First Indian Woman to Sing the National Anthem at a NHL Game

As Indian culture continues to intermingle within American culture, the influence of Indians on American music, film, art, food, sports, technology, business and politics also continues to grow. We open up to more opportunities for Indians to succeed in various careers. One such opportunity came for Soukhya Inamdar, a second generation Indian American, who found her passion in singing. At a young age, she already has a prolific singing career having performed in a multitude of competitions and stages, including singing at the Purdue University NCAA Basketball game.

INDTVUSA, a San Jose based South Asian channel focusing on interests of South Asians, spotted Soukhya Inamdar at a singing competition in the Bay Area. INDTVUSA, in collaboration with the San Jose Sharks, are hosting their first Indian Heritage Night at the SAP Center on March 5th – a San Jose Sharks vs. Minnesota Wild game. INDTVUSA and the San Jose Sharks have selected Soukhya to sing the National Anthem at the event, where she will also become the first Indian woman to ever sing the National Anthem at an NHL game. This sets the stage for Soukhya’s biggest opportunity yet.
