Voices always have greater means of influence over one’s spirits. Especially the sweet voices keep us mesmerized for ages. The man of magic has been keeping us under his spell over generations and he is KJ Yesudas. His songs have been lullabies not for the babies alone, but for everyone.

K J Yesudas was born in Fort Kochi, Kerala, to Augustine Joseph and Alicekutty. His father, who was a well-known Malayalam classical musician and stage actor, was his first guru. Later he joined the Music Academy in Thrippunithura and underwent training. For a brief period, he was with Sri Vechur Hari Hara Subramania Iyer after which he took advanced training from Chembai Vaidyanatha Bhagavatar, a maestro of Classical Music. Although he is a Carnatic Music expert he mastered Hindustani Music. He has taken the words of Sree Narayana Guru, "One Religion, One Caste for all humans" to heart.

His widest range of accomplishments into various genres of music makes him the most adorable inspiration for the young-gen of aspiring singers.

We as the members of Top 10 Cinema convey our birthday wishes to the living legend.
