Padma Vibhushan is another stepping stone for KJ Yesudas

Veteran playback singer and Carnatic vocalist K J Yesudas has expressed his happiness at being chosen for Padma Voisbhushan, the second highest civilian honor in the country.

Yesudas, who won the Padma Shri in 1975 and Padma Bhushan in 2002, said the award is a recognition of struggles he went through as a newcomer. 'It is humbling, yes.

It is also a stepping stone,' he said. Yesudas, who started his singing career in 1961 has recorded over 50,000 songs in various languages.

Meanwhile, legendary playback singer S P Balasubramaniam has heaped laurels on Yesudas for being selected for the great honour.

'My anna (brother), Yesudas is conferred with Padma Vibhushan. Proud of you my dear brother. The entire country should feel proud of my brother,' he posted on his Facebook page.
