That is how this magnificent child is known in Russia. She.... Well, here is what she was up against the Children Voice in 2016. She had to sing a song from before, probably, her parents were born. One of the greatest Soviet comedies made after Mikhail Bulgakov's Ivan Vasilievich Changes Profession (aka Ivan Vasilievich: Back to the Future, ahem) Here is the video from 1973, in short--I was young. Like really-really young.
So, forty plus years later a kid has to top a cult Soviet music and film classic. So she goes to stage and...well, she kills it.
In general, all those Voice contests are a complete BS, but they do get us closer to real talent. So Yasya (Yasenka) does Kukushka (while Son of a Bitch drummer tries to take away her thunder) and she delivers on live radio (we need more cow bell;-))
This song (Ballad of Three Sons) requires translation. But, what can I say, if Russian Prime Minister's wife is ecstatic (Medvedev is sleeping, as always, most likely), that should be considered strongly since it is a celebration of a Love, Family and Commitment in ancient Russian city of Murom.
But she opened with another Russian miracle, Valentina Biryukova, with Stork on The Roof. People in Russia call her God's gift. I am no believer but this child is touched...
Stork on the roof--peace on Earth.... It is Friday.
