Early lifeEdit

Divya Kumar comes from a musical family. His grandfather, Pandit Shivram, was a composer for many regional films in India, and for V. Shantaram's films. His father, Bhagwan Shivram, is a musician and has recorded with RD Burman, Jatin-Lalit and Himesh Reshamiyya.

He started singing since the age of eight, and even as a child he performed on stage shows. He considered other professions, but his mother urged him to pursue a career as a singer. He appeared in many shows while in Kalyanji Anandji's troupe, and has worked with leading playback singers like Sunidhi Chauhan, Shreya Ghoshal, and Javed Ali, all from Kalyanji Anandji School of Music. He participated in the 50th Independence day special episode of Sa Re Ga Ma in 1997.

Since then, he has gone on to sing some popular songs like "Subhaarambh" for the film Kai Po Che, "Chanchal Man Ati Random" for the film Shuddh Desi Romance, and was featured on "Daingad Daingad" from the film Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania.

He also sang in the Farhan Akhtar starrer movie Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, singing "Maston Ka Jhund" (music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy). In 2013, he sang in Finding Fanny and Ghanchakkar (film), and was a part of MTV India's prestigious 'MTV Unplugged' , which dedicated an entire episode to his hits. He has also appeared on MTV's other prestigious musical show "MTV Unplugged". He sang in a serial called Satrangi Sasural as a playback singer and the theme music composed by Sachin-Jigar. In 2017 he sung a title song for three international award-winning Rajasthani film Taawdo The Sunlight (Rajasthani Film).[5] He is a rare combination of immense talent and powerful musical genes, which makes him a very soulful & powerful performer at the same time.
