"His devotional songs are emotional, touch one`s heart, ever reverberate in one`s ears and take one nearer to divinity," he said, adding, he left an "indellible ink" mark in South Indian music world.

His death was an "irreparable loss" to Tamil cinema and to Tamil music world in particular, he said while conveying his condolences to the bereaved family members and his fans.

DMK chief M Karunanidhi also paid rich tributes to Soundararajan, recalling his friendship with the singer.
"The voice of no other singer suited the poles of Tamil cinema- M G Ramachandran and Sivaji Ganesan-like that of Soundararajan," he said adding his government had in 1974 conferred the `Kalaimamani` Award on him.

He expressed grief over Soundararajan`s death.
