Anna Pletneva is a former soloist of two well-known pop groups Lyceum and Vintage. Tired of working in groups, the singer chose to pursue a solo career, changing, among other things, the format of the songs.
Biography and education
The popular Russian singer was born in Moscow on August 21, 1977. Anya studied at a school with an in-depth study of choreography, but from childhood she dreamed of a career as a singer. The girl showed bright artistic abilities almost from the cradle, so even before enrolling in school, the parents sent the child to study in a dance ensemble at the Ostankino television studio.
After graduating from school, Anna entered the conservatory at the department of pop and jazz singing. And here Pletneva showed herself in the best possible way, as a result of which she received an offer to become a teacher of one of the courses at the conservatory.
Career and work
Anna Pletneva's career growth along the musical ladder began with the Lyceum group. The team held a casting on the occasion of Lena Perova's departure from the group. The singer took part in it. Pletneva easily passed all the qualifying rounds and became one of the soloists. The group in the distant 90s was at the peak of popularity, the trio received several awards from the Russian stage, including the "Silver Microphone" and "Ovation".
Anna spent 8 years with the group, during which, according to her, she gained considerable experience in pop art. Lyceum constantly toured, the participants had to work in different conditions, which became a good school of life for Pletneva.
On one of the flights, Anna met the idol of her childhood - Vladimir Presnyakov. Even in her school days, the girl carefully kept the autograph received by her brother at the Presnyakov concert and dreamed of singing a duet with him on the same stage. The dream was destined to come true at this very moment. During the flight, Anna confessed to Vladimir that she would like to perform a song with him, and the singer, amazed by the girl's words, could not refuse her. On the same evening, in one of the combined concerts, they stood on the same stage and performed a song in a duet.
Pletneva terminated the contract with Lyceum in 2004, refusing to take part in a political action related to the events in Ukraine. During the same period, Anna collects her own group called "Coffee with milk" and releases the song "9 ½ weeks". However, despite the fact that the song was played on all popular TV channels, it did not bring the desired success to the singer. A year later, the group had to be disbanded due to the unprofitability of the project.
The next step into the world of show business was "Vintage". The team consisted of Pletneva herself and Alexei Romanov, who was the songwriter for Anna's previous project. The format of the compositions has changed, as well as the images of the performers, which allowed the project to "shoot". For a long time, the songs of "Vintazh" occupied the leading lines of the music charts, and the name of Pletneva was well known. The first single "Criminal Love" was released in the spring of 2007, and in 2008 the band began to tour actively. In the same period, Pletneva, together with Elena Korikova, shot a video for the song "Bad Girl", which received the MTV Russia Music Awards 2008.
The presentation of the debut album "SEX" took place a year later (2009). It includes such songs as: "Loneliness of Love", "Eve" and others. 2011 was marked by the release of the album "Anechka", which included such compositions as "Roman", "Trees" and "Sign of Aquarius".
In 2003, the singer got married, but the marriage was not destined to last long and it ended in divorce. From her first husband, Anna has a daughter, Varvara. The husband left the family almost immediately after the birth of his daughter. Anna became the initiator of the divorce. According to her, her husband was not ready for fatherhood, which upset the singer and even caused a prolonged depression.
The second husband was businessman Kirill Syrov, from whom Anna has two children: daughter Maria and son Kirill. Children were born in 2005 and 2009, respectively. Acquaintance with the second spouse happened long before a serious relationship. The man noticed a pretty girl in one of the nightclubs and went to meet her. Anna left her phone number, but soon forgot about the acquaintance and, moreover, the number turned out to be incorrect. The second meeting took place only three years later. At that time, the future husband of Pletneva was already married, managed to give birth to a child and file for divorce. This meeting also turned out not to be fateful, Anna ignored the man. For the third time, Pletneva and Syrov met 10 years later in Dnepropetrovsk. In order to provoke communication, Kirill bought out the room booked by Anna and she had to live with Nastya Makarevich. Trying to understand the situation, Pletneva asked a hotel employee to help, but Syrov came to the rescue instead. From that moment on, the relationship began to develop rapidly, but did not immediately develop into a family relationship, since Anna did not know how daughter Maria would perceive the appearance of a new man in her life. Now the family already has three children, and Kirill became not only Anna's husband, but also her producer.
