G. V. Prakash Kumar (born 13 June 1987) is an Indian film score and soundtrack composer and singer. He has mainly scored music for Tamil, while also doing three Telugu films and a Hindi film.

He first appeared as a vocalist on the soundtrack of director S. Shankar's Tamil film Gentleman, composed by his maternal uncle, A. R. Rahman. He has also contributed to some of Rahman's other projects. He had also worked with Harris Jayaraj and sang two songs in Anniyan and Unnale Unnale.

G. V. Prakash, aged 17, was first signed up to compose the music for Taxi Driver, a film directed by debutant Morgan featuring Prashanth in early 2005. However, the film eventually failed to take off and Prakash returned to his vocalist and technician roles. Prakash's introduction as a film composer was in the critically acclaimed Tamil film Veyil, directed by Vasantha Balan and produced by the director S. Shankar. His music in the film Madrasapattinam directed by A.L.Vijay was appreciated mainly for his song "Pookal Pookum Tharunam".

Prakash Kumar is the son of Venkatesh and playback singer, A. R. Reihana, who is the elder sister to music director A. R. Rahman. Prakash is engaged to singer, Saindhavi. They studied together in Chettinad Vidyashram. They have planned to get married in January 2013.
