Shekinah Mukhiya: Angels comes in all sizes


Dateline Dehradun: Dehradun’s pride, 15-year-old singer Shekinah Mukhiya, the finalist of Voice India Kids and Superstar Singer is familiar with the strain of success.

Shekinah and her dedicated team have been helping out people with serious health issues, the homeless and now those innumerable families that have been affected by the pandemic which started in March last year.

This shining star and her team distributed a month’s ration to some hundred-odd families in Mussoorie, where Shekinah was born and raised before she moved to Dehradun. Ration includes cooking oil, rice, flour, spices, sugar, tea and lentils. Basically anything that will sustain homes in times of unemployment stretching over months due to the pandemic.

This is Shekinah’s 5th such campaign. Her alma-matar Colonel Brown School, Hopetown School and her growing number of fans on social media that she garnered from across the globe given her gifted voice have joined together to fund her numerous noble causes.

And this is not the last we hear of her charity work. Shekinah along with her father Vikas Mukhiya has adopted a school in the outskirts of Doon Valley where they hold free music classes. Last December she took part in a musical event to raise funds for the homeless in Dehradun and even distributed free blankets, in the heart of winter.

From Jubin Nautiyal to Urvashi Rautela, from Raghav Juyal and now a fifteen-year-old Shekinah Mukhiya, truly Uttarakhand’s artists have stepped up to the line and risen to the occasion. Small wonder then that they are making headlines for giving back to the community in these truly extraordinary times.
