Google dedicates doodle to singer Mohammed Rafi

IANS | Mumbai |

On the 93rd birth anniversary of Bollywood singer Mohammed Rafi, search engine Google dedicated its doodle to the legendary musician on Sunday.

The doodle shows Rafi recording in a studio, while actors are lip syncing onscreen.

Born on December 24, 1924, Rafi took the Indian music industry by storm with his entry as a playback singer in 1941 and never looked back till his sudden death in 1980 at the age of 55.

His songs like “Yeh duniya yeh mehfil”, “Chura liya hai tumne”, “Tum jo mil gaye ho” and “Kya hua tera wada” are still famous amongst today’s young generation.

Rafi left behind a treasure trove of immortal songs — solos as well as duets with popular singers of his era. He sang qawwalis, ghazals, disco and pop in Hindi and various other Indian languages.

He died on July 31, 1980 due to heart attack.
