Search engine Google has changed its doodle to pay tribute to the late Pakistani singer Madam Noor Jehan on the occasion of her birthday. Noor Jehan is considered as one of the most prominent and influential singers to ever exist in South Asia.
Jehan, who is also known as the ‘Queen of Melody’, was born on this day in 1925 in Punjab’s Kasur.
In a career spanning over decades, the legendary singer had reportedly recorded around 10,000 songs.
Jehan’s biggest claim to fame was her role in lending her voice to boost the morale of Pakistani forces during the 1965 war — for which she was awarded the top-most civilian award ‘Tamgha-e-Imtiaz’.
The search engine today is shedding light on achievements of the iconic singer and it has also included an image gallery for her in its Google and Arts Culture section.
