(biography, photos, videos) Pelageya Khanova
Singer with an amazing voice Pelageya Sergeevna Khanova — native Siberian. She was born in the summer of 1986 in Novosibirsk. With its birth in the sky of Russian culture flashed a bright star, strange, and unlike any other.
This girl at first, everything was unusual: the name of rapid growing up, a surprising tone of voice. At first Pelagia was named Pauline. So I decided registrars, who believe that Pauline is derived from the «legacy» name Pelagia. Later, when it’s time to get a passport, Pelagia has corrected the error. His old name she cherishes, because that was the name of her grandmother. And khans last name inherited from his stepfather, his own father the girl remembers.
Musical ability and stunning voice Pelageya Khanova has inherited from his mother, jazz singer. Meanwhile, the mother whose singing career was tragic (Svetlana Khanova lost his voice after a long illness), has invested in the daughter of his heart and soul. Seeing that girl in the cradle started to show extraordinary musical abilities, the woman made every effort to develop her talent.
Already in infancy Pelagia tried to repeat the mother who sings her a lullaby, the whole musical phrase. In 3 years the girl was surprised all the others that already knew how to read. Read her first book was the satirical novel «Gargantua and Pantagruel».
With a stage Pelageya Khanova met in 4 years. It happened in St. Petersburg. Mom took the little daughter to the exhibition of avant-garde artists.

Continued performance in the kindergarten native of Novosibirsk, where little Pauline regularly gave «concerts» on all holidays.
In 8 years Khanova went to musical school in Novosibirsk, which operated at the Conservatory. She was the first singer in the history of the institution. Here 9-year-old star first heard the leader of the musical group «Kalinov the bridge» Dmitry Revyakin. He invited parents to bring their daughter to the capital, where she will be able to participate in the contest «Morning star».
The Council Revyakin was correct: Pelageya received the title «Best performer of folk songs in Russia in 1996». Participation in the «Morning star» was a watershed event in the life of a little performer. From this point Pelageya Khanova made a rapid career rise. Soon the unique voice of the Siberian heard not only compatriots. Jacques Chirac called the young singer «the Russian Edith Piaf». She applauded Hillary Clinton, and Boris Yeltsin with tears in her eyes, called «a symbol of Russia’s revival.»

R Khan goes to study in music school at the Gnessin school. At this time, she recorded their debut album «Lubo!».
Vocals does the girl’s mother. An amazing range of 4 octaves is an obstacle for many eminent teachers: they are afraid to engage with young talent, not to spoil a unique natural data Pelagia. Under the leadership of Svetlana Honowai the young singer mastered difficult Belcanto singing.
