SINGER Sumeet Tappoo has won the Best Emerging Soulful Singer award at Mumbai's prestigious 20th Lions Gold Awards 2014 last Tuesday.

Tappoo took the award for his recent album titled Destiny which featured ghazal legends Pankaj Udhas, Anup Jalota and Talat Aziz.

As winner of one of Indian music's biggest awards, Tappoo said it was the perfect start to the new year.

"With Destiny turning out to be one of the biggest albums in 2013, I am looking forward to this year, especially with my new movie song releases on the horizon," he said.

"Destiny was launched in November at a glitzy affair at Novotel Mumbai by Amitabh Bachchan, who recommended the album very highly."

The awards ceremony also recognised Bollywood's film and music stars including actor Ranveer Singh, Shraddha Kapoor, Aditi Rao and Anand Rai.

Tappoo has sung alongside industry legends such as Shankar Mahadevan, Hariharan, Suresh Wadkar, Shaan and Sadhna Sargam.
