Sona lives to be on stage

NEW DELHI: Indian singer Sona Mohapatra, famous for tracks like Ambarsariya and Bedardi Raja, says she loves to perform on stage and there is nothing else that fuels her like a live audience.

“A live audience fuels me like nothing else and I really live to be on stage. It is as important as oxygen.

It’s a very emotional thing to be on stage and to make people happy and to get them to give you that love in return. It’s like the most incredible don’t have to ever drink alcohol if you can go on stage,” Mohapatra said.

She says she doesn’t consider herself as just a singer but a storyteller.

“I don’t see myself as a mere singer, I never have. I see myself as a storyteller. I will always interpret a song and tell a story. I will find an emotion, a mood and a whole colour palette in which to say it in,” said the songstress, who crooned the songs Mujhe Kya Bechega Rupaiya and Ghar Yaad Aata Hai Mujhe for Aamir Khan’s Satyamev Jayate.
