Kannan Thirudiya - Tamil Devotional Cover

Lyrics & Chords

Hi Friends…

At last… At last… At last… My much awaited mic is here!! As a tradition and being a firm believer in god, I felt it is best to start with a devotional song…

This is one of my favs from the Tamil Devotional Album “Murali Gaanam”… I had previously uploaded another song from this same album ( Velli Nilaa )… This entire album has been so close to my heart for the soulful songs in it…

Here is my earnest effort in singing this one… I had to work on this for multiple days, as I had to record this song “n” number of times, to complete it at one stretch… This I felt was the output that sounded just about alright to me… Hope you all like this song…

A special note of thanks to our bro Vishnu for helping me with this vocal cut track…. He has done his very best to reduce the vocals on the original track… Without you this song would never have been possible da! Thank you so very much!

Song: Kannan Thirudiya
Album: Murali Gaanam
Music: Easwar
Lyrics: Easwar
Original Singer: Dr. KJY
K-Track: Vishnu
Covered by: Sushanth

PS: This song was introduced to me by a very good friend of mine. Hence, I am not sure if all the credits given above are correct. Kindly help me correct it if any of you know the details.

Thank you for listening guys! Please leave your valuable thoughts on this one…

Very good singing Sushanth. Have not heard the original, but thought you did a good job with it. Some spots pitching could be better. Voice sounds a lot clearer with the new mic.

Sushanth – congrats on the new mic. Havent heard the song before, so cant comment on the nuances. Singing was good, the clarity of the vocals also is good. The higher notes could be a little better, i thought – but was overall nicely done,
