His emotional and youthful voice touched the hearts of many, especially the lovers in all walks of life. He was an incarnation of a Saint who descended upon our island to sooth the emotions of people who seek the true meaning of love. Milton Mallawarachchi thus boldly took us all on an exploration of ’True Love’...to an extent where no other local singer has taken us before or after.
The song Ran Kooduwa oba Sadoo... Milton sang for his very first LP record depicts the voice of a disheartened young lover who had been deserted by his girlfriend. One would end up in tears if he or she listens to this song in a fitting context. This was the ’Magic’ in Milton Mallawarachchi’s voice. Milton gifted his fans an array of similar songs such as Sithum Pathum podi Adarae, Sanda uthura Gangawe, Pem Rajadahane(with Rukmani Devi), Upul Nuwan Vidaha , Ae.. nowe.. Ma soya..Peminiye.. Kisidine.., over a career span of three decades. He was the guardian angel of young lovers to whom he offered a shoulder to weep on when they are in dismay.
