Top Ten Best Indian Singers

Best singers of all time world have ever produced by the originator of Music yes who else INDIA....
The Top Ten
1 Mohammad Rafi Mohammed Rafi was an Indian playback singer and one of the most popular singers of the Hindi film industry.

The most versatile singer India has ever produced, sang each song with such distinction, that left the listeners spellbound. The effortless transition across the entire range without any strand of strain, flawless emoting made him the king of playback singing... No doubt his humility, unassuming attitude, soft spoken nature, and reverence for mankind produced such a voice which came direct from heart... It's true that music is about emotion and not only technicalities, and he was master of both

Rafisaab has song all types of music soft, loud, happy, sad. He is total of Lata Asha Gitadutta and all other female singer = Mohd. Rafi.
He bust the carrier of Rajendrakumar, Dilipkumar, Shammikapoor, Dharemendra, Jitendra and many more. He was very polite and soft spiking man but when he sing songs like Dil Ke zarokhe (Brahmachari) you can not immage that this song is sang by Rafisaab. He has visited border at the time of India Pakistan war to bust the morale of our army, hence Pakistan Govt. Has censor his song for some time. Even though there are huge fan in Pakistan.

He is the best singer India has ever seen. Lata, Kishore, Mukesh, Manna they are all below him and many of them have said this themselves.

People saying "Lata is better than Rafi" should listen to "Dil Tera Deewana Hai Sanam". In that song (and many more deuts), the difference in quality is noticeable!

He has sung songs that are out of this world. His professionalism was second to none and ability to take on the character on the screen was extraordinary. He could improvise like one else could and his ability to change scales very quickly was unmatched. His voice suited the fakir like no one else's did while matching the heroes, villains and comedians of the time. His was the voice could start a song with the needed nagma before the music actually kicked in. In spite of all that, he had some humility and gentlemanly-conduct left in him which must have been a tough act given how the rest of his peer-group managed (or mismanaged) that aspect. Was he the greatest? No (he died before he could gather all the check-marks). Was he the best? Oh Yes.

2 Sonu Nigam Sonu Nigam is an Indian playback singer, live performer, host and actor. He sings in Hindi and Kannada language films.

He attached with every generation in case of arjit singh only youth attachment . Sonu nigam is all rounder. Many number of songs are different live performance of sathia song very good tribute AR rehman his vocal tune is very good he sung old and new song very greatly

He is the best singer ever. No can beat him as he is such a singer who can sing any type of music from devotional to remix perfectly.

Sonu nigam is the greatest singer ever, well I tell you why -he has the most melodious voice my ear have heard, took a v. Hard challenge by singing songs of Md. Rafi to tribute him and some songs like 'tum mujhe yu bhula na'and many better than Rafi saab(sorry to rafi and his fans )this is itself a biggest thing, then now a days he sings that sort of songs as if those are made especially for him because songs are v. Hard and made me think if he had not present those songs would have not been so good. He has sung all the forms of singing present, better than the maestros present especially for that. This is a ridiculous thing. I wonder how one can do this, hats off to him he is a true legend if not more...

Never ever heard a singer who can not make faults... But the real strength that Sonu posses is that he can sing a classical song as if a classically trained voice is singing.. Then if you see the transformation from Eastern to western that is again just too good, one may get an impression that he is a western singer.. Similarly be it dance, pop, ghazal, qawalli, romantic, bhajan, naat, songs in different languages, rock, jazz etc etc.. What ever genre you may hear you will be bound to believe that he is the singer of only that genre! In short the real meaning of VERSATILITY is SONU NIGAM!

3 Shreya Ghoshal Shreya Ghoshal is an Indian playback singer. She has received twelve National Film Awards, twenty Filmfare Awards and eight Filmfare Awards South to date.

Sreya Ghoshal is the best among the play back singers. One reason is that she almost won 4 National awards and different state awards and film fare awards within this shortest span of time.

She is versatile. Her rendition of romantic, soft numbers are flawless.

4 Lata Mangeshkar Lata Mangeshkar is an Indian playback singer and music director. She is one of the best-known and most respected playback singers in India.

It is certainly shocking to see her at number two position, which is ridiculous and unacceptable! After huge success of Aradhana songs, Kishoreda became very famous and many film stars like Rajesh Khanna,.Dev Anand insisted on his playback. During this period onwards, it was Kishoreda all the way. However, In spite of the arrival of Alka Yagnik, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Sadhana Sargam and Anuradha Paudwal, Lataji ruled the roost! Her body of work is enormous and incomparable! I sincerely think she should be at number one position, which she is notwithstanding the survey and statistics!

Lata is THE most melodious singer India has ever produced. Rafi's voice may be more smooth, BUT, Lata is more melodious than Rafi. She sang many song with Rafi Saab and she has not only matched her voice with Rafi bit by bit sur by sur chord by chord but better than Rafi. When Lata Ji sings, it looks as if Maa Saraswati is singing herself. Her voice is not from this world but from other world...One can easily meditate with her singing.

I like classical song the best. And the best example who has a strong classical base is Lata Mangeshkar. I suggest every rock and light music singers to build a good classical base at first. Lata ji's voice is really very melodious. And this is possible only because of classical songs practice.
So in my opinion Lata Mangeshkar is the best of all singers at past and today

Lata mangeshkar number 1 greatest singer... She was, she is, and she will always number 1... Nobody never take place of lata mangeshkar... she is proud of India... Lata Mangeshkar is a sign/symbol/logo of song & she will always... In all over world there are only one Lata Mangeshkar after she no one never like her...

5 Kishore Kumar Kishore Kumar was an Indian film playback singer, actor, lyricist, composer, producer, director, and screenwriter. He is considered one of the most successful playback singers of the Hindi film industry.

The golden voice of the universe, as no one stands near him, when it comes to singing for various moods and styles. He could modulate his voice according to the need of the song, ranging from baritone to low baritone and from soft to very soft and everything from whispering to humming and to whispering. He moaned, he cried, he laughed, he shouted and off course yodelled in his songs He acted while he sang and he sang while acting. The best male voice in the history of Indian cinema and overall best voice internationally along-with the great Elvis, Mohd. Rafi and Sir Cliff Richard.

Kishore the's voice was so powerful and manly, but at the same time could be soft and sentimental. He was a very versatile singer if not the not the most versatile singer in Bollywood. Some people want to believe he's not versatile because he wasn't classically trained, but they are wrong he was a god gifted singer and deserves all the praise I and hundreds of thousands others have given him. Even though he wasn't trained in classical music, he has excelled at some ghazals. He was also an all round entertainer, he wrote songs, composed, produced, directed, and also acted. I just want folks to realise music does not start or end at classical, and Kishore proved just how true this was by singing a wide variety of genres. May his music live on forever in the hearts music lovers and fans everywhere.

It shatters my heart seeing him in this position, he deserve the very first rank and yes he is the only yodelor indian cinema ever had till now

It doesn't matter what rank Kishore Kumar gets. What matters to me and million like me is we enjoy Kishore Kumar's songs more than any other singer. Its not just his voice, but his singing style, his matching his voice in accordance with actor, he being and actor, his eccentricities, his controversies, we enjoy everything.
Everything is just in his name"Kishore Kumar". For a true kishore kumar fan what matters is when we want to listen to his songs, we got a lot of variety with every kind of mood.

6 Arijit Singh Arijit Singh is an Indian playback singer and music programmer from West Bengal who sings Bengali and Hindi songs.

Arijit's voice is the most beautiful, that I have heard. I have been an ardent listener of music for 55 years, including Western genres. But when it comes to singing, in my opinion, no artist can match the colour, tone and voice control of Arijit Singh.

He is just amazing in every aspect. What a great versatile singer he is. So soothing and heart touching voice. I am glad I was born in the era where he is alive, Lots of love from me.

Really he is an outstanding singer. He has a superb voice. Not only me, my whole family is a big big fan of his sweet, melodious and heart touching voice. Nobody else can compete with his voice. We and film industry are so much lucky to have a really talented singer Arijit. Please vote him. He deserve to be in top 5 male singer in India.

He is the best singer that our industry has got in the 21st century.. Brilliant texture of his voice..

7 Hariharan Hariharan is an Indian playback singer who has sung for Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Bhojpuri, Punjabi, Gujarati and Rajasthani films, an established and foremost ghazal singer and composer, and one of the pioneers of Indian fusion music . In 2004, he was honoured with the Padma ...read more.

Great voice which is coming from Where? I can not find sice 1992 onwards.
Really God's Gift or the gift is coming out God's voice. No one can able to Immitate in any singing competetions. Amazing sound is coming from one instrument But that instrument name is... (please put a suitable name)

He should the number 1 Singer as he can sing any song with such ease when most of the singers will have to put an effort. And his voice too is very good.

He is the no. 1 versatile singer in the world. His voice is just an amazing!

He is a versatile legend. His voice is amazing!.It has a lot of perfect variations & modulations. He has been a complete singer in Multi languages by singing all kinds of genres in perfect ways. Almost all of his songs are great compositions and hits among the music lovers of those particular genres. He is a King of Ghazal, Melody, Aalaap & Sargam too. He has received almost all kinds of awards related to music.

8 Udit Narayan

Udat is very very good singer. His voice is better than kumar sanu. Very memorial voice

Udit Narayan is the best SInger in my opinion because of his originality and soothing voice! In case of Romantic songs no one can beat him! And most of all he has sung in 32 languages, no other singer has sung in 32 languages! And he can sing any type of songs!

This man has undoubtedly most fresh, young, clear and original voice. Suppose to be in top 5 along with another melody SP Bala.

Better than Kumar sanu and sonu nigam... Powerful voice... He didn't copy mohammed rafi or kishore kumar unlike Sonu nigam & Kumar sanu... Sang some of the best songs of Hindi cinemas. Starting from Qayamat se qayamat tak he has sung so many many beautiful songs which are hard to list. Some of his best hits are in DDLJ, Dil to Pagal hai, Raja Hindustani, Mohabetein, kuch kuch hota hai, Gadar, Lagaan, swades, devdas, Tere Naam, Daar, veerzara and many more...

9 Krishnakumar Kunnath

No doubt KK is a living legend. He has a very unique voice, a very soothing voice that penetrates deep inside you and leaves you mesmerized. He is the best present day singer. He is king of all scales. He takes highest of high and lowest of low notes with an incredible ease. He has the most powerful voice among all singers. The best thing about him is that he is very down to earth. He does not like free publicity.

He is a fantastic singer... Ever I have heard in life... Love his songs... Expressions... I mean he's 1 out of thw whole wonders out here! He's an amazing person, he actually makes his song so alive... That you really feel them all over... The way he expresses himself in the songs its just un believable... And the most important thing he does not show off himself... He's a silent, great, and indeed person!

If God ever sends a message to mankind, it will be in KK's voice. Trust me, this man is pure magic. A wonderful human being, down to earth, always happy and cheerful. No one can make you feel the song like he does. He is undoubtedly the best live performer India ever had. On stage he is flawless and full of energy. I respect everybody's opinions n choices here, but for me he is the best in the world by far. With respect to the list, he comes only after Rafi sab and Kishore the. They are legends who deserve their places.

He is one of the sensational singer India has ever produced... No body can sing Rock Songs like him... The range he has got, the flawless hitting of high notes, melodic expression in his singing etc. makes him the most versatile singer... & what a stage performer he is! Despite being so profile he has a huge & worthy fan following.. Kudos. I think he should be in top 5...

10 Kumar Sanu

I think before ashiqui, Indian film music was at doldrums, but the scene of the music industry changed after kumar sanu's entry, many heroes life changed, see the examples, rahul roy, aamir khan, ajay devgan, akhshay kumar, the list does not ends. No one is practical, but the truth is this and the truth is always bitter, therefore my opinion he is the number one. we still remember his songs, which penetrated into our mind since those golden days. Tell me one thing, since the time Kumar sanu is out of picture, where are those cassette companies. Nowadays we get singer free of cost, music companies cannot afford to pay the singers like kumar sanu, because of piracy. So don't go for comparison, but face the truth. Your voting is done by the present days generation, who access the internet more, so when you don't have proper voters how can you compare the singers, all are good, they have their own styles, reaching at that level and performing for years is not a joke.
Thanks

Kumar sanu is the greatest singer in the history of bollywood his voice is fantastic he sung all types of songs very easily like sad, happy, romantic songs etc. So at last I want to say that kumar sanu is best as comparision udit, sonu, and other male singers

He has a voice and matured voice quality that no one has in the Indian film industry. Even singers like Udit, Sonu Nigam don't have. It is really very sad that now a days he is not singing. In every film at least one song of his should be available. All the musician should think and implement. Who know again the melody of 90's in new version can make a realistic magic and change the era a harmonious gift.

For me kumar sanu is the best romantic voice in Indian film industry ever produce. Most of his romantic and sad songs directly hit people heart. I have no words to say about his voice quality. Form early 1990 to 2015, I am still listening his song with some enthusiasm.
Whether you sing a song or not brother for currently running music, you always being the legend for your unforgettable songs.

The Contenders
11 Zubeen Garg Zubeen Garg is an Indian singer, music director, composer, songwriter and actor. His contributions are mostly attributed in Assamese, Bengali and Bollywood. He has sung many songs in other languages including Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Odia, Bodo, Karbi, Nepali, Bishnupriya Manipuri, ...read more.

I want to correct the figure that Zubeen garg has sung more then 12000 songs till date and is going on. He sang in almost all the languages of India. He is composer, writer, singer, actor, musician. In one word he is the complete package. Its shocking to see him in this position. Really it's a meaningless ranking.. All because of ignorance attitude towards north east

I simply refuse to accept this ranking for a singer who has been active for more than 20 years now. Tell me what is lacking in him? He sings multi lingual, plays dozens of instruments, composes... Has many hits to his credit. That he has been deprived of a proper recognition is because of some stupid coterie that exists in the Industry. Zubeen Garg is at PAR with the best. And if this is again the North East phenomenon, then it's a sad case. I am from West Bengal living in Bangalore but let me tell you that there is hardly any part of the country which is as musical as the North East. I don't wish to say anything more, I just feel sad for Zubeen and all the brilliant musicians of the North East..

Zubeen Garg is amazing, the absolute genius, he is a poet, writer, composer, actor, music director and what not. And he is expert in all the musical instrument used by musician.

He is a living legend, a multitalented artist of all time. His voice is the best voice one can ever hear. Starting from composing, singing, adding music, recording to the final touch of editing he can do it all alone. Moreover he is also a very good musician and has excellency over a wide range of instruments. His singing style is unique and can nail down any kind of songs, whether it be classical, pop, rock, folk or any. In fact he is not just a singer, he is a lifestyle, a source of inspiration. He is the Best

Undoubtedly he is one of the finest singer India has ever produced with a record of 16000 songs in his name. But apart from that he is really a great human being with a golden heart! He is just an icon unparalleled

12 Atif Aslam Muhammad Atif Aslam is a Pakistani singer and film actor. His movie debut was the 2011 social drama Bol.

Atif Aslam a wonderful singer... Unique voice... Even a very poor song ll be beautiful when atif executes it... That is the quality of his voice and singing.. Really worried about why he is getting insulted by other senior singers in many stages.. And I strictly believe that best singers are chosen by the people.. None else can do that... And this poll result is an absolute reply to all those who insults Atif in many stages.. Atif is the best singer in this generation and he has his own identity, that is his unique voice.. We all with him... Love you Atif...

Tif Aslam a wonderful singer... Unique voice... Even a very poor song ll be beautiful when atif executes it... That is the quality of his voice and singing.. Really worried about why he is getting insulted by other senior singers in many stages.. And I strictly believe that best singers are chosen by the people.. None else can do that... And this poll result is an absolute reply to all those who insults Atif in many stages.. Atif is the best singer in this generation and he has his own identity, that is his unique voice.. We all with him... Love you Atif...

He should number 1 not no-2. He is the best singer in Asia. His voice is too exceptional. I like him most. (Michael Ashraful). I am the biggest fan of Atif Aslam boss! Because of best voice and singing style anyway keep this on top according to my suggestion

The most versatile singer India has ever produced, sang each song with such distinction, that left the listeners spellbound. The effortless transition across the entire range without any strand of strain, flawless emoting made him the king of playback singing... No doubt his humility, unassuming attitude, soft spoken nature, and reverence for mankind produced such a voice which came direct from heart... It's true that music is about emotion and not only technicalities, and he was master of both

He is one of the worst singer of Asia. He is singing songs without sur. Now a days both in India and Pakistan only be sura singer are giving opportunities to sing in films with most 3rd class music Director. Atif Aslam is so lucky that he is singing in this be sura era. In Pakistan only new generation like him who don't know the ABC of music. In my opinion for a true lover of Music to hear Atif Aslam song is a Big Azaab. Police in Pakistan use his songs to criminals to tell truth otherwise they will have to listen atif aslam songs.,

13 Alka Yagnik Alka Yagnik is an Indian playback singer. She is noted in Indian cinema for a career spanning over three decades.

The most beautiful voice ever in the history of music industry in the whole wide world. There is no other singer who can sing Alka Yagnik songs with same perfection and beauty of the voice to turn a simplest of lyrics into a block buster. If we talk about the best playback singer. No match to Alka Yagnik Voice forever. You can hear the mimic/copies of kavita, sadhna, anuradha and shreya which is found in every second singer means shreya has a very very common type of voice without anything particularly impressive whether edited or not. But you cannot find the mimic or a copy of Alka Yagnik's Devine Voice ever... So that's why Alka Yagnik is the all the best singer of Bollywood forever.

Alka Yagnik is the best ever voice came in bollywood. Her magical vocals can make a simple rendition to super hit song forever! Many people think Shreya is better but singers of today are not been able to reach the scale of Alka's voice. Truly speaking there are only 2 singers in bollywood who got such high scale accuracy with magical voice effect 1 is great Lata Mangashker and 2nd is Alka Yagnik! Because Alka got more beautiful voice than Lata so she should be at the number 1 Rank!

Alka Yagnik is my fast Love, my all time favorite playback singer. (1996 Present) If Lata Mangeshkar is Queen of melody then Alka Yagnik is Princess of melody. Her voice is most beautiful among all the vocals, Her voice has weight which other artificial singers like Sherya Ghoshal and others have not.

Alka has the best voice quality ever produced in Bollywood. Her range and verstality to different music compositions is unmatchable. Simply She is the queen of Sur and Sargam. Her Beautiful and sweetest Voice make common lyrics the chart busters. She has given more hitts than any other Bollywood singer. Sherya and other singers of today are no way near to the magic of ALKA YAGNIK... So Alka Ji you always rock!

14 Manna Dey

THE BEST SINGER...
He sung the most difficult songs in the history of Bollywood. He use to sing the most difficult songs very simply and easily...
His level of patience and voice is truly amazing...

He was to singing what Rahul Dravid was to cricket, technically flawless only to be outshined by an exceptional talent around the same time.

He was a simple human being who had reached the topmost level in music... just like Lord Shiva was a human being who reached the supreme position.
'Pucho na kaise Maine rain bitayi' only he could sing...
Very difficult song!
Zindagi kaisi hai paheli haye
Aaja sanam
Door hai kinara
These are just his miracles!

He can sing any song on earth. A perfectionist, he can make any song look easy. Has sang in many languages including bengali, hindi, marathi, bhojpuri, tamil, telugu, gujrati, konkani etc etc.

15 Rahat Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

I Think what rahat fateh ali khan is doing here he should be definitely in top 2 I love his songs to much, I think only atif is placed here in a good position no2 he should be number 1 also but that's okk.

Have you ever heard the song teri meri? Rahat Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is the male who sings in the song. His voice is so versatile and he has a great vocal range. His voice is so pure and perfect. I think he definitely deserves to be in the top ten.

There is a saying that before being a good artist, one has to be good human being... Rafi saab was the best example for that... He was so humble the simple human being that many times he has sung without fees... That's why god had given him great voice

Rahat fateh ali khan is the one who can sing the whole song on very high nodes like ustad nusrat fateh. He is among the top singers of the world. They both doesn't need musical instruments to filter their voice as now a day's everone required. So my openion he's on top 2.

16 Asha Bhosle Asha Bhosle, is an Indian playback singer. She is best known for her playback singing in Hindi cinema, although she has a wider repertoire.

Versatile singer.
Ability to sing any song.
Even at this age she is able to sing with such distinction.
She deserves a much better ranking than this.

My Ranking:
1. Mohd Rafi
2. Kishore Kumar
3. Asha Bhosle
4. Lata Mangeshkar
5. Udit Narayan
6. Sonu Nigam
7. Alka Yagnik
8. Shreya Ghosal
9. Mukesh
10. Atif Aslam (Has made great improvement)

I am a music academy director from India and never was impressed by anyone. Asha Bhosle is the world's best singer and whatever she sings is honest and comes from her heart.

Asha could churn out any song and transcend from very high notes to the lowest note possible in a matter of seconds. She has churned out so many hits over the decades.

Asha Bhosle is an Indian singer. She is best known as a playback singer in Hindi cinema, although she has a wider repertoire. Bhosle's career started in 1943 and has spanned over six decades

17 Bhimsen Joshi

Could there be any other name eligible to put beside his name? Most of the singers listed here is not close to him even in dreams. It's a real shame to see the tiny percentage of votes he received here. India need to wake up from deep slumber and recognize its invaluable assets in the form of music that has been gifted by GOD himself.

Pandit Bhimsen joshi from land of Karnataka ruled Hindustan and carnatic sangeetham for decades. India awarded bharatratna (gem of bharata) for his great contribution in the field of music. His name Should be in the number one place. No one can be comparable to him unless good should send in future.
Greatest singer of all time.
India salutes you.

How can you compare classical singers with playback singers. Classical singing is way more difficult. Even the great Rafi Saab used to consider himself inferior to classical singers.

The greatest singers on this planet are Bhimsen Joshi, Dr. Balamurli Krishna and M S Subbulakshmi, Kishori Amonkar. No singers in this world will come even 1% close to matching these singers.

18 Shantanu Mukherjee (Shaan)

Don't know the basis of this ranking. Its shame that a singer like shaan is 26th and singers like atif, zubeen, arijit, honey singh are all above than shaan in this list. They aren't even 1% of shaan. Shaan is the kishor Kumar of our generation. So respect him.

He's got an amazing voice, he sings really well as he's a trained singer, he never goes out of 'sur', you can find it in his live shows, people like shaan, kk, sonu, udit ji never faltered a single note while singing live that's the quality of a great singer while guys like atif aslam and mustafa zahid go completely out of 'sur' while singing live.

Shaan is the Kishore Kumar of her time but here I am disappointed to see shaan on 29 position and Arjit singh Atif Aslam all are above from shaan but in real they are not even 0.1%of shaan

He is the best singer of the world singing with his heart.
He is the only singer which can sing any type of song very good.

19 Jagjit Singh

If ever anyone wants to judge the best singer in Indian history, Jagjit Singh is the one. you need to listen all his great works, and each time you listen, his works ripens up. Trying to find another voice like his, unsuccessfull until now!

Jagjit singh is the best singer of all time. He is not singer he is god of ghajal. no one can sing like jagjit singh. I like his melodies voice. When I hear his song I feel good. He is legend then, now forever we love you jagjit singh. You will always within us

No one can take place of our gajal singer in the world he was only singer that can touch your soul and this is wrong to say that he was now he is present in our heart...

Jagjit Singh is the greatest singer of all time... Every cannot understand his songs, but every single one do like his songs... His song "wo kagaz ki kashti", "ek pyaar ka nagma the" and other Bengali songs will always touch peoples heart... He must be respected more...

20 Mohit Chauhan

Very great singer and I just want to say that he is brilliant singer and very nice voice one day he will beat sonu nigam...

Mohit chauhan is an amazing artist. His vocal cords is like a guitar & have a great knowledge about singing. Nobody else is like MOHIT CHAUHAN. He have a significant contribution in music world... Rahul Rankawat

Such a distinct voice and such great versatile singing. I just want to say that I am in love with his voice. One day he will top new singers list.

Do I need to mention any greatness for mOhit Chauhan?
His voice is magical and and has some unique charisma! He makes the song feel alive! Mohit is suoer duper best!

21 Yo Yo Honey Singh Hirdesh Singh, known by this professional name, Yo Yo Honey Singh or Honey Singh, is an Indian music producer, Indi-pop singer and film actor.

Yo Yo Honey is just amazing... He has good music sense, beautiful voice and high skill and ability.. Hia many songs such as Brown Rang and High Heels topped international charts.. His song This Party Gettin Hot was the most heard Indian Song on Youtube...

The most dumb singer in the world, he just knows only one type of song, I am sure he will be forgotten by people soon, as he is not versatile, this is not music, this is rubbish... Tell that man to do some other job

Honey singh
Lyrics - 9

22 K. J. Yesudas Born 10 January 1940, at Fort Kohi ...read more.

Legend. Only went through his hindi songs and can't even imagine what treasure lies ahead in south indian languages. Sad that he didn't get enough songs in hindi due to politics in the industry.

The singer with the most number of National Awards in India is one and only K. J. Yesudas with seven wins for three different languages (Malayalam, Telugu & Hindi).He has recorded more than 40,000 songs in a number of Indian languages as well as Malay, Russian, Arabic, Latin and English during a career spanning more than five decades. Yesudas has won Filmfare Award for the Best Playback Singer 5 times, and the State Award for the Best Playback Singer 43 times, which consists of awards by the state governments of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and West Bengal. But the North Indian lobby always not accepting South Indian Talents.

When yesudas sings, you will be moved to a new world where you will totally forget your sorrows, worries and you will be full filled with rejoice... Yes he is a magician of music... Or in brief way, God is singing thru Yesudas voice. And I just felt if Yesudas sings in all countries, the world will change into a peaceful one than what we could imagine... Believe me I always think if Yesudas can sing all melodious songs in the world, then it will be great... I am not getting any more words to express than this way... Thanks

Hey guys, I found some comments like 'good looking' as one of the qualities of the singers. That's really rubbish. I think most of the voters in this page haven't really listened to all of these singers. In my opinion no one can be placed before Yesudas in Indian playback singing. Because he is really a versatile singer than Rafi & Mukesh. I don't know what do people find as versatile in Mukesh's & Rafi's singing.

He is only one singer in the world who can sing any kind of songs in a great soul. Un-comparable. He is just only one singer and no body is as equal to him. Specially his voice can mold in any pitch and words pronunciation is very well. All in one. Different style of singing. Most genius, because he will sing according to the situation of the story with great feeling. He will sing the songs by understanding of the writer version and their thought. While singing all these aspects will be in his songs. That's why he different from other singers. No body can sing a song mixing all these qualities while singing. He is only one the best singer in the world. While singing, the situation or scene of the cinema, we can imagine with his singing without seeing the film. In some times, the actors may also do proper justice in their action in the songs by under standing the writers feelings and singer's feelings.

I don't who has done this listing.. He is stupid. SPB is in 14th position? Do you know SPB has sung more than 33000 songs which is the official record. He is still sings at least 2 songs on average every day and getting recorded. He is number 1 singer in the world who has sung (recorded songs only) which are more than 33000 songs. Don't misguide the people like this. You mean to say there no singer in south India who doesn't deserve position 1 or 2 or 3 bla bla.. Check it in the Google, Guinness book of world record before you publish such list.

In forest no one can compare the king lion with any other animal, because king is always king. Like wise we cannot compare him with others. He is a Legend. He is my hero. SPB sir is in 15? He voice is like honey. If any one wanted to commit suicide if they listen his songs they will change their mind. After listening his songs you cannot remember your pain, your loss and your sadness. You will just enjoy his voice. That is the power of SPB sir. I am very proud because he is from our country. I love your songs spb sir.
