It sounds phenomenal achievement for any singer but K.S

has undergone under the guidance of Dr Omnakutty, Professor of Music College,
Thiruvananthapuram which has made her one of the best female playback singers

has sung some wonderfully melodious songs mostly with classical overtures in
Tamil Films and it is astounding that the Meastro Illayaraja and Rahman have

have got the best singing virtues out of her than the Maestro. Some of her gems
for the Maestro are as follows.
