Noted singer Shahnaz Rahmatullah died of heart attack early Sunday. She was 67.

Shahnaz breathed her last at her Baridhaara residence around 1:30 am after suffering a heart attack, said lyricist Shafiq Tuhin.

She left behind her husband, a son and a daughter.

The artist was born in Dhaka to M Fazlul Haque and Aasia Haque. Under her mother's watchful grooming, she was taught singing as a child and gained public recognition from a young age.

Her professional experience began at the age of 11, as a playback singer of Notun Shur (1963), and appeared on television from 1964.

All her life, she was revered also for ghazals. In recognition of her timeless songs, she was awarded Ekushey Padak, National Film Awards, Bangladesh Shilpakala Award and many more.

Shahnaz had wrapped up her career as a singer on personal grounds seven to eight years ago. The announcement came as a shock to many of her fans. She recorded three songs for an album, Badal Diner Pakhi, and that marked the end of the memorable career.
