They say music creates a soothing impression in our minds and let us escape our harsh realities. With every song we listen to a new story that unfolds, a new sentiment develops and a new pleasant vibe takes over. We are not sure how valid this in our generation because all the commercial music that we get to hear pretty much is absolutely absurd. So we gradually keep going back to the times when music was more about embracing the warmth of familiar tunes and voices.
And for all those who grew up in 90s and 2000s, you will definitely agree that there is nothing more comforting than the voice of the man who single-handedly defined popular music. This man is our very own Sonu Nigam. The versatile singer celebrates his 47th birthday today.
For the unversed, he started his career at the tender age of four when he accompanied his father for stage shows. In his late teens, he acquired immense fame by singing Mohammed Rafi songs. Sonu became a household name as the host of ZEE TV show Sa Re Ga Ma in the early 1990s. Soon after, his career as a singer in movies and as a pop sensation touched the skies.
Sonu Nigam, with several popular songs to his credit, has also been honoured with the National Film Award for Best Playback Singer (Male) for the title track of Kal Ho Naa Ho.
