2SP Balasubramaniam

I would like to say he is No. 1 - Even today still his voice is so sweet and still is been picked to sing melodious songs most importantly...

He got more versatile voice than any one else in the field of male singers in South India and once in North India. I personally feel he is more greater than Gantasala Garu and Yesudas Garu because the way he sings the way he presents the song is just amazing. His vocal ability is more greater than any one.

Gantasala Garu and Yesudas Garu and rest of the singers can sing only in a particular way of style they can't change the pitch/vocal of the voice as per the song only the great Balu can sing. I'm sure Balu can sing the songs of Yesudas and Gantasala in a perfect way might not be in a similar voice but still he can present himself in a perfection way but none of the singes can sing like him.

He is unique to Film Industry just only one.

S.P. balu is the greatest playback singer india has produced. He can sing any kind of songs at any level for any aged actors. He has the greatest versatile voice.

He is a great person. I like his songs very much

3S.Janaki

MELODY QUEEN S. Janaki for all time. Other singers can sing only in a particular way of style they can't change the pitch/vocal of the voice as per the song only the great S. Janaki can sing. I'm sure SJ can sing the songs of P. Susheela and K.S. chitra in a perfect way might not be in a similar voice but still she can present herself in a perfection way but none of the singes can sing like her. She treats other singers as her frineds (she used to tell K.S. chitra as her daughter) and respects others talents also. SJ rocks ever...

She sang with 5 different voices in a song like a 6 years child, 16 years girl, 40 years lady, 70 years lady and also a male old aged male voice. None of the male singers sang with Female voice. So she is greatest Playback Singer, never before and never after.

SHE IS GREAT SINGER IN THE WORLD. I LOVE HER LIKE MY MOTHER. I PRAY TO GOD LONG LIVE AND SINGING ALSO. THANKS MA. YES YOU ARE MY MOTHER.

He is a good singer

4KS Chithra

K.S. chithra Crossing genres from classical to musical theatre to pop and beyond. "Chithra is undoubtedly THE greatest singer of all time. Her voice is so diverse! The ultimate Angel of Music! Chithra's vocal tone is unrivaled in beauty. Her passionate and insightful interpretations in all types of music (including classical, jazz, musicals, folk, pop, and classical crossover) transport the listener into a dreamscape of intoxicating beauty and have won her the most devoted fanbase imaginable. She is officially the biggest selling soprano in human history and beloved by those whose hearts are ravished by the unique voice of the Angel of Music. Chithra is the no. 1 singer of all time. The rest aren't fit to lace her boots. She has the most beautiful voice in the whole world! I have never in my life heard a voice as wonderful as hers. How many singers can boast a 3 decade career that's still going strong and is able to sing anything from classical to musical theatre to pop with ...more

She is melody queen in south India. His rendering is very good. Apart from the singing her humble and dedicated her work and kindness is the high quality of her character. I wish she would singing many more more years and blessing

She is like my mother. Everyday I used to hear her songs. The perfection of the notes and the soul of the songs which she delivered is amazing. It is not possible to compare her with any other singer. She is legendary. I pray to god everyday for her healthy and long life.

She crossing 3 decades from music

I just love her voice. I get the remembrance of Swarnalatha's voice.
According to me, She is An amazing singer. I Wish that at least in the next generation she should be born as my sister. Sis! You Rocks every time.

I don't know how to express my love towards her voice. She is the best singer with a saccharine voice. He sang in almost 17 languages th perfect diction. I like all her malayalam songs but I don't know malayalam

Shreya ghoshal is intelligent but inhumanity girl

Wow.. What a voice.. I melt hearing her song

6Gantasala

He is the greatest ever playback singer born - versatile music director and playback singer, what ever he sang was just perfect. A voice which had good depth and good range extending to 3 octaves. Ruled a film industry for nearly 3 decades for his entire life without any competition due to his genius skills and melodious voice. Passed away in 1974 but still enjoys huge popularity. Many of his statutes have been installed in Andhra pradesh, No other cine singer enjoys such popularity after 37 years of his passing away.

Ghantasala at the top - no surprise. What a melodious voice and range he had, even melodious than the instruments, greatly versatile. Peerless singer, remembered even after nearly 4 decades of his passing away. Only singer who dominated a film industry until his death.

Ghantasala is a divine singer with the most majestic melodious voice. His songs continue to mesmerise millions even today.

A rare voice which Tamil films failed to benefit adequately from but which Telugu did

T M S is the best & most versatile singer ever produced in South India

M H Parameshwara (Shiva), Delhi

Well said! He was the most versatile singer in Tamil industry. Even born in a sourashtra family, he pronounces Tamil excellently. Hats off to the legendary singer!

The only Tamil born legendary singer to have such a versatile and 'electronic' voice. Even popular Bollywood playback singers Mr. Mohammed Rafi and Mrs. Lata Mangeshkar knew him. It is noted that Mr. Rafi was an ardent fan of Mr. sounderarajan, when he sang at a function in north-India.

18Sujatha

She has very sweet voice. She is undoubtedly the best in 1990 to 2010 in Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu. She has recorded more songs in Hindi films also... Great singer

Sujatha needs to be in top 10. One of greatest playback singer in south India.

Sujatha completed more than 35 years in her carrier... Hats off... - BAIJUMICHAEL

She has very sweet voice. She is undoubtly the best only after K S chithra in 90's and 2000's in Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu. She has recorded more songs any other singer except K S chithra in these 3 languages

What a list is this. She is not in top 10. Rubbish. She is best after chithra

She is more like my mother
