Legendary singer Krishnakumar Kunnath, also known as KK, died due to a heart attack hours after a concert in Kolkata on May 31. Kunnath experienced chest pain while staying in a hotel after the concert. He was rushed to the CMRI hospital but was declared bought dead. The 53-year-old was famous for songs such as Pal, Yaaron, Khuda Jaane, Tu He Meri Shab hai, Zara Sa, and many more.
For the unversed, the late singer has recorded songs in various Indian languages such as Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, and Bengali. Notably, during the concert, he sang ‘Hum, rahen ya na rahen kal…’ which is considered a timeless classic song. The concert was held in an auditorium known as Nazrul Mancha. A lot of people saw the last glimpses of the legend.
He was a big believer in forgetting about his condition and performing on the stage. He also once said that an artist has certain energy when he or she is on the stage.
“There is a certain energy an artiste gets when he or she is on stage. No matter what one’s condition is, once I am on stage, I forget everything and simply perform,” KK had said in his memoir on his official website, The Mesmerizer.
Meanwhile, a lot of current and former Indian cricketers have expressed their disappointments on Twitter. Virender Sehwag wrote “Tragic to hear about the passing away of KK after falling ill while performing in Kolkata. Another reminder of how fragile life is. Condolences to his family and friends. Om Shanti.”
“Deeply saddened by the passing of KK. Condolences to his family and friends,” wrote former India captain and former head coach Anil Kumble.
“Saddened by the untimely demise of a wonderful Singer, KK. He will live on through his music. My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. Om Shanti,” VVS Laxman tweeted.
“Devastated to know about the sudden death of playback singer #KK. His soulful & melodious songs could easily connect with the hearts of millons of people. My heartfelt condolences to his family, friends, and followers. May his pious soul rest in peace,” read former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh’s tweet.

I would like to show thanks to this writer just for rescuing me from such a situation. After scouting throughout the search engines and coming across suggestions which were not beneficial, I assumed my entire life was well over. Being alive devoid of the solutions to the difficulties you’ve fixed all through the posting is a serious case, and those which may have in a wrong way damaged my career if I hadn’t noticed the blog. The know-how and kindness in touching almost everything was precious. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a stuff like this. I am able to at this time look forward to my future. Thanks very much for the impressive and sensible guide. I won’t hesitate to endorse your blog to anyone who needs guidance on this situation.
