“I am really fond of loud music that makes me groove to its beats. I like the kind of music that has a high base and the car vibrates when it is played. But there comes a time in everybody’s life where they prefer more silent and smooth music. So that phase has come in my life too, and in this phase, I have started to listen to a piece of smooth music, that can calm my nerves down and relax my mind.
Listening to such music I discovered the Singer Atif Aslam, with a meticulous voice. I heard his song in the morning and it just makes my day. Where the loud music sets me on fire with lots of energy, the music of Atif Aslam brings my nerves down and calms me all through. He has sung so many songs for the Bollywood industry, and in every song, he has t. When his song is up the channels, we get to know that this is Atif Aslam’s song. Getting such a recognition, I think, is a blessing for the singers.”

“I Believe that Music has the power to reduce our anxiety, it has the power to make us energetic, and it also has the power to make us cry. Sad songs have the power of catharsis, and the feeling that we are not able to vent out in any way, the sad song does it in seconds. There are so many songs, that after understanding their lyrics, we feel that this song is just made for me. I have gone through such a feeling several times.
And I love the singers who have that power in their voice which can bring goosebumps to a person. And for me the count of these types of singers is not much, I get goosebumps only on the singing of a few singers. One such singer that I like is Neha Kakkar. She is a beautiful singer with such a mellifluous voice. Some of her songs are so good that they just leave me dazed. Neha Kakkar is a female Punjabi singer, but she sings in such a way that it is understood by a layperson who is not a Punjabi.

Atif Aslam has a quiet personality which can also be understood from his singing style. He has that soothing singing style that mesmerizes you and takes you to the world of calmness and positivity. I am fond of many of his songs, and he has sung a good number of songs in the Bollywood movie, the favourite one is “Kung Faya”, which he sang in the movie Jodha Akbar.
It is such a wonderful song that no matter how disturbed you are, it will calm you down, will give you the right kinds of thoughts, and will give the Halo light to see the right direction. I don’t think many of the songs have this kind of magical power to calm the other person down. I listened to his song while I was going in my car to some destination, and it made me a fan of Atif Aslam. Reading more about him, I can associate him with his singing style, a calm personality who does not believe in talking too much.

I believe that Neha Kakkar is a versatile singer that is the reason she has reached to so great heights. He came in a reality show as a contestant and now she has reached a pedestal where now she is judging the singing show. I think it’s a great and tough journey that she has crossed. I love the realness in her music. She has a beautiful voice and whether she is singing a Punjabi or a Bollywood song. We can identify her voice and her lyrics are so clear and easy to understand.
When she sings in the show as well we can get to know that her real voice and the voice in her albums are the same and that her original voice without any music, is also so meticulous that you can listen to her for hours. She has appeared in various reality shows and we have got the opportunity to know how she is in person. She is such a jolly person and her smile is the star in her personality. She is the kind of person who laughs easily and even cries easily.

When there is a song playing and it is sung by Atif Aslam, we can identify his voice. I think it is a blessed voice that you can be identified in the crowd of thousands just by your voice. Atif Aslam has sung many great songs and after listening to Kung Faya I searched all his songs, and listen to them. I became a fan of most of his songs and they are at the top of my listening list nowadays.
But the one at the top is Kung Faya and I think it will remain for a long time. And one of the magical things is that one you hear him in his launched song and when you hear his original voice in various shows, you will get no difference. That is the least filtering of voice is done in his song. This is the quality that makes him a good singer, better than many of the singers who have filtered recording.

I love both types of her singing style, slow sad songs, and fast Punjabi songs which are so energetic. But when she sings smooth sad songs, no one can beat her singing style. She is a person that can be associated easily with anybody and she is also a small singer who had big dreams and she fulfilled them all. She is an inspiration to many women in the country, and she is continuously doing one or the other thing to make the singing talent of the country grow. So not only in singing but by her actions, behaviours, and personality, she can steal anybody’s heart. So I think I’ll continue to listen to her songs and will continue to love her singing.
