"Lo un baahon ko, thandhi chhaon ko, Hum bhi kar chale Alvida," 

Krishnakumar Kunnath, better known as KK, passed away on May 31 at 53.

His followers will remember him for his solid yet mellifluous voice for many decades to come.

The multifaceted singer was a vital part of most '90s kids' lives, as his music helped many of them get through various aspects of life.

KK was equally talented in all genres of singing, whether it was heartbreak or simple daily hustles.

His melodic voice and passion for love songs struck a chord with people, propelling him to prominence among Bollywood's brilliant vocalists.

Despite being Malayali by birth, KK has never received any music training.

KK never shied away from singing in unfamiliar languages, such as Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada.

KK was born in New Delhi to C S Menon and Kunnath Kanakavalli On August 23, 1968. He attended Mount St Mary's School in New Delhi.

KK reportedly worked as a marketing associate in the hotel industry before moving to Mumbai to seek a career in music.

He was greatly influenced by singer Kishore Kumar and music director R.D. Burman.

He made his Bollywood playback singing debut in 1999 with 'Tadap Tadap' from 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.'

Every '90s kid remembers KK for the album's title tune, 'Pal,' and 'Yaaron,' which provided most school kids with friendship dreams.
