“21st June“(the longest day of the year), is observed zestfully and exuberantly, as ‘International Day of Music’ globally. The observance of this day ecstatically, thus, verifies or endures the roaming assumption in the hearts and minds of music admirers that Music is the voice of the soul. And yes, it’s. Every existence in the world, whether, it’s a prodigious star or an invisible particle of Sahara Desert, has a peculiar music in it. This peculiarity in music is deterministic to transforming the gloomy aspects of the universe to the glittering or exulting ones. Keeping in view such proliferation of tranquility through music, I have assembled some distinguished songsters and their songs, from Pakistan and Hollywood in this article. They are eulogized underneath:
NABEEL SHAUKAT ALI

A conspicuous alteration appeared in his career, when he was extoled incessantly, after the release of his OST ‘Do Bol’, sung with Aima Baig. His other noteworthy songs, which must be listened, are ‘Bewajah’, ‘Yariyan’, ‘Ruseya Rawe’, and ‘Aey Zindagi’.
RAHAT FATEH ALI KHAN
The nephew of Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, who outwent in the genre of ‘Qawali’ during 1980s and 90s, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, doesn’t necessitate an introduction. His name suffices the musical caliber of his as he has performed around the globe, especially at United Nations.

Notable songs of Rahat are: ‘Zaroori Tha’, ‘Afreen Afreen’, ‘Jag Soona Soona Lage’, ‘Bol Na Halke Halke’, and OST ‘Khaani’.
It has been now 1.5 decades that, this persistent melodist is singing delightfully and we are listening to his Romantic numbers unceasingly.

The artist’s other songs are: ‘Afreen Afreen’, ‘Ishq Hua Jo Tari’, ‘Cricket Jooray’, and ‘Awari’.
If you search this man on Google, you will find out at the top of the search’s results about him, “Pakistan Music Composer”. But, I can guarantee you that, he is a far better singer than a composer. He is the band leader and leading vocalist of a rock band, Roxen, formed in 2004. The songs, which come under his excellence in music, are: ‘Bhula Dena’, ‘Tera Mera Rishta’, ‘Toh Phir Aao’, and ‘Zaroorat’.

Popular American pop singer and songwriter, who co-wrote, co-produced and performed ‘See You Again’ with Wiz Khalifa as his debut single, becoming the momentous success, was born on 2nd of December, 1991.

His second album ‘Voicenotes’, inclusive of the song “Attention”, has marked recognition. ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’, ‘Does It Feel’, and ‘How Long’ are the treat to listen.
The imitator and enthusiast of Usher’s dance moves, who became known for his harmonious voice and physically assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, another accomplished pop star and dancer, was born in Tappahannock, Virginia on 5th of May, 1989. He won Grammy Award for R & B (rhythm and blues) in 2009 for his album “F.A.M.E”, the 3rd album of his. Before this, his song “Run It” from his first self-titled album had made him a listeners’ top choice. Brown’s some songs, which need no recognition, are: ‘No Guidance, ‘Five More Hours’, and ‘Look at Me Now’.
Aged 32, 5 feet and 6 inches tall spirited fashion figure pop/rock singer, who learnt Electronica in University of Kent, during her stay over there for two years, is credited to have marked her appearance in the music industry, incomparable to her contemporaries with her album “Lights” (2012).

Shayne ward tried his luck in UK-based musical talent hunt, The X Factor, where all the group members of One Direction were fused by Simon Cowell, but was eliminated from 30 finalists, yet left a mark of his music prowess, defeating the rivals, Journey South and Andy Abraham. Furthermore, his debut single, “That’s My Goal” prompted an unusual drift towards the newer heights. His songs worth listening are the following: ‘No Promises’, ‘Breathless’, ‘The Way You Were’, and Some Tears Never Dry’.
Besides these proficient and tuneful singers, one should listen to the people, highly lyrical, such as Selena Gomez, Eminem, Wiz Khalifa, Ariana Grande, Nirmal Roy, Farhan Saeed, Ali Sethi, Zeb Bangash and Sanam Marvi.
