S P Balasubrahmanyam,” the legendary playback singer, actor cum voice-over artist, lost his mother Sakunthalamma today. She passed away in Nellore due to some age-related health issues. Sakunthalamma had been living in their ancestral property. Sakunthalamma is survived with eight children; 3 sons and five daughters. Among them, SPB and “S P Sailaja” are the famous singers. SPB had sung in almost all the popular Indian languages. SPB’s dad was a Harikatha artist. It was Sakunthalamma, who encouraged her son to come up in his career. May her soul rest in peace! Our deepest condolences to SP Balu and SP Sailaja and family!
