Here Are 10 Songs Of Jagjit Singh That Are Timeless!

Jagjit Singh, his name was perfect for his persona and he won the world with his words and singing. Jagjit originally named as Jagmohan Singh was born in Sri Ganganagar, Rajasthan, India (then Bikaner State) to a Punjabi Sikh family. The poet/ singer/composer’s father wanted him to be a bureaucrat but he also encouraged Singh to learn music. His love for words and music was so mighty that in March 1965, he moved to Bombay and obtained work as a singer for advertising jingles. His voice created magic and later he became a timeless playback singer who hypnotized the world through his singing.

His voice had a depth that touched millions of hearts and his words had peace wrapped inside them. He had many recognition under his name including Padma Bhushan, Sahitya Academy Award, Sangeet Natak Academy Award, Sahitya Kala Academy Award by Rajasthan government, Ghalib Academy by Delhi Government, Dayawati Modi Award, Lata Mangeshkar Samman by Madhya Pradesh government and Teacher’s Lifetime Achievement Award. With his unconventional yet bewitching voice, he ruled in the world of Ghazal Singers till we lost the maestro on 10 October 2011, at Lilavati Hospital, in Mumbai. Although we lost a great gem of the singing world but he had left his legacy and his voice as his timeless songs and on his 72nd birth Anniversary we are reviving the memory of Jagjit Singh.
