Renowned singer Usha Uthup has broken the internet with her captivating cover of Miley Cyrus’ chart-buster song ‘Flowers’, for which the pop sensation even won a Grammy this year. The song’s rendition by the legendary Indian musician has gone viral, winning fans’ appreciation and praise.
Overjoyed by the responses, Uthup shares, “I am so thrilled and grateful to the people for loving my version as well. I just sang the song because my daughter Anjali introduced me to it randomly one day. When I heard it, I just loved the song so much.”
Describing the widespread appeal of her version, Uthup said that she has been singing ‘Flowers Song’ in all her shows. And everybody loves it so much. She was so excited to know that her cover version was being appreciated like this. “She didn’t even think that it would come on Instagram. Everybody who has written such marvellous things about my cover, thank you so much! What truly made me happy is that people have said that they could relate to the song more because of my voice,” she continued.
The veteran singer emphasises that, be it men, women, or children, everyone loves this song. It’s fantastic, and the success has made her feel so good.
Adding, “It’s such a beautiful song with fantastic lyrics; that’s what inspired me. It’s a new kind of breakup song, but as far as I am concerned, it’s the positivity of woman power. I always end it with a line, ‘I can’t do without your love’, because I must have the love of the audience.”
Expressing her appreciation for Miley Cyrus and her recent Grammy win for the song, the 76-year-old says, “I am so excited for Miley Cyrus for getting the Grammy for this song. I can’t wait for her to listen to the song, and I hope she will like it. I am sure we will work together very soon.”
