Popular Singer Jagjit Singh R.I.P

Jagjit Singh

" Popularly known as 'Ghazal King', Singh gained acclaim together with his wife, singer Chitra Singh. The couple was considered to be pioneers of modern Ghazal singing and regarded as most successful recording artistes outside the realm of Indian film music.
Chitra stopped giving public performances after their only son, Vivek, died in a road accident in the early 1990s. But Singh continued to charm audiences, singing with equal ease in Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Gujrati, Sindhi and Nepali languages. He was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 2003.

He died on 10th October 2011 at 8:10 am. He passed away at the age of 70. The reason cited was brain haemorrhage."
