Vitas is known as the “ weird guy” who sang Chum Drum Bedrum (“7th Element”). I first saw him in that video which was really crazy but it was pretty obvious how talented he is. I was just watching this video where he performs “Opera #2” and I was thinking that it’s challenging to take him seriously after you’ve watched him perform “7th Element” first. haha
FYI, his talent is not limited to singing as he designs his own stage costumes, too. DIVA (ДИВА) is the name of the band that accompanies Vitas during his concerts.
Well, if you were entertained watching him perform “7th Element”, I have no doubt you’d love him sing “Opera #2” here sans fish gills. It was the best selling record in Russia in 2001, 2002, & 2003. That is THREE whole YEARS.
A little info about this guy… Vitaliy Vladasovich Grachov is a Russian singer known for his unique falsetto and possesses a five-octave vocal range.His music is often difficult to categorize, incorporating elements of techno, dance, classical, jazz, and folk music.
I thought this guy’s so amazing that I decided to add this interview (with English subtitltes) for those who want to know more about him.
