The recently deceased musicians were remembered at the Victoria Music Award. Dima Bilan honored the memory of Yura Shatunov, who died eight months ago, with her speech. After a moment of silence and Bilan’s moving rendition of the famous “White Roses”, a good half of the audience took out handkerchiefs. People were crying…
– In these years, of course, history was built. A lot of legendary things happened, I talked to a lot of people, Dima Bilan said. – For example, I became friends with Yuri Shatunov last year, we talked as part of my big anniversary concert. After that, we got closer. Called, spoken by video conference. He showed me his family, his son, new arrangements, songs, studio. When people compete, this rarely happens. It’s quite difficult to talk heart to heart, because it always turns into competition. Very sorry.
Shatunov’s death is also hard for TV presenter Lera Kudryavtseva.
“Yurka and I sang together two years ago,” Lera Kudryavtseva admitted to KP.RU. – We had a person, Andrei Razin, against whom we were friends.
Razin raised him. And he took me too.
I won all the trials against Razin. And Yura too. I don’t even want to talk about Razin… an abnormal person.
Of course, for many it was a shock that Yura’s heart could not take it. Unfortunately, men at this age, very often from nervousness, can earn themselves a heart attack. Take care of your nerves! Especially the men. We women do not express emotions like this, although it is necessary …, – believes the TV personality.
Recall: 48-year-old Shatunov did not have titles, so his colleagues helped bury Shatunov with dignity.
– Only one place in the cemetery cost more than three million rubles, – says the director of the late singer Arkady Kudryashov.
According to Nikolai Baskov, the composer and producer Igor Krutoy bought a place at the Shatunov cemetery.
– Yura Shatunov did not look like anyone. But at the same time, he was an ordinary guy, so close and familiar to everyone, ”Nikolai Baskov, the presenter of the Victoria Award, noted from the stage.
