The Indian Idol winner Prashant Tamang on Monday night regaled the audience by singing popular songs of Hindi movies at a grand reception held in his honour at the Paljor stadium here at which the chief minister Pawan Kumar Chamgling released the audio cassette of the former's maiden album.

A 10,000-strong crowd, comprising the men, women and children, cheered lustily for Tamang who sung hit numbers of popular movies at a two-hour function held to felicitate him for bringing laurel to the people of the hill region of Darjeeling and Sikkim by becoming the Indian Idol at a private entertainment channel's programme last month.

The music lovers also showered their praise for another budding singer Charu Silwal, who took turn with Tamang in entertaining the gathered audience at the grand musical nite, the first of its kind held in the state capital.

Earlier, the chief minister released the maiden music album of Tamang and lavished praise on him for his achievement which, he said, has brought laurels to the hill people of the north-eastern region.

Tamang, on his part, thanked the people of Sikkim as well the rest of the Himalayan region for voting for him in large numbers which enabled him to win the Indian idol crown last month.
