Playback singer Sowmya Raoh was awarded the Best New Talent Female Singer Award at the Stardust Awards held on February 3, 2004 in Mumbai. Sowmya was awarded the trophy for her excellent rendering of the song Laila Laila in the film Samay. This is Sowmya's first award as a playback singer and obviously she is excited about it.
"I never thought I would win the award. There were many more nominees and some of them looked sure to win. I was surprised when my name was announced but my belief in God strengthened further with this award. They always say patience pays and I have waited for so many years to be recognized as a Bollywood singer. This award has elevated me to a different level and I feel honoured to be chosen for it," says Sowmya who is grateful to her mentor Sandeep Chowta who first introduced her to Bollywood.
At present Sowmya is busy singing for top composers and doing live shows with Sonu Nigam. She is also awaiting the release of DanceMasti's forthcoming album.
