In Moscow held a farewell ceremony with the former soloist of group “Ivanushki International” Oleg Yakovlev, reports “RIA Novosti”.
Near the Necropolis Troekurov cemetery formed a queue of those who came to bid farewell to the artist.
At the farewell ceremony with Yakovlev arrived member of the group Andrey Grigoriev-Apollo and singer Katya LEL.
“We had a very warm relationship. He was an incredibly talented person with an amazing voice. In his 47 years he looked like 30 max, because I was in amazing shape. Of course, I understand that the life of an artist is no easy thing, especially 15 years to be in the group “Ivanushki International”, to be in the top, to have a rich creative life. Correct to say that artists burn out, give yourself all. Michiel was a real singer, a creative person who lived for the sake of it,” said Katya LEL.
