The long-anticipated solo concert of Russian pop singer Vitas was held on Friday night in the Great Hall of The People in Beijing. The Star Daily reported on Saturday that the handsome 26-year-old confirmed his status as a legendary tenor through his enchanting performance.

During the show Vitas thrilled the audience with his boy-like voice whose range spans five octaves. Along with his "sounds from heaven", Vitas showcased his unique dance moves similar to the space walk.

To please the Chinese audience, when performing a Russian folk song, the young tenor changed the lines of the refrain into "I love you", and sang them in Chinese.

The concert's climax came when Vitas and Chinese female singer Siqingerile performed a chorus of "A Night at Moscow Suburb", a love song deep in the memories of both Chinese and Russian people.

Beijing is the first stop of his concert tour, which also includes performances in Shanghai, Chongqing, Chengdu and Guangzhou.

Before coming to China, the gifted young star was already a celebrity in this country after his "Opera No. 2" became popular via the internet.

Vitas, whose real name is Vitalii Vladasovich Grachyov, is an A-list singer in Russia. In 2002, the 19-year-old Vitas became the youngest singer to hold a solo concert at the Kremlin in Moscow.

Besides singing, Vitas has also starred in three movies and two stage plays. He is also a fashion designer.
