When news of singer KK’s demise broke on May 31, the music business was in disbelief. Although he had a lot of successful singles, “Yaaron” is perhaps the one that people remember the most. KK’s children Taamara and Nakul, together with other musicians from the Indian music business, have now reproduced the song as a musical homage.
The youthful vocalists created the soulful tribute music alongside Shaan, Papon, Benny Dayal, Dhvani Bhanushali, and Leslie Lewis as Friendship Day draws near.
Taamara posted the song on Instagram. She wrote in her caption, “Check it out guys! ‘Yaaron’ Forever! This was very special and close to my heart! and I think it was one of the first times me and @nakul.krishna.music have sung together, wish dad was there singing with us. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as we enjoyed recording it along with these amazing artists! We got to record dads song at Purple Haze studios, the same studio he recorded this song, around 24 years ago, and it was a very special time! Love you forever dad.”
The song’s music video opens with KK singing the song live on stage, then immediately transitions to the vocalists rehearsing the song in a studio.
In Kolkata, KK was performing when he began to feel uneasy. After being taken to the hospital, he suffered a heart collapse and died there. The news was confirmed by a senior police official, who stated, “The original assessment revealed that the singer died as a result of myocardial infarction. His death was not the result of any wrongdoing. Additionally, a clinical check told that the singer had ongoing heart problems.
Along with Yaaron, KK is famous for several more well-known songs, including Aankhon Mein Teri, Khuda Jaane, Beete Lamhe, Tadap Tadap, and Sach Keh Raha.
