Congratulations to Lata Mangeshkar, a Hindi songstress with a glorious singing career spanning 75 years, for receiving The BrandLaureate Legendary Award.
A remarkably talented artist, Mangeshkar has contributed significantly to the world of music and entertainment with her exceptional talent and started recording songs for films since 1942.
Widely regarded as the supreme voice of popular Indian music, the melody queen has recorded songs for over 1000 Bollywood films, and has sung in over 36 languages.
Many of her performances are considered timeless. She is well known for her soulful melodies including Aayega Aanewala, Lag Jaa Gale and Ajeeb Dastaan Hai Ye.
In 1994, her lively rendition of ‘Didi Tera Devar’ from the evergreen classic ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun’ became an instant hit amongst the masses.
The following year, she won a special Filmfare award on public demand, proving that she is the “people’s choice” and paving the way for future singers in the industry.
Fondly referred to as the ‘Nightingale’, Mangeshkar has bagged almost every major award, and has worked with the who’s who of the film fraternity. Highly regarded by fans, critics and industry insiders alike, she is well deserving of The BrandLaureate Legendary Award.
