Be it romance or heartbreak, one man whose voice can convey both the expressions really well is Jagjit Singh. The late Ghazal singer was known for his distinctive melodious voice. Born on February 8, 1941, Jagjit Singh was one of the most popular singers in the country.

Often called the 'Ghazal King' by his fans and peers, Jagjit was born in Sriganganagar, Rajasthan, to Amar Singh Dhiman, a government employee, and Bachan Kaur. He had four sisters and two brothers and was called Jeet by his family. He was raised as a Sikh by religion. His birth name was Jagmohan but his Sikh father rechristened him as Jagjit following the advice of his guru. It was his father, who first recognised his son's talent. He sent young Jagjit to learn the nuances of music under a blind teacher, Pandit Chhaganlal Sharma. He later trained under Ustad Jamal Khan of Sainia gharana for six-years and gained knowledge in Khayal, Thumri and Dhrupad forms.

On the occasion of his 77th birth anniversary, here are some of the most melodious ghazals by Jagjit Singh.
