Translated from Lithuanian, the name Gintare means "amber". By the will of fate, the talented singer and pianist Gintare Jautakaite, who was born in Lithuania, found herself overseas. Her clear voice is still heard from there. She not only realized herself as a performer, but also became a successful composer and poet, artist and actress.
Her silver voice was named the best pop soprano in 1981. The young vocalist suddenly flashed on stage, becoming famous after performing the song "In my room". It was a resounding success after winning the competition for young performers.
They were attracted not only by the recognizable, transparent-crystal vocals, but also by the special beauty, sincerity and soft accent, which gave a feeling of lightness and amazing freshness. The biography of the future celebrity began in 1958. A girl was born in Klaipeda.
Musical talent manifested itself early. Six-year-old Gintare became the winner of the children's song competition in Dnepropetrovsk. The vocalist herself wrote the work for him. In 1981, the girl performed a composition that made the native of Lithuania a star. "Upper Room" and to this day remains one of the most beloved pop songs. She breaks records for the number of covers, but even now Gintare remains one of her best performers.
Yautakaite graduated from the Academy in the class "Classical piano and jazz improvisation" in her hometown, graduated from Vilnius University. Alexey Kozlov drew attention to the talented singer, and rehearsals began with Arsenal. But suddenly the girl disappeared.
The reason was simple: Gintare married a foreigner and went with him to the United States. There she took up building a career from scratch. And in the nineties, the star went to the UK. Gintare composed music, wrote words.
Success was not long in coming. In 1998 her songs were included in the best music charts. In March 2000, the album "Earthless" appeared, the compositions from which were included in the top ten club songs in England.
The family had two sons, Martin (Martynas) and Jason. Martin chose a career as a designer, and the eldest, Jason, became a surgeon.
The marriage broke up, and the singer remarried. A programmer became her chosen one. Since 2005, they have been raising a common daughter, Elizabeth-Grace. The girl is engaged in swimming, wins the competition. She is not interested in a musical career: the vocalist's daughter plans to become a veterinarian.
And mother did not force the children to play music, to master a musical instrument: she saw perfectly well, so all three are not interested in it.
