WORLD KNOWN AMERICAN MUSIC EXECUTIVE AND INDEPENDENT FILM PRODUCER IN HOLLYWOOD plus GRAMMY AWARD WINNING PUBLISHER, TONY MERCEDES(Is also one of the publishers of the world wide hit, Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape Of You’).
Many well known Indian singers from Bollywood etc have dreamed of making it in Hollywood through the decades.
But FINALLY the FIRST CHOSEN ONE to create history by being discovered and invested in by a well-known established American Music Executive in Hollywood, to render songs in American English/Music by her, is none other than Hemaa Sardesai.
She was happy to wholeheartedly share the stage with the talented Indian tv star Mishaal Raheja, thus introducing him to Tony Mercedes, the great American Music Mogul.
POWER OF LOVE is an extremely inspiring song/single, written by American celebrated song writer, RION MICHAEL, and just fitted into Hemaa’s sincere wish to make the world a depression-free, strongly positive place..imbibed in her from always by her Rev Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, to whom her gratitude knows no bounds.
This smash new American debut single from the EP, by HEMAA SARDESAI featuring MISHAAL RAHEJA, has been just released in Manhattan, NEW YORK, USA on 11th Dec 2017 at a well attended International press meet..and thereafter in New Delhi.
Tony Mercedes says –
“I really believe in and respect Hemaa. Not only for the magnificent singer that she is, but the great human being that she is as well. I have worked with many talented artist in my career, but none with a heart the size of Hemaa’s. Hemaa’s sincere concern to make the world a better place to live in for all is not only echoed in her music but in her life’s journey as a fighter for justice and equality. A voice for those whom the powers to be have attempted to silence. So it is with pride that I accepted the challenge to finally complete this historical project with her.”
At the launch of Power Of Love in New York, Tony Mercedes said..
“A colleague of mine in Texas, Richard Omar, kept telling me about this girl named Hemaa Sardesai. So he sent me a glimpse of her voice and then I flew her to Atlanta, and when I heard her sing it was as if the angels were speaking to me because her voice was so dominent, so strong, it made you pay attention. Music transcends geographical boundaries and hearing Hema’s powerful voice, that to me is right up there with Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, I just knew I had to make an album with her.”
Chief Executive Officer for Eastern Media Holdings, Inc., MR SUNIL HALI, from New York said at the launch.
“Years back Hemaa had been touring several cities of USA to launch Zee tv in America. The media gave her the title “Icon Of The Masses” with her great performance. Her humble demeanour which we saw then, is evident even today. We all still distinctly remember her powerful rendition of the ‘Titanic’ song. We listened spellbound and awestruck by her voice. I mean we have heard her singing her hit semi classical plus Bollywood songs with ease and here she was rendering American music with the perfect accent and same ease. Cannot think of any other singer who has accomplished such a feat in Indian as well as western music. And that evening we all knew that Hemaa is meant to be rocking America with her talent. And rightfully here she is today with her Hollywood single, Power Of Love.”
And so thanks to Tony Mercedes’ pure belief in true talent, with this first American EP of it’s kind in Indian history. This smash single ‘Power Of Love’ being released Internationally from America..is a TRUE PRIDE FOR INDIANS.
