Full Biography of Singer Karthik

Karthik born 7 November 1980 is an Indian playback singer. Karthik started his professional career as a backing vocalist and has since been working as a playback singer. He has sung in multiple languages including Malayalam, Tamil, Kannada, Telugu , Bengali and Hindi among others. Karthik is known for his versatility in the industry which gave him opportunity to sing a variety of songs.Karthik developed an interest in music, early in his life.

 He is a trained Carnatic music vocalist and has been training since his school days. He was part of a college band and regularly participated in IIT Madras Fest Saarang. An ardent fan of A. R. Rahman, Karthik\'s dream was to meet Rahman and sing for him. Playback singer Srinivas, who collaborated often with Rahman was Karthik\'s close friend\'s cousin. Srinivas encouraged Karthik to look at singing as a career, which prompted Karthik to resume his singing lessons. One year later, Srinivas recommended Karthik\'s name to Rahman, who needed fresh voices for backing vocalists for a song from Pukar. Karthik eventually got the opportunity and recorded for the song. Having spent over a year being a backing vocalist, Karthik got his break during the re-recording of One 2 Ka 4. For the background score, A. R. Rahman wanted a high-pitched alap and he eventually chose Karthik to sing the alap. Soon after, Rahman asked him to sing the song \"Nendhukittaen\" from the film Star.

Karthik has sung a number of songs for many popular music directors, including A. R. Rahman, Ilaiyaraaja, Hamsalekha, Vidyasagar, Yuvan Shankar Raja, Harris Jeyaraj and Manisharma.
