Source : The Hindu, By MALATHI RANGARAJAN, Jan 13, 2006 The rare combination of SPB and Usha Uthup had the large audience at Nehru Indoor Stadium swaying on their feet.

On the face of it, they are an incongruous duo. S. P.Balasubrahmanyam, playback singer of 40 years standing in films, and Usha Uthup, who stormed the stage with every kind of light music from pop to cinema more than two decades ago and still rules the proscenium, came together for a light music bonanza with Lakshman Sruthi's orchestral support on Sunday at the Nehru Indoor Stadium.

Lakshman Sruthi's cent per cent live orchestra rose to the occasion wonderfully. The initial warming up session had about half a dozen songs by the troupe's singers, including the up and coming Malathi. The other singers were not introduced very clearly, probably because it was an SPB-UU show. But all of them performed well. Rightly, a thoughtful Usha wanted the gathering to put their hands together for Lakshman Sruthi's orchestra and singers.

Source : By A.R.S., The Hindu, Feb 03, 2006 S.P Balasubrahmanyam was recently felicitated by the Visakha Music Academy.

Visakha Music Academy, which began in 1969, organised a felicitation ceremony in honour of the legendary cine playback singer S.P. Balasubrahmanyam who is also popularly known as Balu. The academy has been organising classical music concerts for a while besides felicitating eminent exponents of Carnatic and Hindustani music..

Balasubrahmanyam has recorded about 36,000 songs for films and in as many as nine languages including Hindi. An insurmountable record indeed for the highest number of songs recorded (averaging a little over three songs a day). During his long innings of 39 years, Balu has sung for ventures across the country spanning south and north India. Besides singing, he has acted and composed music for projects outside the cine world as well.
