Hady Mirza (born January 28, 1980) is the winner of the second season of Singapore Idol. He was crowned the winner on 25 September 2006 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium after garnering 70% of about one million votes cast by television viewers.
Hady is most known for his smooth R&B voice and charming personality. He is the second male winner, following in the footsteps of his favourite idol, Taufik Batisah.
His Zodiac Sign is Aquarius.


Hady started singing at the age of 8 and instantly fell in love with it because of the passion in each individual genre. It is a way for him to convey his emotions and express himself freely. On the show Hady was known for his diverse versatility singing not only R&B, but Pop, Rock and Soul.
His occupation was a pub performer but he wished to be a professional soccer player growing up. The song that would describe him best is "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen because of the flow of feelings and brilliant arrangement.
Three words Hady has used to describe himself are: simple, strong-willed and stubborn. He says he is good at ball games, entertaining guests and making scrambled eggs.
His favourite singers include John Legend, Robbie Williams, Babyface, Boyz II Men, Peter Cetera and Jamie Cullum. He has a very tight knit family and friends and is very grateful to all those who believe in him, especially his mum.
Hady's debut album, self-titled Hady Mirza, was released in Singapore on 13 November 2006 and achieved Platinum status within 4 days of release. The album will be repacked with additional materials.
In June 2007, Hady was awarded with two major awards in Anugerah Planet Muzik 2007, a yearly malay music award show awarding the best musicians in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. Hady was voted "Most Popular Artiste (Singapore)" and his self-penned malay single "Merpati" was voted "Most Popular Song (Singapore)"
Hady Mirza was also chosen to sing an exclusive song "You and I" for Police Week 2007 held in conjunction with Police Day Parade 2007. Hady also specially recorded a song commissioned by Singapore Land Authority Transport for the grand opening of the KPE Tunnel.
