Vitas - The Star

Vitas IS Russian, 28, singer, composer and actor.
Guess where I found out about him? 
Yes, in China. No, not Russia but China. He's as famous as any Chinese singer, if not even more so.

Sometimes I'm surprised at the type of music that appeals to audiences from different culture. But then again, perhaps I shouldn't be. Afterall, music transcends language, culture and time (age). It just simply is. The music of Vitas? Well, I love it. Not sure if it's everyone's cup of tea, but to my surprise, many Chinese in mainland China love it too. 

Music is music... either you like it or you don't. So, if you haven't heard his music and vocal before, check it out on Youtube. There are plenty of selection from this singer.

My personal favorites are:

I was very surprised to find a review of Vitas on Lunch to say the least! I am from Russia, but i've only seen him on TV. I didn't know his name was Vitaliy, that is actually my husbands name! I like your List of Inspirational Musicians, I certainly agree with you on Andrea Bocelli. I've seen him perform live, it was amazing! I has goosebumps.

Vitas is unique and I love operatic pop singers. He's very hot in China for the last couple of years and I happen to see him on TV when I was there. I like many European artists as well. The problem with living in the U.S. is that one seldom comes across other foreign talents. Emma Shapplin is another great one. I wrote a few reviews on singers like Il DivoPatrizio Buanne & Josh Groban. Also the music of Secret Garden & Omar Akram. Check them out, I think you might like them. If you love Andrea Bocelli, did you know he sang a duet with Hayley D. Westenra too and that's a great song?! Hayley has a lovely voice. I especially love the song Pokarekare Ana!
