Talented playback singer Shreya Ghoshal received a special award today at the House of Commons in London. In attendance were Barry Gardiner MP and also Virendra Kumar Sharma MP to name a few.

Upon receiving the award, Ghoshal expressed her gratitude to Sharma and also said that it felt like London was “not even one mile away from home”. She gave special thanks to her parents and her younger brother for always showing her their support. She said the award makes her want to do even better and to give even better music.
