Kk aka Kunnath Kanakavalli’s voice is not just a voice but an emotion when one talks about his songs. From working as a salesman to becoming a singing sensation, he has won many hearts. The Delhi-born singer is no more but he is still alive in our hearts and through his songs. Let’s have a look at lesser-known facts, his music growth, and much more about KK.
KK’s musical journey with his golden voice
KK debuted in movies by singing Chod Aaye Hum Wo Galiyan along with Hariharan, Vinod Sehgal, and Suresh Wadkar from a movie called Maachis, which was composed by Vishal Bhardwaj. In his entire 3 decades career, KK lent his voice to 11 different languages like Assamese, Kannada, Malayalam, Gujarati, Telugu, Tamil, Bengali, as well as Hindi, and over a thousand advertisement jingles.
His journey in music started at a very young age by listening to his mother’s Malayali songs. After stepping into the musical field, he sang 500 Hindi songs like Tadap Tadap Ke, O Meri Jaan, Aashayein, Kya Mujhe Pyaar Hai, Tu Hi Meri Shab Hai, Khuda Jane, and many more songs. Apart from Indian songs, he also lent his voice in 2008 for Hum TV’s Pakistani drama The Ghost, and the song’s name is Tanha Chala. Furthermore, he also voiced an English Rock Ballad “Cineraria”.
The last released song of KK was Yeh Hausle from the 83 movies starring Ranveer Singh. According to the sources, he had also recorded his voice for the Salman Khan Starred film Ek Tha Tiger which is speculated to release in 2023.
KK was an Untrained musician
You won’t believe that KK was not a trained musician or singer. When he was a kid, he used to attend music classes. But due to a lack of interest, he stopped. Once in an interview with the Times of India, KK said that he was able to learn a song by listening to it. Later on, he realized that his favorite singer Kishoreda had never attended music school either. So KK got more motivated and learned music from his perceptions
KK’s Daughter Tamara shares a heartfelt letter for him on father’s day
After 3 weeks after KK’s demise, Tamara shared an emotional Instagram post for her dad on Father’s day along with some throwback pictures of herself, KK, and her brother Nakul. In the letter, she wrote, “I would take the pain of losing you 100 times if it meant having you as my dad even for one second. Life is dark without you dad. You were the cutest, most loving dad, who’d come home after a gig and wait to come to lie down and give us cuddles.”
“Me, Nakul, and mumma are gonna work every day to make you proud, and spread your energy, and we’re gonna be strong and take care of each other as you did. Happy Father’s Day to the bestestest dad in the whole universe. Love you forever, miss you every day, umma, I know you’re here with us.” she concluded.
