MOSCOW, October 13 (Itar-Tass) - Boris Dyakov, a soloist of the world-famous Alexandrov Song and Dance Ensemble of the Russia Army, says he would be glad to represent Russia at the Eurovision song contest.
“We have a richest potential,” Dyakov, who has been singing in the company for nine years, told Itar-Tass at the anniversary concert on the occasion of the ensemble’s 85th jubilee on Saturday. “My career in the ensemble is a milestone in my life. The company’s repertory features a colorful palette of genres, from opera to folk song, and I love it very much. A singer here has everything needed to perfect his professional and creative skills.”
Earlier, head of the Alexandrov Ensemble, Leonid Malev, told journalists that the Russian defence ministry was eyeing to send the ensemble’s soloist, either Boris Dyakov or Yevgeny Bulochnikov, to the Eurovision song contest in 2014. “We already have lyrics, now it’s up to a composer to right a good song,” he added.
