brand philosophy ‘Har Lamha, Nayi Umeed’ that captures the beauty of rediscovering a new ray of hope with every moment of life.
In a boys vs girls format that lends itself to a spirited atmosphere of camaraderie and fun, these L’il Champs will embark on a musical journey where they will floor you with their command over sur and taal week-on-week, leaving you spell-bound with renditions of songs that you would least expect children of their age to have even heard of.
This edition, the kids will be mentored by none other than the king of melody Shaan and the songstress with a mellifluous voice, Monali Thakur, who step in as ‘Captains’. These two music marvels who have made a distinct mark for themselves in a short span of time, will understand each child’s strengths and areas of improvement and coach them on fine-tuning their skills.
Shaan as the captain of the boys’ team and Monali as the captain of the girls’ team respectively, will also carry the responsibility of evaluating the performances of these contestants fairly.
The Mahaguru – Alka Yagnik, having been a mentor across previous seasons of the show, is well-versed with the style in which the show encourages, motivates and grooms the contestants. The show will be hosted by Aditya Narayan, who is a talented singer himself.
Namit Sharma , Zee TV Programming Head, said, “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa is among Indian television’s very first few talent-based reality shows with a legacy of singing talent that it has built over almost two decades. It is a definitive platform for aspiring singers and has significantly contributed to the country’s culture and music scene. From attracting some of the biggest names of the music fraternity as judges to nurturing some of the finest budding talent in the country, the platform has only grown with each successive season.”
Sharma added, “The show is back with the 5th season of Li’ll Champs. We’ve got on board Shaan and Monali as mentors for the kids. Not only are they extremely warm, affable and great with kids but also have the ability to step in as role models and guiding forces for their growth as singers. Alkaji is one of the most awarded playback singers of our times and with her years of experience, will enrich the kids’ journey with her invaluable feedback.”
Zee Music Company will partner with Zee TV in terms of co-creating and promoting exclusive music content with the Li’l champs. In addition they will also help in the grooming process by engaging with musical icons and enabling the Lil Champs to interact with them.
