On Sunday, February 6, 2022, the great Indian singer Lata Mangeshkar, also known as India’s Nightingale, died in Mumbai’s Breach Candy Hospital. After testing positive for COVID-19 on January 8, the veteran vocalist was taken to the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU). After testing positive for COVID-19 and undergoing numerous days of treatment, the singer died of severe organ failure, according to Breach Candy hospital officials.
Her death stunned her family, the Indian film industry, and her millions of followers all over the world.
Several high-profile figures, including Union Minister Piyush Goyal, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, and NCP leader Supriya Sule, paid a visit to the hospital on Saturday to check on the singer.
Mangeshkar was taken to the same hospital in November 2019 after experiencing breathing difficulties and being diagnosed with pneumonia. After 28 days, she was released.
Mangeshkar, who was born in Indore, has been the voice of screen idols for centuries. She began her profession at the age of 13 in 1942, and by the end of her seven-decade career, she had performed over 30,000 songs in numerous Indian languages.
Dil Mera Toda, her first hit song, was written for the film Majboor in 1948. Lata Mangeshkar gained tremendous acclaim the following year, 1949, with the song Aayega Aanewaala from the Madhubala-starrer Mahal. Mangeshkar never looked back after that, and he went on to become the most famous singer in Indian cinematic and musical history.
Sanjay Raut, a Shiv Sena MP, was one of the first politicians to post the news on social media. “The age is over,” he remarked in Marathi on Twitter.
Moreover, Mypencildotcom pays tribute to the legendary singer and may her soul rest in peace. She was a great soul and has contributed a lot to the country. “Her life was a blessing, her memory a treasure, she was loved beyond words and will be missed beyond measure”.
