Swarnalatha (1973 - 2010) was a South Indian film playback singer. She had been singing since 1989 with many music directors. She had rendered songs in Tamil, Kannada, Telugu, Hindi, Malayalam, Urdu, Badaga.

She had won the National Film Award for Best Female Playback Singer for her rendition of the famous song "Porale Ponnuthayi" from the film Karuththamma. The song was composed by A. R. Rahman, with whom she had given lot of memorable songs.

She was born in Athikkodu near Chittur, Palakkad, Kerala, to K. C. Cherukutty and Kalyani. Her father was a good harmonium player and singer. Her mother also had interest in music. Swarnalatha was trained in harmonium and keyboard. Swarnalatha's family later moved to Shimoga, where she had her education.

In 1987, she shifted to Chennai, where she met M. S. Viswanathan, which was a break in her career. She was introduced to film industry by M.S.V. through a duet with K. J. Yesudas, "Chinnanchirukiliye Kannamma" from the film Neethikku Dhandanai. She was well promoted by Ilaiyaraaja and later by A. R. Rahman. Most of her memorable songs were with these composers. She had also recorded a few Hindi songs, the most notable one being "Hai Rama Yeh Kya Hua" from Rangeela.

She was one of the most versatile singers of her times, as she was able to sing melodies like "Maalayil Yaaro Manathodu Pesa" from Chatriyan or "Porale Ponnuthayi" from Karuthamma as well as Rahman's experimental songs like "Mukkabla" from Kadhalan or "Mottu Vittadha" from Pavithra.

Swarnalatha passed away at a private hospital in Chennai at the age of 37, after being admitted because she had difficulty in breathing. The singer had been undergoing treatment for lung infection for over a year and did not record for films during the period.
