I’ve discovered Vitas just about 3 month ago, but I can’t help to listening him over and over again, so I want to share with you he’s beautiful voice.
Vitas (Vitaliy Vladasovich Grachov) was born on 19 February 1981 in Latvia. He is a Russian pop singer, composer, actor, and fashion designer. He entered the Guiness Book of World Records because he has a vocal range that spans five octaves.
Vitas first appeared in Russia in December 2000 with his hit Opera #2, which was notable for use of he’ surprisingly high-pitched and energetic countertenor voice.
The sounds from Vitas’ recordings exhibit an unusually high vocal register, and his performances are remarkably consistent, therefore it is sometimes suggested that his recordings are altered and that his live performances are lip synched. These speculations briefly gained media attention in Russia. Vitas and his producer have both denied the rumors. Fans who attend his concerts assert that Vitas sings live. He often swings his microphone away from his mouth to prove it. Fans sitting in the front rows, and beyond, state that they clearly hear his unamplified voice. – Wikipedia
Some of my favorite songs are:
Lucia Di Lammermoorr
Krikom – Crane’s crying
Mama – this song is to commemorate his mother, who passed away a few years ago
Vitas presented his collection of the clothes “Autumn Dreams” on the stage of the State Kremlin Palace in September 29, 2002. The show is below, unfortunately, the video image is very poor.
Here is he’s official site, where you can find out more about Vitas.
Я люблю тебя Витас и благодарю за существование!
