Twenty-two year-old Princeton Colaco has always admired singers like Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars and liked the way they performed on stage. And it was these singers that motivated him to become a performer himself. Knowing that he had a potential in singing, he went ahead in pursuing this dream further. The youngster has now released his first music video ‘One Thing’ which is available online on platforms like YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes,
The catchy melody which draws you in at the first listen is a love song demonstrating one’s affection for his or her beloved. “The composition is very natural and it has a pop beat which is perfectly blended with guitars and is very pleasing to the ear,” says Colaco, who wrote and composed the song a year ago, and also sings it. He further adds that a lot of hard work and sleepless nights went into putting together the song.
And the musician reveals that he has been receiving a lot of positive feedback from people, not just for the music but for the lyrics as well. “However, it is the voice that has drawn most of the attention,” he says, adding that all the appreciation he has received has motivated him to continue writing, composing, and releasing more songs.
While he has no formal training in music, Colaco admits that he inherited this talent from his mother who used to sing in choirs. He enjoys listening to various kinds of music that is soothing to the ear, and in particular learns towards pop music. As a composer, singer and song-writer, he likes to focus on songs of love.
Over the last few years, he has participated in various inter-college band competitions and has also won some of these. In 2016, he took part in the Portuguese group singing competition ‘Vem Cantar’ and won the first place.
Based in Margao, Colaco is currently pursuing BE in Computer at Don Bosco College of Engineering, Fatorda. He considers himself lucky to be born in Goa because of its wide music culture.
