Adoptee wins hearts on her homecoming

Kolkata, Feb 3(UNI) She came, she sang and she won hearts.
Rani Weatherby strummed her ukulele to accompany her soulful rendition of some enthralling numbers yesterday evening at the American Center.

The Indian-born singer with a winning voice who sings jazz, blues, and soul with equal ease, said she was happy to be back to India, especially Kolkata where she was born.

Weatherby was adopted when she was just two months old and taken to the U.S. by her American parents, where she grew up.

The Seattle based singer/songwriter, who likes to call her maiden trip to the city 'an adoptee's homecoming', said, "This has been a really magical trip for me, something I have dreamed about for so long. I can see people who look like me; this is something that doesn't happen in my area. This is a special feeling that my friends, even some of my family members cannot understand."

Rani formed Champagne Honeybee in 2011, after purchasing her first ukulele and teaching herself to play it.

Currently putting her creative efforts on a full-length album of original material, which she hopes to release in 2019, the singer wants to experiment with Indian music in her upcoming work.
“I plan to incorporate Indian elements in my album because it is part of my story and that new album will be part of my life story."

'The Best Jazz Vocalist' award winner wants to come back to India on a longer trip with her sister to explore Kolkata and India, in future.
