On the night of May 31, 2022, the world lost another gem who will live on in our hearts forever. Renowned Indian singer Krishnakumar Kunnath, popularly known by his stage name KK, died at the age of 53. However, he died while doing what he loved: performing in a concert, but left generations of people heart broken by the tragic news.
The playback singer was in Kolkata for a two-day concert when he became ill at a Nazrul Mancha event. After complaints of uneasiness, he was rushed to a private hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
KK was a versatile singer whose songs touched people's emotions and got him a fan following across generations. With his soulful songs, he created an unforgettable era, and we all grew up with him. The singer has left us today, but his legacy will live on.

Remembering the singer, here are some of his best songs that will live on in our hearts forever:
KK's popular song 'Yaaron,' which was released in 1999, is to date regarded as an anthem for friendship across generations. The song has a lovely meaning, but it's the singer's melodious voice that captures our hearts and makes us fall in love with it.
Mera Pehla Pehla Pyar
We all heard the beautiful song Mera Pehla Pehla Pyar from the movie Mera Pehla Pehla Pyar when we first fell in love, and it enhanced our experience of our first love. Doesn't this music bring back memories of your first love every time you listen to it? Thank you, KK, for blessing us with this song.
Movie Tum Mile's song 'Dil Ibadat', sung by KK, is one of the most romantic songs of all time. A sense of calmness is felt when one hears his melancholic voice in this song. To this day, listening to this music has the same effect: magical.
Dil Kyu Ye Mera
'Dil Kyu Ye Mera' is not just a song but an emotion. This song touched so many hearts and made confessing love to our loved ones easier. KK's voice in this song is wonderful, and once you hear it, you'll want to listen to it again and again.
Party On My Mind
The song 'Party on My Mind' from the movie Race 3 is a must-have for any party. This amazing song, sung by KK, is yet another gem.
'Woh Lamhe' from Kya Mujhe Pyaar Hai is an ultimate love song that also made us doubt if we are in love. Many love stories started because of this song. We owe Kk a huge debt of gratitude for this music.
Sach Keh Raha Hai Deewana
KK's songs are our go-to tunes not just during love or friendship, but also during heartbreak. 'Such Keh Raha Hai' from the 2001 movie 'Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein' is one among such songs that also brings nostalgia. The type of magic created by KK in this song is really heart touching.
Ankhon Mein Teri
Another beautiful song done by the legendary vocalist KK is Ankhon Mein Teri from Om Shanti Om. Every line in the song has a magical effect to it, and I recall binge-listening to it when it first came out.
Pal is an incredible song, which was also the last song sung by the legendary singer KK. And now, more than ever, we can completely relate to it.
"Hum, rahen ya na rahen kal
Kal yaad aayenge ke ye pal
Pal, ye hain pyar ke pal
Chal, aa mere sang chal..."
KK's last song performed during the Kolkata event was also Pal.
