Google doodle honours Pakistan's Nazia Hasan

ISLAMABAD - Google new doodle is paying tribute to original pop diva of Pakistan Nazia Hassan. The late pop icon would have turned 53rd today.

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.

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.
