Both singers regaled a crowd of patients, bystanders and hospital staff with numerous songs.
“To be able to share work with legendary musicians like Raveendran master, Jerry Amaldev, Anil Johnson, Jerson Antony and a few new generation music directors is an undeniable honour. To recreate the experience I have gathered through the years and to joyously deliver it before the audience here at the hospital is soul warming”, said Anoop, who is also known for his Mridhangam skills.
Singers Sruthi Benny, a ninth grade student from AssissiVidyaNikethan and Gopi, a staff with the Ernakulam medical college staff also joined in with the noted singers to present before the audience a collection of fifteen songs.
