For many, social media is a way to express and showcase their talent, sometimes by recreating a popular song and giving it a personal touch. When Punjabi Canadian Singer AP Dhillion Came Out Apologies, he had expected this to happen to his song as well. But an Indian singer who speaks fluent Punjabi would have been the likely candidate to recreate the song. Instead, a Dutch singer sang Apologies and it sounds really pleasant to the ears. The version of the song sung by Emma Heesters has since gone viral on Instagram and has more than 1.2 million views.
Ms. Heesters, who has more than 1.6 million followers on Instagram, has recreated several Indian songs by adding her own touch. For Apologies, she added a few lines of English lyrics to the Punjabi version. The transition from Punjabi to English and back is very smooth and gives an impression of a fusion song.
“Apologies. Comment which song you want to hear next,” she asked her followers.
The post has gotten more than 1.94 lakh likes and various comments. People mainly used heart and fire emojis to express their excitement and love for the Dutch singer.
“Beautiful voice,” said one person, followed by several heart emojis.
“Great magic voice,” said another.
Many Instagram users also suggested songs they would like to hear next. This is how a user urged Heesters to sing Do Gallan by another Punjabi singer Garry Sandhu.
†Do Gallan by Garry Sandhu. PLZ mom. love from India,” said the user.
Another asked her to sing Jo Bheji Thi Dua… from the movie Shanghai†
However, some users didn’t seem very amused by Mrs. Heesters’ version of AP Dhillon’s song.
One user said: “This one doesn’t create the same atmosphere as your other covers. To be honest.”
Besides Punjabi, the Dutch singer also recreates songs from Arabic and Telugu. She sang before Oo Aantava Oo Oo Antava of the recent Allu Arjun starrer pushpa†
