Vinaita Sivakumar a youthful, flourishing singer who has recently become a popular name in the Tamil Film Industry as a young playback singer. Vinaita Sivakumar was born in Chennai and has done her schooling from D.A.V. Public School. She then went on to pursue a Bachelors degree in English Literature from Ethiraj College. She, however, turned to music as her choice of profession and did not go on to make a living off of her area of education.

Vinaita Sivakumar’s light melodious voice is making quite a fuss in the playback industry. She rose to fame with her song in the 2010 film "Theeradhu Vilaiyattu Pillai" and more recently for her track "Poovum Poovum" from "Aadhalal Kadhal Seiveer” which was composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja.

She has been doing covers of some great retro songs as well which are gaining popularity in the new media. She recently did a cover of the song "Naan Sirithaal Deepavali" which is a song from the award-winning 1987 film " Nayagan" by Mani Ratnam which starred Kamal Haasan and the music for which was composed by none other than the maestro Ilaiyaraaja. Vinaita Sivakumar has been a singing enthusiast since the very early days of her infancy.

The stepping stone to her career started as early as when she was eight years old because it was during that time when she began attending singing competitions, many of which she won, and this drew her closer to music. She later went on to participate in a TV show where she bagged many prizes which gave her a boost.

The most current work of Vinaita Sivakumar is a music video series called “The Humming Queen” which contains well-known pieces by Swarnalatha a popular singer from the 90’s. The concept to the music video series “The Humming Queen” is given by Sainath Saikrishnan and it is Vinaita Sivakumar who gave the voice to the songs in the series.

Vinaita Sivakumar from the very age of eight to her youthful years when she won the TV show sang songs of Swarnalatha; which were all a coincidence but this made Vinaita Sivakumar inculcate an eternal adoration towards Swarnalatha.

Swarnalatha was known for being able to “sing in high scales without any change in her voice tonality”. Vinaita Sivakumar, a fan of Swarnalatha, learned about the sudden death of Swarnalatha’s death in 2010 and was quite taken back. Vinaita Sivakumar said, “I felt heavy” in an interview when asked about her reaction to Swarnalatha’s death.

She now hopes to continue doing shows that are Swarnalatha-centric. The 29-year-old popular playback singer who has already worked with established composers like Yuvan Shankar Raja, Thaman and Dharan and others within her short span in the industry strive to continue doing some good work.
