Ghazal singer Jagjit Singh passes away
Mumbai, Oct 10 (ANI): Renowned ghazal singer Jagjit Singh, who was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Mumbai's Lilavati Hospital last week, passed away on Monday. He was 70.
Jagjit Singh was admitted to the ICU reportedly due to a brain hemorrhage and he underwent an emergency neurosurgery on admission.
He is survived by his wife Chitra Singh, with whom he had produced several record breaking albums. Their only son Vivek Singh had died in a road accident in 1990.
Born on February 8, 1941, Jagjit Singh was a singer, composer, activist and entrepreneur. He has sung in several languages including Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi and Nepali.
Unlike other ghazal singers, Singh did not hesitate in lending his voice for films. His voice ruled during early 80's in films like Prem Geet, Saath Saath and Arth. However, his major work is spread over more than 60 filmy and non filmy albums.
Jagjit Singh was the first Indian music director to use the technique of multi-track recording for his album 'Beyond Time'. (ANI)
