Iconic singer Junaid Jamshed was a veritable powerhouse of talent. So it comes as no surprise that his fans are now scouring the internet to find old music videos of him. A little scouring of our own led us to some truly remarkable concert footage of Vital Signs.

In the videos we found, the then young pop singer is seen sporting a tight T-shirt and black jeans. One cannot imagine what fans at the time must have felt, but minutes into the concert footage one is clearly taken aback by the Junaid’s onstage presence and dashing good looks.

Profile: The enigma that was Junaid Jamshed

You have to see it to believe it:

Woh Kaun Thi

Tera Tou Rang Gora Hai 

Do Pal Ka Ye Jeevan

Junaid Jamshed died along with 47 others on Wednesday when a PIA ATR-42 aircraft crashed near Abbottabad. Born on September 3, 1964, Junaid shot to stardom in the 1980s as the front man of Vital Signs.

Junaid Jamshed’s legacy lives on

The band delivered several chart-topping numbers and became the first Pakistani band to achieve commercial success. In the late 90s, the band members went their separate ways, with Jamshed launching a solo career.

    Stop insulting JJ now. He was against these things and called them Un-Islamic. Recommend

    Actually, MS, you are 100% wrong. Go and rewatch all of JJ’s interviews. He wasn’t comfortable with the lifestyle he was leading with female adoration and such and decided rather to use his voice for a better purpose. Maybe initially he was rigid towards music, but we as human beings take deen and dunya together and he also learned to balance them. Watch his interview with Vasay Chaudry from just this year. He said VERY CLEARLY that he’s not ashamed of his entertainment past, that’s where he came from, he’s still friends with all those people and he’s proud of his songs (especially Dil Dil Pakistan). Do your own research before criticizing others. Recommend
