Alka Yagnik is an Indian playback singer. She is noted in Indian cinema for a career spanning over three decades. She is a record seven-time winner from a record of 36 nominations of the Filmfare Award for Best Female Playback Singer, a two-time recipient of the National Film Award as well as several other music awards.
