Singer, composer, awesome human being – A. R. Rahman is the angel born on earth. With numerous accolades (2 Oscars included) and a voice that makes every soul ache, Rahman is the maestro of music, but we don’t have to tell you that do we? There is seldom anyone who hasn’t heard or sung his songs, so on his birthday, we only want to listen to his live performances that show his skills which make him what they are!

Our National Anthem hits every Indian differently, but when it’s in Rahman’s voice? Utter, utter magic.
Khwaja Mere Khwaja is the ultimate sufi song, and Rahman’s voice lends it that extra umphf that elevates the song to a different spiritual plane.

A young Rahman wows the audience with a rendition of Maa Tujhe Salaam, and we can clearly see his passion for the art.
Happy Birthday, Rahman Sir!
