Choudry began her singing career. When she was 12 years old, her talent was discovered by noted music director Biddu, who launched her musical career. She, at first, lent her voice as a backup singer to playback singers like Shweta Shetty and Alisha Chinai.
In 2000, Choudry started her career as a pop singer with her all-female band “Sansara” with a song which Choudry herself wrote (“Yeh Dil Sun Raha Hai”).

Songs on this album include “Ek Pardesi Mera Dil Le Gaya”, “Jadugar Saiyaan”, “Zuby Zuby”, “Dil Ke Armaan”, “Ghar Aaya Mera Pardesi”, and “Bachke Rehna Re Baba”.
In December 2009, Choudry launched her album Sound of Sophie, which had no remixes, but only original numbers.
