The very famous singer KK died last night just hours after performing at a performance. His official Instagram profile features photos from a concert he performed 10 hours ago in a Kolkata theatre.

Krishnakumar Kunnath, better known by his stage name KK, was well known for songs like ‘Pal’ and ‘Yaaron,’ which became significant favourites among teenagers in the late 1990s and were frequently heard at school and college farewells and teen cultural events.

Pal, his debut album, was widely acclaimed in 1999. He began his career in playback singing in the early 2000s, recording a wide range of popular songs for Bollywood films.
KK has recorded songs in a variety of languages, including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, and Bengali.
