In addition to the poetic gift of Igor Sorin very early manifested musical talent. The guy sang beautifully and improvised. If you combine all the talents of Sorin, before the eyes appeared a born entertainer. Perhaps the boy has long been drawn to this side because one day he read the announcement of the audition for heroes children’s movie «the adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn» and immediately went to audition.
