Born on September 3, 1964, the pop singer-turned-evangelist shot to stardom and became a household name in the 1980s as the front man of the celebrated Vital Signs.

The band delivered several chart-topping numbers, including the timeless classic Dil Dil Pakistan, dubbed the unofficial national anthem of Pakistan. Other songs included Tum Mil Gaye, Aitebaar and Who Kaun Thi.

Vital Signs gained national and international acclaim, becoming the first Pakistani band to achieve commercial success.

In 2004, Jamsheds life took a dramatic turn as he announced to quit his illustrious music career opting to focus on religion, and began preaching on TV.
