She could sing in several languages including Urdu, Hindi, Punjabi and Sindhi, making her one of the most influential singers of all time in South Asia.

Noor Jehan sang 12 war songs which were recorded and broadcasted by Radio Pakistan during the 1965 war. She was given the title of Malika-e-Tarannum (the Queen of Melody) in Pakistan for her services during the war, and was popularly known as Madam by her adoring fans. Being surrounded by multitudes of people did not faze her and she was accustomed to being admired.

Here she is seen with her son-in-law, Haroon Rasheed, and relatives from his bridal party.
