It's been a year since we lost the legendary singer S P Balasubrahmanyam. The singer died on September 25, 2020, after being infected with COVID-19. In a career spanning over five decades, S P Balasubrahmanyam gave his voice to more than 40,000 songs in as many as 16 languages, including Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi. We just can't forget his dreamy cadence in A R Rahman's compositions in Roja as well as his lively voice in songs like O Maria O Maria. On his first death anniversary, let us take a look at some of SPB's unforgettable songs.

Here is the list of SPB's evergreen songs in Bollywood:
