Today would have been Nazia Hassan’s 53rd birthday. She truly was a pop icon and a music sensation. This year, for her birthday, Google made an amazing ‘Doodle’ to commemorate the event, and her.
Upon seeing this, Pakistanis took to Twitter to express their gratitude and love.

It seems like everyone has memories associated with her and her music
Gorgeous, Queen of POP, Hypnotising looks, Mesmerising voice gone too soon. Whenever I listen her songs, I feel that she is the POP Star of this ERA. Thank you Google for honouring her on her 53rd Birth Anniversary.#NaziaHassan#PakistanZindabad pic.twitter.com/Nqt0xGOk87

This gesture also goes to show that she’ll never be forgotten

Google’s description of the Doodle makes the whole gesture all the more perfect. They describe her as Pakistan’s ‘pop sensation’, and they also add that their doodle aims to immortalize her.
“Our Doodle today imagines her performing with her famous flowing hair and dupatta (traditional Pakistani scarf), and the disco balls of the 80s glinting behind her.”
Oh, my heart!
It can’t be denied, Nazia Hassan was truly one of Pakistan’s best musical talents and there may not be one like her for a while. She took the nation by storm and won hearts, but she vanished too soon.
Rest in power Nazia!
