CHENNAI: Renowned playback singer S P Balasubramanyam, popularly called as SPB, Sunday vowed that he would never render any song of Tamil music director Ilayaraja in future after the latter shot off a legal notice to his longtime friend for singing his compositions at a concert in US without his consent.

''In any stage in future, I will never render any of his songs'', SPB tweeted, responding to the legal notice from Ilayaraja. SPB had recently rendered some of the hit songs that he sang for Ilayaraja, at a concert in Los Angeles and for which, the latter has sent a legal notice to the organisers and the singer.

In the legal notice, the music composer said they did not get any prior permission from him for rendering his songs and have to pay a heavy penalty for their act. In his Facebook post, SPB wrote, 'I was surprised when I got a legal notice from Ilayaraja for the concert we performed in USA''. ''My son S P Charan organised a series of music shows across the world to celebrate my 50 years in cinema and we have been performing at Singapore, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, and USA'', SPB said. ''I wonder why problems arise only when we stage a show in USA'. 'I have no big knowledge about rules and laws'', he said. ''But after the notice was served on us, we have collectively decided not to sing his songs anymore on stage. I have sung for many other composers, which I will be performing on stage'', SPB said. He also appealed to all music-lovers not to make an issue out of this. It may be recalled that both SPB and Ilayaraja share a great rapport for over four decades and he has sung thousands of songs set to tunes by Ilayaraja since early 1980s. The duo have combined well to produce hundreds of hit songs which still captivates the audience.
