Ishmeet Singh, the first Voice of India champion in 2007 has died in a drowning accident in Maldives today. Ishmeet hailed from Ludhiana in Punjab.
A couple of months back I was invited in Guru Tegh Bahadur Insitute of Technology in Rajouri Gardens, New Delhi during their annual festival to be a judge of an event. That evening Ishmeet performed in front of the delirious college crowd. I remember him telling the crowd that it was his first live performance in Delhi.
More details surrounding his death are awaited.
