The old-aged singer couldn’t make it after over one month of Covid-19 treatment, leaving a void in the Indian music industry. Celebrities are sharing their condolence to the family.

The playback singer SP Balasubrahmanyam was born in June, 1946 in Tamil Nadu. He was also known as SP. Balu, SPB or Balu. The veteran singer passed away in the hospital in Chennai on September 25, 2020.

Sp Balasubrahmanyam Death
The youthful voice of SPB is forever remembered by millions of Indians.

During 55 years in his career, SP Balu has sung over 40,000 songs in Hindi, Telugu, Kannada, Tamil, Malayalam and 10 other Indian languages. He also won 6 National Film Awards for Best Male Playback Singer together with many Filmfare Awards or Nandi Awards.

For his contribution, the government of India has awarded him Padma Shri in 2001 and Padma Bhushan in 2011. Hardly is there any word that can describe his contribution to the development of Indian music as well as the national entertainment industry in general.

SP Balasubrahmanyam was hospitalized on August 5 after experiencing some mild symptoms of Covid-19. Though SPB said he only had a little discomfort with chest congestion, the legend singer then suffered more severe symptoms of the deadly infection.

SP Balu In Hospital
He was positive in the hospital, but his old age prevented him from winning this battle.

Even after he was admitted to MGM Healthcare, SP Balu was still very positive about his health condition. He shared in the video message that he would be discharged in two days and he would be fine. The singer said lots of people had called him but he couldn’t answer all. He just came there to take rest and there wouldn’t be any disturbance to him in the hospital.

SPB was moved to the intensive care unit on August 13 but witnessed improvement after September 19. However, the hospital announced his condition was ‘extremely critical’ yesterday.

Given his old age plus Covid-19, our legendary playback singer breathed his last today, surrounded by his family members.

SPB was married to Savithri. They had two children, Pallavi and SPB Charan. His son is also a singer and a film producer.
