Albert reveals the reason why he didn't want to participate in Sa Re Ga Ma Pa 2023

In an exclusive chat with Pinkvilla, Albert said, "I would like to credit my win to my wife who has been instrumental in pushing me to do the show. My wife Pooja and I lost our nine-month-old baby a few months back. We both were disheartened by the loss. I wanted to not do anything in terms of singing for a while, however, Pooja told me about the auditions and pushed me to take it up. I remember telling her that I wouldn't be able to perform after the loss that we faced. Pooja told me that I'll have to do it for our daughter and that's when I agreed."

"Pooja is probably happier than me as I won the show. Her happiness knew no bounds. Since I've never trained in any form of music, I believed that I'd go in the finale, but didn't think that I'd win the show," he added.

He said, "Honestly, I haven't thought about it much but I think I'll use the money to get more accurate with my singing skills since I've not taken formal training. I might open a studio. Also, I wish to give some money at my house because I was never able to contribute before."
