Leonid Agutin is having its fiftieth anniversary.
Unbelievable but true: the “barefoot boy” Leonid Agutin today marks 50 years. Early in the morning artist “showered” with congratulations to the Network, calls and personal messages. But the most touching congratulation, the singer, of course, received from his wife. In addition to the words spoken personally, Anzhelika Varum wished loved all the things without which can not live a happy a true artist.
“The longer I live in this world, the more incredible seems to me how two people find each other and for many years remain the closest people in the world. Don’t want to know what people think about this the cynics, pragmatists and psychologists. Prefer to perceive and accept this gift as a miracle. And as a gift to guard and keep it. The older I get, the less I want to talk about it publicly. But today is exceptional case when you need to say! We met about a quarter of a century. Over the years, our lives were a lot different… But not for one moment did I regret, as has been our fate, none of the events of life together I would not like to erase from memory or to replace a number of more positive aspects. The beauty and brightness of life in this “up&down”… And after twenty years one thing I can say for sure: I am grateful to fate for what in my life is my soul mate, my soul mate, my protector, the person who understands and feels me as yourself. Today I congratulate the musician, artist, composer and poet Leonid Agutin happy anniversary! In addition to what is usual in such cases to wish family and friends, as an artist and musician I want to wish you, my dear, inexhaustible inspiration and a warm, sensitive, appreciative audience for long, long years, because your music warms our hearts! Be happy! Happy birthday!”
