Amid some soulful and melodious singing performances and humorous gags, TV show The Voice India Kids – an Indian version of the internationally acclaimed reality format The Voice – was launched here on Tuesday in the presence of Bollywood singers Shekhar Ravjiani, Shaan and Neeti Mohan.

Co-hosted by actor Jay Bhanushali and singer-comedienne Sugandha Mishra, the show, which will be aired on &TV starting July 23, is aimed at providing a platform to children between the age group of 6-14 years to showcase their singing talent on national television.

“Since being a part of this show, what we have witnessed is that these kids, who are just 8-9 years old, are singing better than the grown-ups,” Shaan, who is returning as a coach on the show after “The Voice India”, said at the launch.

“What’s more interesting to see was that people in South, who usually face language barrier while speaking Hindi, are singing Hindi songs so well. Earlier we used to have contestants from Punjab, Kolkata, Assam, Rajasthan and Maharashtra mainly. But this time people from South and North East have also come in huge numbers,” Shaan added.
