ABOUT // MISS POOJA
Miss Pooja (born 4 December, 1980 as Gurinder Kaur Kainth) is a Indian professional singer. Before she embarked on her professional singing career, she received a Master's degree in music and worked as a music teacher in Patel Public School in Rajpura, India. She chose Miss Pooja as her professional name because "Pooja" was her childhood nickname.
She is widely regarded as having revived Punjabi duet songs. During the late 1980s to the early 21st century, Punjabi duet songs were often given second place by DJs. However, Miss Pooja's duets often get played at the top of the party. She has become the largest-selling female bhangra artist in India and overseas. A partial reason for her success is the rapid increase in the number of songs that she continues to record. She has released duets with more than 70 different male singers.
Miss Pooja started her career with Darshan Khella and released the album Jaan to Piyari. It was released in January 2006. Since then, she has recorded duets with other artists on over 3,000 songs and has released over 350 albums. From 2007 until now, she has toured Canada, United States, India, Europe, and Australia performing in live concerts. In 2009, her first solo album was Romantic Jatt. In 2010, her first two films were Panjaban and "Channa Sachi Muchi". In 2012, she shot a music video for the song "Shona Shona" in Hong Kong from her third solo album called Jattitude that was released on the same year. In 2013, her third film was "Pooja Kiven Aa".
