From the age of four Ghoshal accompanied her mother on the harmonium. Her parents enrolled her for formal training in Hindustani classical music in Kota with Maheshchandra Sharma.

world heard Ghoshal’s singing voice pictured on Aishwarya Rai, and she quickly became one of the top female playback singers in Bollywood, alongside Alka Yagnik, Sunidhi Chauhan, Sadhana Sargam and Kavita Krishnamurthy. Since Devdas, she has gone on to sing for many more actresses under the baton of various music directors, including M.M. Kreem, for whom she sang “Jaadu Hai Nasha Hai”, a sensuous number pictured on Bipasha Basu in Jism. She won many awards (8 Awards in a single year including a National Award)[citation needed]. She also received many accolades for the song 'Mere Dholna' from Bhool Bhulaiya. She has since gone on to sing for various music directors including Ilayaraja A.R. Rahman, Yuvan Shankar Raja, Harris Jayaraj, Anu Malik, Himesh Reshammiya, M.M. Kreem, Shankar Ehsaan Loy, Pritam, Vishal-Shekhar and Mano Murthy. Today Ghoshal is an established industry singer and has recorded in various regional languages, including Bengali, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Manipuri, Marathi and Bhojpuri. She also appeared as a judge in the singing show Amul Star Voice Of India Chhote Ustaad. She has also sung the title song of many Indian Television serials.

Ghosal has completed her college education, and is planning to pursue her MA in literature, a subject which she adores. She enjoys Symphony and instrumental in western music and her favourite group is ABBA. But Indian music is definitely her soul. Her voice has a texture that suits romantic songs and she can project voice very well (a fine example is “Jaadu Hai Nasha Hai ” from Jism). She is also comfortable singing sad songs or peppy songs. Apart from Devdas, she has done songs for Jism, Saaya, Inteha, Out of Control, Khakee, Munnabhai MBBS, Dhoop, Kuchh Kaha Aapne, Armaan, Desh Devi, Tujhe Meri Kasam, LOC Kargil, Aetbaar, Police Force, Lage Raho Munnabhai, Guru, Big B etc. She is the only playback singer to have been nominated in 4 out of the 5 nominations for the best playback singer for her songs in 2008 in IIFA 2008.
