There's a magic in his voice that keep fans coming back for more and although he's performed in Trinidad many times before, this Saturday Sonu Nigam will be coming to rock the stage once again. However his performance this time will be one of celebration as 90.5fm will be commemorating its 15th anniversary while Trinidad and Tobago will be marking its 50th anniversary of Independence.
For the first time Nigam will be accompanied with his full band of 14 musicians and fans will be treated to more Bollywood beats as singers Angam Nigam and Gunjan Singh (India's latest female singing craze) will also be sharing the stage at the Centre of Excellence, Macoya with Nigam.
Local heartthrobs Indar Kanhai and Ravi Bissambhar will also grace the stage and will be belting out their hits while engineers will also be on site to provide a spectacular light and sound effects.
Nigam began his singing career at the early age of three when he joined his father on stage to sing the song of India's legend Mohammed Rafi "Kya Hua Tera Vaada, Wo Kassam Wo Irada" and since then his passion and devotion revolved around music.
By 19 Nigam followed his dream and moved to Mumbai to go after his Bollywood singing career, like most artistes he faced a struggle in the industry but was able to get his first song from the film Aaja Meri Jaan at the age of 20.
Nigams big break came when The late Gulshan Kumar, owner of T-series music company heard Nigam and invited him to work with him. The song which shot him to fame was "Accha Sila Diya Tune" from the film Bewafa Sanam but his real moment of glory came in playback singing when he was invited to sing the song "Yeh Dil Deewana" for
Subhash Ghai's film Pardes plummeting Nigam to become one of India's singing heartthrobs.
Keeping in tune with the trends and modernisation of the world, Nigam changed his style of singing and blended the rhythms of the West with the classical tunes of the East.
Today, Nigam is amongst the highest paid singers in Bollywood and is in high demand.
He is also knowns as the first host of India's popular talent show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa which grew to become that country's most loved shows on television.
Nigam is a major force in the music industry with too many awards to list.
His rendition of the popular song Kal Ho Na Ho is one that fans request repeatedly during his concerts.
He is not only recognised for singing love songs but also branched out successfully into Indipop, rock and also the songs filled with sorrow.
Nigam has also sung in many languages including English, Hindi, Kannada, Bengali, Urdu, Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil, Nepali, Malayalam and Marathi.
American pop legend the late Michael Jackson was Nigam's icon and following Jackson's death Nigam released a tribute song to Jackson in his honour which made it to an 18 sing global compilation of tribute songs CD The Beats of Our Hearts.
Nigam's melodious voice is well known globally as he has performed in many countries including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Russia, Afghanistan, UAE, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Suriname, Mauritius, Nigeria, Guyana and South Africa.
Not only does he sing but Nigam also took a stint on the silver screen. He acted in several films including Betaab, Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani alongside Bollywood stars Manisha Koirala and Sunny Deol. He played the lead role in the film Love in Nepal alongside actresses Flora Saini and Sweta Keswani.
Nigam's concerts have attracted thousands on various continents and the same is expected for his big show this Saturday. His live performances are known to stretch out into over three hours and his love for his fans seems to be the motivating factor.
"Your tomorrow has no right to complain about your today, as long as your today gives you a bliss, unknown and incomprehensible to both your yesterday and tomorrow" says Nigam who promised to provide Bollywood bliss to his fans this Saturday in Trinidad as part of his world tour concerts.
