Raja Hasan from Bikaner – A Genuine Singer on Saregamapa
Raja Hasan…do we really need introduction for this man? The song ‘alha ke bande’ is still lingering in our mind. Raja Hasan Sagar is from Bikaner, Rajasthan but his journey from Bikaner to saregamapa was not easy.
Initially he was not selected in any Gharana and was part of Eklavya Gharana. Then Vishal – Shekhar selected him into Hit It Gharana and he got golden chance to perform. He sang ‘Alha Ke Bande’ (from movie Waisa Bhi hota hai) on Vishal Shekhar’s special episode and his mind-blowing performance made everyone speechless. He got prised from every Mentor and MahaGuru but unfortunately on that day he couldn’t make it to final and he got trapped in Chakravyuh.
In Chakravyuh round, there was tough competition between Amanat and him. Raja sang Tere Bina (from movie Guru) and Piya re (from Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan album).
Raja Sings ‘Tere Bina’ from movie ‘Guru’
He forgets few lines in the middle and he got eliminated from Saregamapa Challenge 2007. But Raja just smiled and took it sportingly. While leaving the show, Raja dedicated a song for Aditya as he was the one who liked the song which Raja sang and got into Hit IT gharana.. The song was zindagi ek pyaas from Judaai. After his performance, Ismail Darbar came on to the stage and hugged Raja. Every mentor requested public to bring back Raja.
Still there was little hope for Raja that he might have been selected in Bramhastra Round. And Vishal Shekhar didn’t disappoint Raja and selected him for Bramhastra Round. In Bramhastra round, he sang Naino ki mat suniyo re (from movie Omkara). It was such a beautiful performance that public asked him to sing once more and He sang again on request of everyone…
Now it’s in our hand to save such fantastic and God-gifted singer. For that we need to vote for him.
