INDIA: India commemorates legendary singer Krishnakumar Kunnath, popularly known as KK on his birth anniversary. He was the only versatile singer of the 90’s generation who made people live through his songs. KK is a perfect precedent of how ‘life should be big and rather not be lengthy”.
To mark KK’s 54th birth anniversary, his kids, Nakul and Taamara have organised a concert, ‘KK Forever’ for his fans. His kids will be singing some of his soulful tracks at the concert.
Taamara posted some unseen pictures of the family saying, “Happy birthday dad, gonna miss wishing you 500 times today. And miss waking up and eating cake with you, hope you’re eating as much cake as you want to up there. And don’t worry we’re not gonna let mom feel sad today, we’ll annoy her so she’s angry. Hope you can hear us sing tonight dad, it’s all for you.”
Talking about the same in an interview with News 18, Nakul shared, “We thought that the best way to keep ourselves occupied and be focused and still give him a tribute was through a show. He loved being on stage and performing. The concert is the right thing to do. I can’t think of any other way to spend his first birth anniversary. To be honest, it’s a bitter-sweet feeling.”
He has ruled the music industry for almost 3-decades and left a benchmark. The multilayered singer sang more than 500 songs in Hindi and more than 200 songs in Telugu, Bengali, Kannada and Malayalam languages.
He left the world a little early but he made his life worth living, through the medium of his songs. The singer would have turned 54 today, but life is unpredictable thus he breathed his last on 31st May 2022.
During an ongoing live concert, KK felt unstable, so he was rushed to the nearby hospital where he was declared lifeless. An entire generation has rejoiced and celebrated his songs, some of his most famous songs are like Yaaron from the movie Pal (1999), Khuda Jaanefrom Bachna Ae Haseeno(2008), Zara Sa Jannat (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) (2008), Beete Lamhein from The Train (2007), O Meri Jaan from Life In A… Metro (2007) and so many more.
On the special occasion of his birthday wife took to her Instagram profile and shared a flashback, unseen photo with husband KK and captained it, “Happy Birthday Sweetheart Love you, miss you sooo much.”
In June, KK’s son Nakul Krishna penned down an emotional note dedicated to his father, “Took me a while to come to terms with what happened 3 weeks ago. Even now the pain is physical, like I’m being choked, as though people are standing on my chest. I wanted to say something, share anything about my dad but I finally understood immobility in a state of shock. I finally comprehend true pain, I’ve only now realised the privilege you granted me, not the privilege of a comfortable life, I always knew I was blessed in that regard. The greatest privilege I ever had was the opportunity to witness you every day.”
He added, “You always treated me like an equal while simultaneously protecting and shielding me. Treating me like an adult in conversation but calling to check up on me as soon as I left the house. Trusting me wholly no matter what I decided, allowing me to be myself, hearing me out and changing your opinions based on what I told you, being the open-minded forward thinking person that you were. People told me about their relationships with their fathers and I always found some things to be strange.”
