The music legend was on life support after his condition deteriorated over the last 24 hours.

Legendary Indian singer S P Balasubramanyam who had been admitted to a Chennai hospital with Covid 19 symptoms in August has passed away. He was 74 years old.

The news of the sudden deterioration of the health of one of India’s greatest playback singers was announced on Thursday by the hospital in Chennai where the singer had admitted himself on August 5.  

Authorities had announced last month that he had been shifted to the ICU and was on life support.  Later his family had assured fans the singer was on the road to recovery.

Balasubrahmanyam, who has worked across Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Hindi and Malayalam film industries and rendered thousands of ever-green songs, was admitted to the hospital in Chennai on August 5 following complaints of cold and “on and off” fever for two-three days then.

On September 7, Balasubrahmanyam’s son, SP Charan had given the update that the legendary singer had tested Covid-19 negative.

A leading figure in Indian cinema, Balasubrahmanyam, known to fans simply as “SPB” or “Balu,” has more than 1,000 credits as a playback singer — a voice artist who records songs that are later mimed by actors in films — in languages including Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, English, Bengali and Punjabi.
