Throughout a career expanding over seven decades, Lata Mangeshkar, the Nightingale of India has pleased us all with her magical voice. It is quite astonishing that her voice remains the same when we listen to her classical hits as well as the modern ones.
The iconic vocalist was well-known not only in India but all around the world. She bears the distinction of being the first Indian performer to perform live at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
The voice that changed the face of Indian music was known all over the world, and it was even inscribed in the Guinness Book of World Records. She held the Guinness record for recording the most replay songs in 1974. She is also the only Asian to receive EMI London’s platinum disc.
Her approach to life was very cheerful, she always enjoyed life, despite the ups and downs that accompanied her path. It felt like she’d completed a journey with all the parts she’d played for various people – whether it was as a responsible daughter, a devoted sister to her siblings, or a capable professional to anyone who had the opportunity to work with her.
So, here are some of this legend’s best classical tunes, which may cause you to shed a tear or two as you recall memories associated with them.
