Poraale.. A tribute to Swarnalatha

Swarnalatha, a singer par excellence passed away a couple of days ago at the age of 37. Blessed with a very unique tone, abundant versatility and a rich voice, she will be sorely missed in the years to come….

This is my attempt at one song of hers which was tough breathwise, lyrics/emoting wise owing to what the song means… It bagged her the National Award for the Best Female Playback Singer. I have tried to make a k-track myself since the ones I found were quite pathetic. Hopefully it doesn’t sound too bad!
