Chitra Singh (born Shome) is a well known Indian ghazal singer. She with her husband Jagjit pulled the ghazal genre out of the drawing room of the elite and brought it to the masses. Respectfully known as the "king and queen of the Ghazal world," the husband and wife duo created some of the most successful Indian music of the 1970s and '80s.
Chitra Singh formed a ghazal singing duo with her husband Jagjit Singh. They married in 1969, and it was her second marriage. She hasn't sung since 1991 when the couple's 21 year old son (Vivek) died in a car accident. Chitra Singh's daughter from her first marriage (Monica Chowdhry) committed suicide in 2009.
