VITAS – My truth. Seventh Element / English subtitles / 5-TV November 17, 2019


Moscow airport in Sheremetyevo. A tall man in a cap and dark glasses passes
unnoticed through a crowd of passengers. He’s going to the check-in desk,
holds out a passport. The airport staff will recognize Vitas
in it right away singer who 20 years ago
made a lot of noise with his “Opera #2” and this opera even reached China. They call him a national hero there. A few years ago Vitas made a real cultural
revolution in the Celestial Empire by conquering this country with the same song. Vitas: We arrived in China for the first time in 2006, I sang the song “Opera #2” and after this song some kind of crazy excitement began. The singer became famous at the age of 20. Vitas earned huge fees, bought a luxurious mansion on Rublevka, acquired a chic house in a suburb of Shanghai. In his garage is an SUV worth
about 7 million rubles. It is to him that the monuments
in China stand. It is in his honor that more than 500 wax
figures have already been opened. Denis Maidanov: Conquering 1.5 billion
Chinese is a very big deal. It must be something unique. So who is Vitas really? How could a ordinary guy from Odessa burst
in show business and become a world star? Is it true that he stole his beloved from home
when she was only 15 years old? And what were the mystical signs that
haunted him after his mother died? My name is Vitas and it’s “My Truth.” Look right now. Why are performances in China
dangerous to Vitas’ life? We leave the concert halls through
the ventilation ducts, through the sewers. What’s the reason for his phenomenal
success in Asia? When fans hear Vitas, they think his voice
is the kiss of an angel. How did Vitas come up with “Opera #2”? Dad came out of the next room and said:
I’ll call the police now. Why did the singer take his beloved away
secretly from her parents? Svetlana: I realize now that it was not good
in relation to my parents. How much did the artist insure his voice? It was a complicated process. And what happened on the day
of his mother’s death? I began to believe in
an isoteric connection. Right now we are starting from
this room at Miss World 2019. After many hours of flight from Moscow to China
Vitas hardly had any rest. But despite his fatigue, Vitas is ready
to surprise the Celestial Empire again. This time it will be a huge stadium
filled with spectators. It is possible that most will come to look
not at all at beauties but on their idol from Russia. In the meantime, he takes a comfortable
minivan and goes to the site. The singer is accompanied all the way
by special forces. The Chinese take care of Vitas
as the first person of the state. Here about 2.5 thousand Special Forces
necessarily guard my solo concerts. Because everyone wants to tear away from Vitas
some kind of rhinestone, a button for memory. I understand this love, but it can be
a really dangerous story. Crazed with love, fans are ready to tear
Vitas up at every performance. They watch out the singer everywhere,
blocking the exits. The artist often looks for ways
to save himself. We leave the concert halls through
the ventilation ducts, through the sewers. So that fans of my work will not see
in which car and when Vitas will sit down. So this time, as soon as Vitas gets out
of the car, fans surround him. Forgetting the contest, beauties surround
the singer to take a selfie for memory. Security comes in. Vitas is pulled out of the hands
of the girls and escorted to the makeup room There he will be able to calmly
prepare for the performance. And thousands of spectators at the stadium
count the minutes until the artist appears on stage. Denis Maidanov: Now it’s already a cult singer.
In China he performs at the main concerts of the country. At the 70th anniversary
of the People’s Republic of China, at the main presidential concert that
has high ratings and everyone is watching, and Vitas has to be at that concert
and he sang there to the loud applause of the president
and his entourage. Svetlana: When I saw it myself, I was shocked thathe is loved there much more
than in homeland. He’s like Michael Jackson in there,
there is just delight. Only one Vitas performance in China can
gather up to 200 thousand spectators. His fan club in the republic has
over a million fans. They even dedicate sculptures
to the Russian pop idol. Here’s one of them.
Naked artist playing the accordion and apparently performs his famous song. You can see the gills on his neck. And the Chinese consider
the voice of Vitas healing. They even come to concerts with bottles of water
so that it is charged with energy from his singing. Soso Pavliashvili: In China they love mysticism,
in China they love the mythical and they can feel more than we do. and they felt kind of light in him, they felt purity in him
and kind of prince When fans hear Vitas, they think his voice
is the kiss of an angel. The singer is not only a welcome guest on Chinese
television, but also a star of local cinema. Congratulations! Vitas: Thank you. You are great! In 2009, he starred in the historical action movie “Mulan” Shooting in this movie wasn’t the easiest. We fell into a sandstorm and it really
is a very scary story. When the entire pavilion that was made
in the desert was demolished. I was struck by the efficiency and
discipline of the Chinese when they restored the entire pavilion in
exactly two and a half hours. Can you imagine this?
It was amazing. The artist played in a movie
wandering musician Wude who is being held hostage
by a warring tribe. My lord, I have cleaned your crown. Wude, you stay and serve me. After the success of “Mulan” proposals from
Chinese filmmakers sprinkled on the singer. Sergei Pudovkin: There is a film “The Founding of a Party”
(in English “Beginning of the Great Revival”). This is a film about the construction of the Communist
Party in the People’s Republic of China. where Vitas was entrusted to play the role
of the Russian patriot communist who helped in this case
during the civil war. Great, you can apply. “Become a star” is a movie about Vitas,
in this movie Vitas plays himself. Such a star who comes to China and
step by step achieves absolute success turns the buses over. Denis Tolpeko: For China, I think it is very
charismatic and he has his chip is his cap. And of course it’s his voice,
which knocks down, charges water and has a positive impact on many people. What’s the secret to Vitas’ Chinese miracle? How did he manage to conquer
he music market in Celestial? Vitas or as his name really is Vitaly Grachev was born and grew up on Moldavanka,
a legendary and criminal district of Odessa. I was a very unconventional resident of Moldavanka
because the district is not very creative, there’s a lot of nationalities and
rich color of this district. I want to tell you that I’ve chosen a path
called “Creativity” since I was a kid. When I was 8, I did my first parody
of Michael Jackson at the club. When I was 8 years old,
I started making money And during all my life in this district, I was dancing,
doing creative work and being such a white crow. Vitaly’s mother Lilya was
a fashion designer by profession. She tried him to look always super.
She picked up clothes and shoes for him. And he looked really like white crow. Michael Jackson was a young man’s idol. Expensive clips of the American artist
mentally carried Vitas to another world where there were no problems
and where he felt organically. Because he also wanted to sing and dance
and to be famous all over the world. Vitaliy tried to copy Jackson’s style in his clothes. The kids were laughing at the guy who
was walking the streets in extravagant suits. Teachers were kicking him out of school. I was kicked out of school several times for coming
to the classroom in a Michael Jackson costume. Imagine, a person comes
in a suit of Michael Jackson: in short pants and white socks
and in a hat for a math lesson. From childhood, he felt like a white crow his perception of the world was so different from
what was expected of him by others. For the boy, the way out of this
situation was through music. When he was 11 or 12 years old,
I can’t be more precisely and his voice hasn’t broken yet he could have
copied Whitney Houston one to one. The first person to pay attention
to Vitaly’s abilities was grandfather Arkady Davydovich. Grandpa gave me my first musical instrument, he put a drum, a car and
an accordion on the floor. I took the accordion and exactly two days later I began
to pick up some kind of music began to improvise. And then mom called grandfather
told him about it Grandfather said: Urgently give it
to a music school. The Grachev family lived modestly,
there was no money for the car, So Vitaly had to carry a bulky
accordion to school himself. Sometimes after work, his mother took him.
The boy waited her for hours in the cold. He still recalls his mother.
She was the closest person to him. Daddy had to make money,
so I paid him a lot less attention. In general, my mother was my first teacher. I remember when I did the first parody
of Michael Jackson, it was a small room in Moldavanka. There was a closet, a “Mayak” tape recorder. Mom took a chair, sat across from me
and watched my performance for the first time a parody of Michael Jackson. And I will never forget what she said:
Son you do it flawlessly. You do it very well,
you are very talented. And I want to tell you that my mother
supported me in everything and this is very important for the child
when the parents support him. Lilia Mikhailovna always
believed in her son and knew that he would ever
become famous. She sewed him bright costumes
for the first performances. And this passion for unusual costumes
will remain with him for a long time. Vitas went down in the history
of the Russian music as one of the most shocking artists. But he is unlikely to have moved
further than Odessa restaurants, if not for a meeting with
producer Sergei Pudovkin. See further: Who put Vitas up in Moscow? It was a bald, skinny, weird character. How did “Opera #2” come about? Dad came out of the next room
and said: I’ll call the police now. Why did Vitas steal his lover
from her parents? Sveta looked into my eyes and said:
My God, Vitalechka, what am I doing? And how much did the artist
insure his voice? It was a complicated process… Why do I need makeup?
I’m already beautiful. This is the dressing room
of the theater of the Russian Army. There is very little time before going on stage. Vitas tries not to forget his native audience despite the fact that concerts in China
bring much more money. But today, the artist feels bad.
His temperature has gone up. Performance may not take place. I believe that the temperature of the artist should be
a few degrees higher than that of the audience. Only in this way can one
engage in real creativity. That’s how with almost no strength
Vitas comes out to the audience, to cancel concerts is not in the rules
of the artist. He hasn’t disrupted a single
performance during his career. This unusual and strong voice cannot be
confused with anyone else. So Pudovkin remembers the day
he first heard it. Voice, appearance and ability to contact the public
despite his age, he was about 17 years old. And there was the brightest reaction of the audience
when they shouted “bravo”, applauded. It was in Odessa in the late 90s. Pudovkin was the director
the “Na-Na” Group at the time came there on business
and went to a nightclub There he saw a young man
on the stage named Vitas. It was an amazing, unusual, bald, skinny,
weird character with informal songs and lyrics. Sergey immediately proposed
to sign a contract. Then they went to Moscow where they started
looking for investors to promote the singer. Vitas remembers well his meeting with the head
of a major TV channel. I went into his office and he said: What is your task?
What do you want from life? You sing well, you look good. I’m sure you have prospects.
What is your purpose? I said: I want to make a million dollars. That’s the task I had. I’ve been told for a long time
it doesn’t look like anything. You can’t put it on a radio station. All the songs have to be similar there
but this isn’t the format. I think: Yes! Thank God! It’s good, it’s right, it’s important that
it doesn’t look like anything, that it’s bright. And yet there were people who were willing to
invest in the promotion of the singer. Celebrating the deal went to a Japanese restaurant. They gave me chopsticks, and I understand there’s
a management sitting at the table, but I think how to eat with these chopsticks,
and eat with my hands not very convenient and I said: You know, I don’t want to eat, I’m full.
May I take this with me? The first song that should make Vitas knownto the whole
country, Pudovkin decided to do “Opera #2.” He heard it back then in a club in Odessa
and was sure that it was a 100% hit. Vitaly wrote it at the age of 14. At 3 a.m., I just decided to write a song. Dad and mom were sleeping.
I took Ionica that my dad gave me, a book that my mother bought for me
at Privoz, this is at Moldavanka, I played a melody on my poems and
made a verse in exactly 4 minutes I just played: Tu-ta-tu-ta-tu …
Well, “Opera # 2”. Absolutely primitive story. But I realized that the chorus
should be original. And then I found this high note and
took it at 3 a.m. Dad came out of the next room and said: Son,
if you don’t stop squealing, I’ll call the police. Our neighbors in Moldavanka don’t like that and they told me what kind of moron
you have who sings at this hour? I said: Dad, you don’t understand anything! This song will become famous
all over the world! The guy was not mistaken in a few years this song
will win the hearts of listeners in China, Brazil, USA. But it will be later. But first, Pudovkin
was looking for a talented director. Who could make a suitable clip
for such an unusual song. One of the most popular music video makers
in the country was Yuri Grymov. I remember that on the set I had to undress and plunge into 14°water and sing
something under water there. We shot it in Moscow for 3-4 days
and it was fun. It was good, creative and it was clear
that it was a success. Soso Pavliashvili: It was not a man,
but a bare nerve … with gills … and it was so creative and interestingly invented
and something magical was in this image. It was in this video that Vitas first
appeared with gills on his neck. And since then, many believed that
the singer was almost an alien. And the producer further fueled interest in the artist creating an atmosphere of mysticism
and mystery around him. Sergey Zhorin: One lady called me and said:
Sergey, now you are working with Vitas, tell me, can he breathe under water? I say: What do you mean?
Lady: He has gills! I suddenly realized that
most of our population and many intellectual people sincerely
believe that Vitas has gills. Alexey Ostudin: At the beginning of his career,
when he had a sharp take-off, he didn’t communicate with anyone at first,
he always went with security, didn’t give interviews and nobody knew
whether he was talking or not. I went outside after the concert.
There were two girls standing there. I was wearing a cap and glasses
and they didn’t recognize me. One says to the other: Do you know why
Vitas is wet after every song? Another says: No, I don’t know. She says: I will tell you. He has a bathtub
behind the scenes and after he sings a song, he put his head in the bathtub
behind the scenes, breathes his gills in water
and goes back on stage. Our public does not believe
in this for a long time already, but the world public believes in it actively And they still write messages,
when they organize a concert on tour that they want to provide
a seawater bathtub. I’m not joking. However, the singer has some
fantastic abilities. Vitas assures that he can slow his pulse
with the power of his mind. When I was 18 and I was lying on the bed,
my hands were there and realized that I can speed up
and slow down my pulse. But in public, Vitas never showed
tricks with his pulse. He won everyone over
with his unique voice. But Vitas claims to be doing live
performance at concerts. In 2001, he even insured
his voice for $2.5 million. Really, my voice was insured
and it was a complicated process. It was a big work. The producer made the image of Vitas
as a lonely and withdrawn artist. like he came from another planet. But in fact, his girlfriend was
always next to him The singer says their love story is
like a real blockbuster. It’s like an episode with Bonnie and Clyde,
like a story for a Hollywood movie. Before meeting with Pudovkin, Vitas performed
at various competitions in Odessa. He accidentally saw Svetlana in the crowd
and realized that she was the only one. There were two girls behind the scenes,
she and her sister Natalia. I went backstage and went to her from behind
and whispered to her: Sweet. Then I hugged her and said:
Come with me, now I’m not letting you go anywhere. I felt someone come up behind me
and his breath in the back. I turned around and saw Vitalik.
That’s how we met. I was very pleased. Vitas was 20 years old,
and his girlfriend was only 15. Meetings with him were not like courtship
other guys from Moldavanka. He even made an ordinary date creatively It was winter and very cold.
Vitalik comes to my house and says: Sveta come out,
summer has come! I went out and saw that he had covered
the whole staircase with sand, set up a palm tree, a deck chair. Of course I was shocked.
It was very amazing. When the producer suggested signing a contract
and moving to Moscow the singer realized that without his beloved
he wouldn’t go anywhere. I loved her so much that
I wanted to take her with me. Everything is simple, banal and primitive. And she loved me so much that
she was willing to take that step. Svetlana was a minor and her parents would
never have let her go to another city Then the lovers decided
to just run away. I realize now that it wasn’t good for my parents,
but I didn’t think about it at the time. The young man has prepared to escape.
That day, he cut the telephone wires at home so Svetlana’s mother wouldn’t get through
to Vitaly’s mother who knew that her son was going for Moscow. The lovers met at an agreed place, then they called a taxi, reached the station and boarded the train. When the train moved,
Sveta looked me in the eyes and said: My God, Vitalichka,
what am I doing? I said: Relax. It’s okay. Happy they completely forgot that they
will have to cross the Ukrainian-Russian border and Svetlana did not have any documents. She hasn’t had a passport yet. But I got lucky. I lay on the train next
to mother with two children. They were about the same age as me. Of course, we were very afraid
when we were at customs. Vitalik stood there looking at me
and we were very worried. When customs officers began to check the documents
the woman gave them a whole stack of documents. And they thought Svetlana was
one of the daughters of the woman and did not require a passport So lucky lovers reached Moscow. And so the two of us
ended up in Moscow. We had a lot of difficulties. We lived in rented apartments
and had absolutely no money. We walked next McDonald’s
and licked our lips. We ate canned sprat in tomato,
ate buckwheat porridge. And the holiday for us was when
we had 20 kopecks for ice cream. Soon Svetlana’s parents rushed
to look for a fugitive. From her friends, her father found out
where the girl went and with whom and even where they settled. And I realized that he found out
our address and the police might come
and there might be some problems. And Sveta and I used to stop by the yard first
looked if there are any police in the yard. And if there is no police, we calmly
went to the apartment. When we returned to Odessa a few years later
mother-in-law met me with open arms. Because she realized that her daughter is happy,
that she is well and that there is true love. Of course my mom cried,
my dad didn’t want to let me go but Vitalik said that he has serious intentions
to me and everything will be fine. Then it seemed that Vitas got what he
wanted when he was an Odessa teenager: fame, money, creative realization, love. But it was at that moment of his triumph
he lost who was dearest to him in the world. Soon you will see what was the last
conversation between the artist and his mother. He was just crying like a child. What happened on the day of her death? I began to believe in an isoteric connection. And is it true that Vitas has ceased to
communicate with his father? My dad has a special feature. I remember that Alla Pugacheva,
when she saw me backstage on 40 cm platforms, in a fish costume,
wearing a helmet, looked at me and said:
Oh, my God, the victim of the image. It all started with that same
image with gills. Vitas shocked the audience at each
of his performances. There he was shaved,
with a fancy alien helmet on his head. Here he is in the image of a pharaoh. During a tour of China, the singer dressed in
the armor of warrior of terracotta army. This helmet weighs 8 kg. I wore this helmet for exactly 8 years
at each of my concerts, and there were more than 3,000 of them. You know how I risked
my cervical vertebrae. Mother Lilia Mikhailovna gave him an unusual
taste in clothing and the habit of shocking. She sewed me shirts, trousers, belts and decorated
them with rhinestones, mirrors, painted with paints. She had an immense, incredible love for him. She worried about everything,
even though he was an adult boy. I think that he felt this incredible love
and therefore it was mutual. Mother believed more than anyone
that her son would succeed. And she finally saw Vitaly on the big stage,
its take-off and triumph. But in 2001, Lilia Mikhailovna
got seriously ill. I realized that in Odessa
in no case hould it be left. I brought her to Moscow and
put her in the Kremlin clinic, doctors fought for her life
for a long time. And I understood that
she had no options. She’s lying there and her eyes
aren’t saying anything anymore. She looks, looks, and I see her
focusing on me and says: Son, you got a pimple on your cheek.
You need to do something about it. And she hasn’t talked for a month. And I understand that I was
the most beloved person in her life. It was on this day that Vitas needed
to fly to a concert in Sochi. And he had to leave his
mother in the hospital. Imagine, she did not talk for 2 months
and in the morning called me. Calls and says: Son, I feel better. Very good clinic and the doctors are good. I feel better. Your security guard brought me
my favorite soaked apples. She called me on cell phone I say: Mom, I’m very glad,
I’ll be home tomorrow. See you later. And during the concert there
was an unusual event to which the artist at first did not attach much importance. We had such a performance when dancers
raise a parachute and then lower it. And under this parachute about 8 pm
a swallow flew in and died under this parachute. I did not attach any importance to this and after the
concert I was informed that my mother was dead. Liliya Mikhailovna passed away at exactly 8 pm,
but the mystical coincidences did not end there. I informed my dad about
mother’s death the next day and my dad says: I had a dream
last night about Lilichka.. Mom… He said: She rings the doorbell,
I open the door and she stands there and holds something in her hands. and when dad asked:
What do you hold in your hands? and when she opened her palms
there was a swallow. And since then, I’ve been believing
in an isoteric connection That there are some signs
and something exists, and it is necessary to pay attention. The death of his mother
was a real shock for Vitas. She was always with him,
she understood him better than anyone. She always supported
and never condemned. It was especially hard for
the singer to realize that his mother never saw her grandchildren. When we were at the cemetery,
he cried like a child. He could not restrain himself
and cried like a child. He loved Mom very much,
Mom loved him and when he comes to the cemetery
he cannot hold back his tears. To survive this tragedy, the singer went
to Tibet to be alone with himself. And after that trip, Vitas released two
albums that he dedicated to his mother. A few years later Vitas released
the program “The Songs of My Mother” in which he performed her favorite songs. For Vitas, this program was more
than just another show. The death of his mother prompted
him to become more serious. He decided to temporarily abandon extravagant
outfits and replaced them with suits. For the first time, an artist appeared in front
of an audience with a bare neck without gills. She was born in Samara
and when I come to Samara and sing the song “Mother” some
sign necessarily happens the serpentine will fall or the bulb will
turn off or the light will change. You imagine, I always feel her
presence in her hometown. Of course, the memory of her
is always near me. I can always feel her.
She always helps me. I remember her words, I remember
her smell, her hugs. After the death of his mother
the media began to write that Vitas had a difficult
relationship with his father with Vladas Grachev. Apparently the singer stopped communicating
with him and did not see him for years. But Vitas refutes these rumors, although he does not deny that there
are difficulties in their relationship. I want to tell you that I love Dad
very much. Dad did a lot for me. But Dad has a special feature. Just like every other person
has a special feature. These features are related to his lifestyle. He’s just not quite a contact man.
He’s not sociable, more closed, withdrawn. That’s his special feature. Generations of fathers and children
always think differently. There are life questions on which we do not
agree, but this is natural. Now we communicate normally. Looking at the triumph of his son,
the father of Vitas, Vladas Arkadevich also began to sing and
recorded several records. But he could not repeat
the success of his son. Meanwhile, Vitas having conquered Russia
and China, set his sights on the world stage. Now the artist has millions of fans
over the planet. Soon we will show how the artist managed
to conquer the European audience. It was a great honor for me
to work with him. What is famous for his
own Vitas’ daughter. I realized that there is something in it.
She has a talent. And why did the singer sit underground
in the dark for several days. Only food was lowered there. On this video is the big festival of electronic music in Brussels (? Really Boom*). Hundreds of thousands of spectators,
a huge stage, a balloon flying over the crowd. Dozens of cameras shoot shows. Worldwide popular DJ Timmy Trumpet solemnly
announces special guest from Russia Vitas. Vitas’s popularity in the west began suddenly. Back in 2001 he made a non-standard
video for the song “7th Element”. In Russia, the bizarre composition
did not become a hit. Many years later someone published this video
on the English-language Internet resources and suddenly the video began
to gain millions of views. Overseas fans of the singer made
dozens of parodies of the favorite clip. When people put on these foil hats
and say that they are in a good mood and protect themselves from wifi radiation, I realize that my creativity
is not useless in this world. Hearing “7th Element” DJ Timmy Trumpet
decided to remix this song and perform with Vitas
at a grand rave festival. Working with Vitas at a Tomorrowland party can be
compared to fulfilling a crazy dream, because it’s hard to imagine that
you might be lucky to meet Vitas, the man from the most virus video
in the history of humanity. And today Vitas continues to release original clips. Who knows, maybe one of them will be
no less a hit than “Opera # 2” or “7th Element”. For example, in the video “Delala” he himself
acted as a director and cameraman. Many people ask me
what is the meaning of the clip? What is it about? Some strange penguin
walks for 3 minutes. He drives a strange car,
then weirdly turns into you. This is a fictional character
in the style of an arthouse. Which… This is a penguin-man. Vitas admits that in recent years
he has changed a lot, he became older and wiser Eastern spiritual practices
helped him in this. I’ve been initiated underground, I was in the dark,
and only food was lowered to me there. It really was a story like that. When you are underground and in the dark
and the environment does not affect you and you are alone with yourself, then
at that moment you will know oneself. Conditionally speaking, you
can talk to your internal organs. So you’ll know yourself because
you’re not affected by the environment. That’s very helpful. Denis Tolpeko: He has become
more accustomed to sports. I may have influenced him. We played ping pong
with him a couple of times. But Vitas changed even more
when he became a father. In 2008, he and Svetlana had a daughter. The girl was named Alla. And in 2014, the son Maxim was born. You know, when I wake up in the morning
from the kiss of my daughter or son, when he touches my lip or strokes my nose
and says, “Daddy get up, let’s go eat” this is amazing happiness and amazing feeling. And today I live solely for the children
and for my family. And I always want to squeeze them,
all the time I want to squeeze this little joy, squeeze that little joy. I saw his attitude towards Allochka, when he comes in,
she throws herself at him. I think he’s a wonderful father. The singer does not insist that
the children follow in his footsteps. However, already today they show
bright musical abilities. Daughter Alla became popular in China
no less than her father. So it happened that my friend and I
wrote her a song in a few hours. We recorded it quickly, she learned it. I said: Alla, you’re my daughter, do me a favor
singing it at my concert in Moscow. She went out to sing and
someone shot it on the phone. and two days later my friend
called me from the USA and says, “Did you know that your daughter got 6 million
views on the social network in one day?” I could not believe it. Someone shooting it on the phone and
uploaded this video and she got 6 million views. I thought I didn’t have those
numbers in one day. I realized that there is something in it.
She has a talent. And she needs to develop in this direction. She performed this song several times in China
and she received many offers. Now she’s invited to shoot in a Chinese movie.
They’re making her learn Chinese. Maxim is only 5 years old trying
to keep up with his sister. Two weeks ago he took the microphone
and sang a song. And he started hitting the notes,
you can imagine. I guess he can follow in my footsteps too. Maybe he and his sister will record a duet. However, this time Vitas flew
to China without children. To perform at a beauty contest, he wears
a suit decorated with many pins. Fans are already waiting for their idol and now he appears in front of
the 100 thousandth stadium. He performs his main hits. Together with him, a Chinese ballet
show group performs on stage. Then Vitas addresses the audience
with gratitude in Russian and Chinese. China is my second home. I’m very glad and happy to be here. I love you. Vitas runs away from fans
after the concert. But unsuccessfully. This time they tracked which
car their idol will leave the platform. And the next morning Vitas flew away
from China on a tour. The artist’s tours will take place
not only in the Celestial Empire, but also in Japan, Korea, Brazil and the USA. It seems that the singer seriously intends
to conquer the entire planet. Sergey Pudovkin: There is not a single Russian artist… no matter how you feel about Vitas
and you can love him, not love him, but in his honor there are monuments in China,
more than 500 wax figures are already open not only in China, but also in Indonesia, Japan,
Korea, will be in Brazil, France, Germany. the fact that such an image
and such a brand were created and such success was achieved
it is the result of today and today’s success. I dream of luck in my life and in the lives
of my children and family. And as my father said, to whom
I always relate well and listen him, when he was asked: Vladas, what do you
wish our viewers? he says: Good luck. they asked: Why not health? He says: Because on the Titanic everyone
was healthy and there was no luck.
