Singing. Dancing. Comedic skits. It's not a variety show; it was Keerthana's Sweet 16!
It was a spectacular celebration of family, music, and culture for Keerthana's birthday at the prestigious Royce Brook Golf Club in Hillsborough Township, NJ.
Several of Keerthana's family and friends prepared musical numbers and choreographed dances to entertain guests throughout the evening. The lineup included contemporary pop songs, traditional Bollywood-style dances, a father-daughter musical duet, and a routine by Keerthana and her court. It's easy to see where Keerthana, who represented New Jersey in the National American Miss pageant, inherited her talents.
Keerthana herself also gave a special solo performance of Adele's "When We Were Young."
Hurricane Productions set up gorgeous lighting effects to match Keerthana's pink and purple theme setting the stage for the songs and dances. MC Robert Padovano set the pace for the event, introducing important individuals and performances, while Nate Hawley provided additional entertainment as the evening's DJ.
Later in the night, one of the performers, Swarali, even taught the crowd a few dance moves!
Photographer Corynn Egresczky and videographer Markus Robinson were there to document and preserve the event for the Family. Corynn took portraits of the birthday girl with her family and friends with Royce Brook's gorgeous grounds as the backdrop, snapped photos of Keerthana's elegant décor, and captured incredible motion shots of the live performances.
Markus recorded highlights from the evening – including the performances, touching speeches from Keerthana's family, and the candle ceremony – and edited them together into a two-hour digital keepsake.
