The talent in this country is inexhaustible! I believe, Ravindra has the inherent talent to create and deliver music that will appeal to a wide range of audiences. His grasp of music is tremendous and he will definitely be a voice to reckon with! I'd like to say a big thank you to all the viewers for having participated. Your inputs have definitely helped me in the final decision making."
