Google honours prominent personalities and occasions with special logos that it calls ‘doodles’. This doodle is not only being showed to users in Pakistan but also to those in Canada, Iceland, Australia and New Zealand.

Nazia Hassan began her professional career in 1980 at a tender age of fifteen and also sung along with his brother Zohaib Hassan in several songs.

She got fame from her solo song “Aap Jaisa Koi Meri Zindagi Mein Aaye”. Her other famous songs include “Boom Boom”, “Lekin Mera Dill”, “Disco Deewany”, “Ajnabi”, “Aao Na”, and “Dosti”.

Describing the doodle, Google writes:

“When young Pakistani girls in the 1980s closed their eyes and clutched a pretend mic in their hands, swaying and singing, a major inspiration was Nazia Hassan. Hassan, sometimes referred to as the “Princess of Pop”, was a sensation the likes of which hadn’t been seen in the region in years. Young and graceful, with long flowing hair, she charmed the country by belting out favorite songs “Disco Deewane” and “Boom Boom” alongside her brother Zohaib.

She was not only a talented singer, but also a devoted scholar and humanitarian. Using her law degree, she worked at the U.N. as well as for UNICEF.
