Playback singer SP Balasubrahmanyam's health deteriorates, hospital says 'extremely critical'”

Celebrated singer S P Balasubrahmanyam, who was on life support system at Chennai's MGM Healthcare Hospital, passed away on Friday.

A six-time national award victor, Balasubrahmanyam, who had sung over 40,000 songs, was also honoured with the Padma Shri in 2001 and the Padma Bhushan in 2011.

SPB, as he was popularly known, began his career in Tamil and Telugu cinema in southern India - and became the first crossover singer who gained success in Bollywood.

Indian film actor Akshay Kumar mentioned a virtual concert he had hosted featuring Balasubrahmanyam in April during the COVID-19 lockdown in India. "His condition in the last 24 hours has deteriorated further warranting maximal life support and he is extremely critical", the health bulletin from MGM Healthcare stated.

Balasubramanyam was admitted to the hospital on August 5 after he showed mild Covid-19 symptoms. Also, the team actively collaborated with global experts from reputed centres in the United States and the UK that saw a slew of COVID-19 patients requiring ECMO support.

Although his father was a devotional singer, Balasubrahmanyam did not go through the rigours of learning classical music which was a norm at most homes. The 74-year-old had recovered and tested negative on September 8 but could not be taken off the ventilator because of the condition of his lungs, according to an update posted on social media by his son SP Charan earlier this month.

The singer had also appealed to people not to fall for such habits.

The music legend also holds a record for singing 21 songs in 12 hours for Kannada composer Upendra Kumar. He also reportedly recorded 19 Tamil songs in a day and 16 songs in a day in Hindi. In the movie, he provided the voice-over for Kamal Haasan.

He received numerous honours, including the Padma Bhushan, India's third highest civilian award, in 2011.
