Dubai-based Indian girl wins Global Child Prodigy Award-1Dubai: A Dubai-based Indian girl, who can sing in 120 languages, has won in the 'Global Child Prodigy Awards 2020', a media report said on Friday.

The 13-year-old Sucheta Satish, known as the Dubai Indian High School's nightingale, won in the singing category, her father T.C. Satish told the Khaleej Times.

The Global Child Prodigy Award is a platform to celebrate children's talent and power in different categories such as dancing, music, arts, writing, acting, modelling, science, innovation, sports etc.

The awards are supported by the Dr APJ Abdul Kalam International Foundation and Oscar award-winning music producer A.R. Rahman to name a few.

Furthermore, fresh out of the release of her second album "Ya Habibi" and having Malayalam superstar Mammooty release it along with actor Unni Mukundan, Sucheta has a lot going on for her.

Speaking about her win, Sucheta said: "I was selected for the award for my twin world records for singing in most languages during one concert and the longest live singing concert by a child which I had set as a 12-year-old two years ago in Dubai at the Indian Consulate Auditorium when I sang in 102 languages over 6.15 hours."

Sucheta can presently sing in 120 languages.

"The award ceremony is in New Delhi on Friday, when 100 Global Child prodigies across the world will be honoured in different categories. I am particularly excited to meet the Nobel Peace prize winner Kailash Sathyarthi who is the chief guest for the programme."
