Her website is ValentinaLisitsa. See also amazing concert at train station Liszt Hungarian Rhapsody #12, played by Valentina Lisitsa on an amazing piano in St Pancras

[May 23, 2018] Polina Gagarina

Quote: "The Eurovision Contest certainly is as dreadful and cheesy as ever". And her song Polina Gagarina - A Million Voices (Russia) 2015 Eurovision Song Contest did not impress me. I think Polina Gagarina is stronger in singing more serious songs such as Нет, не любил он, then Europop. But she definitely can do both -- see The winner takes it all

    [Mar 23, 2018] Enough to lie, the memories are long gone

    Enough to lie, the memories are long gone,
    Days of the past will never more return.
    Let's silence sobbing of guitar before dawn.
    I want to sing and laugh, love and enjoy.
    Be quiet Gypsy, enough to sing
    About days poisoned by grief.
    The old song will not warm me up.
    Old life and lies I want to leave.
    Be quiet Gypsy, don't cry my tribe,
    The fiery melody will fly.
    Oh, how much I'd like believe My future life won't ever pass me by.
    2. Your love is gone forever. That I know.
    We came together and then we parted ways.
    But ,as before, I won't be weeping, no!
    Because ahead are many cheery days.
    Be quite Gypsy, enough to sing
    About days poisoned by grief.
    The old song will not warm me up.
    Old life and lies I want to leave.
    Be quite Gypsy, don't cry my tribe,
    The fiery melody will fly.
    Oh, how much I'd like believe
    My future life won't ever pass me by.

    [Jan 25, 2018] Ludmila Senchina

    The sex symbol of the USSR. Really magic unattainable princess. Both for common people and members of Politburo ;-). The first secretary of Leningrad Obcom of Communist Party (probably the second, if no the first, most powerful person in the USSR kind of Dick Cheney under Bush II in Brezhnev regime; he later competed with Gorbachov for the position of the First Secretary of the CPSU and lost) was her devoted fan.
    A very talented singer, beautiful woman, unique, really unique, strong personality despite fragile appearance of Cinderella. Quite difficult life with abuse in family, certain periods out popularity, when she was force to move to Arctic North, Maragan (the place with -40F in winter with of GULAG camps for US reader) to survive. But she preserved her unique cheerful personality till the end of file life (at 67 years old from cancer).
    Her favorite writer was Jerome K. Jerome not a typical favorite author for popular singers.
    A huge loss for us. RIP.
