MUMBAI: Bollywood composer-singer-actor Himesh Reshammiya, who is seen as a judge on children's singing reality show "Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li'l Champs Season 6", signed a 5-year-old contestant, named Jayash Kumar, for a special song after he saw him reciting Hanuman Chalisa on stage.

Not only Himesh, Delhi-based Jayash surprised everyone on the set during his performance including judges Neha Kakkar and Javed Ali.

"I've sensed the potential of this child. If Jayash's talent is honed correctly and guided in the right direction, he can soar to unimaginable heights," Himesh said in a statement.

"After hearing him reciting the Hanuman Chalisa on stage I felt he could be the next big singer in the industry. That's why I have signed him for a special song," he added.

Jayash's mother, who was present on the set of the Zee TV show, said: "Jayash has been gifted with an exceptionally sharp memory. He can remember any song's lyrics after hearing them just three or four times".
