Bhupinder Singh (born February 8, 1940) is an Indian musician, chiefly a ghazal singer and Bollywood playback singer. He was born in Amritsar, Punjab to Nattha Singh, a trained Sikh vocalist who also taught him the rudiments of singing. Early in his career, Bhupinder performed on All India Radio, Delhi. He was also attached to the Delhi Doordarshan Center, Delhi. He learnt to play the guitar and violin.

In 1964, music director Madan Mohan heard him over AIR, and called him to Bombay. He gave him a chance to sing the song Hoke Majboor Mujhe Usne Bulaya Hoga with Mohammad Rafi in Chetan Anand's Haqeeqat. Although the song was a hit, Bhupinder didn't get much recognition. He sang a few more songs in some low-budget films. Later, Bhupinder joined Rahul Dev Burman's orchestra and played guitar for many of his popular scores including Dum Maro Dum.

He became a good friend of R D Burman, who gave him a chance to sing in Gulzar's Parichay (1972). Bhupinder sang two songs in the movie, Beeti Na Beetai Raina and Mitwa Bole Meethe Bai, which gave him recognition as a singer. Bhupinder sang some more popular songs in Gulzar's movies. Some of these songs included "Dil Dhoondta Hai" from Mausam, "Naam Gum Jayega" and "Ek Akela Is Shaher Mein". Gradually, Bhupinder started releasing private albums.

His first LP had three self-composed songs and was released in 1968. In 1978, he released his second LP of ghazals, in which he introduced the Spanish guitar, bass and drums to the ghazal style. In 1980, he released his third LP titled Woh Jo Shair Tha, for which the lyrics were written by Gulzar. In the mid-1980s, Bhupinder married a Bangladeshi Hindu singer Mitali and moved away from playback singing.[2] Together, they perform at ghazal and live performances. Read more on Last.fm.
