Love. It's an emotion that crosses all barriers of age, religion, boundaries and nationalities. A feeling that is experienced at least once in our lifetime and is surely a predisposition equaling to a huge gamble. However, it is very popularly said that music is a guide to revealing true feelings of love. A song is played and you end up sailing in the boat of life's precious moments as if that one song represents your journey. What we are saying is that music is an essential element of our life. So this Valentine's season, we promise to take you on a musical journey across what all romantic songs surely defined - pure and sacred love.

Last week, we brought to light a few of those brilliant male singers who are still entertaining us with their stupendous romantic hits and their soulful voices. This week, we bring the second and final part. BollyCurry takes a look at the best romantic female voices that complete every song in their mesmerizing voices and make us croon to their soft and gentle melodies.

The Nightingale of India and the holder of the prestigious "Bharat Ratna", Lata Mangeshkar, is the queen of music. A Guinness record holder for recording the highest number of songs, Lata ji started her career with Marathi films but initially struggled to make it big in the Hindi music arena. After being discovered however, she gifted the Indian music industry some of the most soulful and heart warming numbers as a solo or a duet. Her most successful pairing was with Kishore Kumar and Mohd.Rafi. Such is the diverse range of Lata ji's songs that it is unlikely you will find one concrete list, but BollyCurry brings to you the best of the best. These songs shall forever be regarded as her evergreen hits: "Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya", "Ajeeb Dastaan Hai Yeh", "Aye Mere Watan Ke Logo",  "Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna Hai",  "Hothon Pe Aisi Baat", "Humko Hum Hi Se",  "Tere Liye" and "Do Pal" . Her journey has truly been a blessing for all of us and we wish that this singer continues to enthral us in the years to come!

Shreya Ghoshal
It's a dream journey for every singer to be honoured with the prestigious National Award for their debut film. Starting her career with the musical epic, Devdas, Shreya was awarded for her soulful crooning of the all time hit "Dola Re". The pretty lass, oozing with talent, later went on to become the country's best singer. Her talent, her soft, sweet and soulful voice, instantly made her a director's favourite. Her evergreen hits include the sensuous "Jaadu Hai Nasha Hai", romantic songs such as "Bairi Piya", "Dola Re", "Wada Raha", "Pyar Ki Ek Kahaani", "Piyu Bole", "Agar Tum Mil Jao", "Teri Ore", "Bahara", "Teri Meri Prem Kahani" and the recent "Saans". Her voice as sweet as honey and as soulful as a prayer, let's hope she keeps on giving us such magnificent music for eternity.

Alka Yagnik
This talented Bengali singer began her career as a six year old and later went on to become India's finest singing sensations. Capturing millions in seconds after her renditions of love ballads, she was an overnight success with the crooning of "Ek Do Teen", bringing to the world the beauty of Alka and Madhuri Dixit. Her most hits as a duet singer came in combination with Udit Narayan. She saw her career turning when she sang the love songs, "Akela Hain To Kya Ghum Hai " and "Ae Mere Humsafar". She later gave many hits which comprise of evergreen hits such as, "Mera Dil Bhi Kitna", "Dekha Hai Pehli Baar", "Tu Shayar Hai", "Baazigar O Baazigar", "Ae Mere Humsafar","Raja Ko Rani Se", Jaati Hoon Main", "Pardesi Pardesi", "Kitna Pyara Tujhe Rab", "Poocho Zara Poocho", "Aaye Ho Meri Zindagi Mein, "Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna", "Tumhi Dekho Na", "Lakdi Kyun", "Hum Tum"," Laal Dupatta", "Oodhni", "Suraj Hua Madham", "Bole Chudiya" and "Yeh Ladki Hai Allah". Alka Yagnik is the only female singer to have bagged seven Filmfare awards for her singing talent. Though she now sings only selected songs, we wish that she would give us many songs in the years to come.

Kavita Krishnamurthy
A Kannada classical singer, Kavita Krishnamurthy possesses that unique voice which suits a variety of songs and actresses ranging from the classical and the romantic numbers. Her career profile proves that she definitely was an all rounder performer, giving classical as well as romantic hits. Her beautiful compositions include "Tu Hi Re", "Nayak Nahi Khalnayak Hoon Main", "Nimbooda Nimbooda", "Que Sera Sera", "Aankhon Ki Gustakhiyan",  "Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam" , "Woh Hadki Hai Kahan", "I Love You",  "Hawa Hawai", "Pyar Hua Chupke Se", "Mera Piya Ghar Aaya", "Ishq Bina", "Dola Re", "Aaj Main Upar" and  "Achchi Lagti Ho". She has also performed various other forms of music like Ghazals and Devotional Songs but her unique contribution to romantic songs is unparalleled.

Sunidhi Chauhan
Sunidhi, the eternal success, rose to fame with a singing reality show Meri Awaz Suno at the tender age of four. She gained immense popularity with her off beat song, "Ruki Ruki Si Zindagi" from Mast.  Being very fond of Western music and her voice lending her support, she soon rose to be a great playback singer. Though bonding more with her western music, she gave us some of the most rendering compositions such as "Bumbro", "Mehboob Mere", "Mere Zindagi Mein Ajnabee", "Ishq Kabhi Kariyo Na", "Aa Zara", "Ishq Sufiyana", "Gun Gun Guna",  "Mar Jaiyan", "Jabse Mere Dil Ko Uff" and "Yaariyan Reprise". The more youthful generation loves romance in as genre and Sunidhi is definitely in demand to provide music that fills the gap.

After giving you a soulful journey of the current and evergreen singers to have graced the music industry, we come to a conclusion. As the journey goes on, new singers emerge and new songs come by, these singers shall always have a place in our hearts. New songs will be sung and fans will groove, but the fragrance of yesteryears will always linger. Romance will be reinvented and it will become more passionate but these evergreen hits will make you remember your sweet moments gone by. These singers shall always hold a extraordinary place in our hearts and we salute them.
