You may have heard and loved the songs that she gave her voice to. Many of them like the ones from Aashiqui 2, R…Rajkumar, Gabbar Is Back, Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo, and more recently M.S. Dhoni have become chartbusters over the years.
But today we will tell you more about the inspirational work she has been doing for the past 20 years!
Yes, she has been involved in philanthropy for almost two decades now.
She started singing at the age of four and in 1999, when she was seven, the Kargil war broke out. She spent a week singing at shops in her home city, Indore, to raise funds for the families of deceased Indian soldiers. Her efforts received substantial coverage in Indian media and she raised Rs. 25,000. Later that year, she sang to raise funds for victims of the 1999 Odisha cyclone. In 2001 she raised around Rs. 10 lakh for the victims of 2001 Gujarat earthquake.

She also established the "Palak Muchhal Heart Foundation" with her younger brother, Palash. The sister-brother duo organizes stage-shows across the world in which they sing up to 40 songs per show to raise funds for the Foundation. As of August 2015, funds raised by her has helped to save lives of 800 children.
Her charitable work has also got her featured in both “Guinness Book of World Records” and “Limca Book of World Records” for great achievements in social work.
She can sing in 17 different languages and performs in the same during her stage shows.
Needless to say, this young woman is an inspiration and we salute her for this selfless endeavor.
