Nazia Hassan (3 April 1965 – 13 August 2000) was a Pakistani pop singer. Her song, "Aap Jaisa Koi", from the Indian film Qurbani (1980) made her famous in Pakistan and all of South Asia in the 1980s. Her album, Disco Deewane (1981), charted in fourteen countries worldwide and became the best-selling Asian pop record a that time. Hassan earned degrees in economics and law at two prestigious London schools, Richmond, The American International University and the University of London. She also engaged in philanthropic activities, and was appointed by UNICEF as its cultural ambassador in 1991. She died of lung cancer in London on 13 August 2000 at the age of 35. The Nazia Hassan Foundation was established by Nazia Hassan's parents Basir and Muniza, her sister Zahra, her brother Zoheb, and her son Arez to continue Nazia’s social work. The foundation's goals include promoting harmony and peace amongst communities and encouraging the fusion of values and ideas of the East and the West.
