Singer Shamshad Begum

Legendary Shamshad Begum's "Kabhi aar kabhi paar" and "Leke pehla pehla pyaar" still spread the same magic that the songs used to when she sang them more than five decades ago.

A singer with many hits, Shamshad Begum bid adieu to the world Tuesday, but her songs will keep her alive in the hearts of music lovers. She was 94.

One of the first female playback singers of the Hindi film industry, the Padma Bhushan awardee was known for clarity in her voice.

True to the lyrics of her song "Teri mehfil mein kismat aazma kar hum bhi dekhenge", she tried her luck in filmdom and reached the dizzy heights of stardom.
