12-Year-Old Aims To Sing In 85 Languages For Guinness Record
Suchetha Satish, a class 7 student, is set to create a Guinness World Record. The 12-year-old aims to sing songs in as many as 80 languages in one concert. If she is able to do this, she will surely smash the earlier record of the Guinness World Record in singing in most languages.
Originally from Kerala, Suchetha is fluent in Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil and English.
It’s been just over a year that Suchetha has learnt to sing in 80 languages. To break the record, she still has to learn at least five more songs in five different languages, the report said.
“My first song in a foreign language was in Japanese,” said Suchetha.
According to the Guinness World Records, Kesiraju Srinivas aka Ghazal Srinivas holds the current record for singing in 76 languages. Kesiraju created the record in 2008 at Gandhi Hills, Andhra Pradesh
Suchetha, who was born in a family of music lovers, is aiming high. “My father’s friend, a Japanese dermatologist, came to Dubai a year ago. When she came home, she sang a Japanese song. I liked it very much and learnt it,” she added.
Suchetha’s love for music was born with learning Carnatic music at the tender age of four. When she was eight, she started learning Hindustani music

“Usually I take around two hours to learn a song. If it is easy to pronounce, I can learn it fast. If it is not a lengthy song, I can finish in half an hour,” she claimed.
