In today’s world, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is ushering in a transformative era, enabling feats that were once deemed impossible just a decade ago. The capabilities of AI are expanding beyond imagination – from generating a 10,000-word thesis in seconds to resurrecting the voices of long-departed individuals. Social media is currently witnessing a captivating trend where beloved songs are being reimagined in the voices of different singers, a testament to AI’s prowess.
Remembering Lata Mangeshkar through AI: A Viral Sensation

AI’s Musical Alchemy: Resurrecting Legends
A notable surge in AI-altered musical renditions has emerged on social media, captivating audiences with its ability to swap the voices of contemporary singers with those of legends who have left the world. In one instance, the song ‘Lut Put Gaya’ from Shahrukh Khan’s latest film, Dunki, took a mesmerizing turn when the late Mohammed Rafi’s voice replaced the original rendition by Arijit Singh. While Arijit Singh’s performance was commendable, hearing the song in Rafi’s voice was a surreal experience for the ardent fans of the revered singer.
