Google honored Mohammed Rafi’s 93rd birthday in traditional Google fashion with a doodle! Sunday’s doodle was created by Sajid Shaikh, who is a Mumbai based illustrator. The doodle, which is shown above shows the legendary singer in the middle of a studio with others.

Rafi was born on this day back in 1924 and loved to sing. “In the early 1930’s, a little boy named Pheeko (Rafi’s nickname) would wait for a traveling fakir to stop by his home village of Kotla Sultan Singh and follow him on his rounds, imitating his chants as they went along,” reads Google’s blog post.

Rafi sang over 5,000 songs including 310 songs in other Indian languages such as Bengali, Urdu, Marathi, Gujarati, Kannada, Odia, Punjabi, and Telugu, in a span of over three decades. He also sang non-film songs such as qawwalis, ghazals, and bhajans.

He also won a national award for playback singing for his song Kya Hua Tera Wada In Hum Kisise Kum Naheen (which was released in 1977). You can listen to the song below if you are interested!

Rafi had passed away in Mumbai on July 31st, 1980 due to a heart attack. He had reportedly recorded a song just hours before his death, meaning he went out doing what it was he loved most.
