Elena Cherkasova – Russian singer and artist, who’s gifted with one of the strongest voice in the world now-a-days. Once you listen to this brilliant singing and you will never forget it.
Elena was born in a very deep countryside in Russia, which is situated on the river Volga. And just like the piece of gold got from nature unbelievable power and bright colors what was harmonically released then in her looks and voice. In spite of the fact that Elena had all abilities to establish herself as an artist her way to The Star Olympus was quirt long and hard. Like each talented child Elena finished music school where she sang in chorus, played piano and after that even was a teacher of music in the local kinder garden. Was living in a very small city Elena didn’t have any chances to try to build up her own artist career. There were no recording studios, concerts halls or management agencies at her place. Funny it or not, but not having even a room for the vocal rehearsals, Elena trained her voice in the bath-house (Russian sauna house) close to her home where she lived with her parents. She stayed in the dark bath room late nights before the mirror imagining that she performs in a big concert hall…
As the strong wish to be a professional artist never left her mind in 2004 Elena took a trip to city Saratov to participate in music artist show “Music Bridge”. When Elena was pre-listened by the general producer of “Music Bridge” Anna C. Nova she (Anna) was not only extremely impressed by her voice, but just was stunned by Elena’s excellent abilities and talent on the one hand and at the same time by very strong personality what’s flowing out like the wild river. “It was something like hurricane what knocked me down. Especially her huge voice. – Anna said. – This girl had to learn a lot, but I felt immediately that I wanted to work with her. It was just like an experimental project if I could make the real pearl out of what I heard and saw. Elena didn’t know a word in English language, but all my projects are only English language music and her voice and singing technical manner were very far away from usable international level. Anyhow when I offered Elena so-called a trial period in my production company (what I always do before making the general artist agreement) my colleagues thought that I should be crazy”.
But it seems it was a right choice. After spending enormous hours at the studio of training, learning and preparing Anna and Elena recorded some wonderful songs written and produced by Nova. The first of them “ANOTHER LOVE” (pop ballad in the veins of Celine Dion and Whitney Houston) was included to CD compilation of the best Anna’s songs “Best of Nova” (CD was released in USA in 2006 on Novasongs label). Pop dance song “(YOU’LL BE) MINE” became number one in Music Rush chart (the very first one from all Nova’s productions presented on Music Rush). American music publisher Lames Goettel said: “It’s one of the best voices I have heard in years. It reminds me Gloria Ganor and Bonnie Tyler”.
In 2009 Elena and Anna started a so-called World Peace project and recorded together “STAY ALIVE” and “WE ARE ONE WORLD”. The idea of the whole project is a huge and great and somehow has a reflection of the global world problems. These songs are written to give a moral support and helping hand to all people who feels unsaved, upset and hurt. Probably because of that fact the songs composed in gospel style – the most progressive and “never giving up” style. “Already a long ago Elena and me were planning to record gospel music. – Anna said. – It seems it’s very close to Elena and can show the most original potentiality of her voice. And once we got the time has come to do that. From the bottom of our hearts we want these songs to become such a kind of hymns and make people look at life not so pessimistic. I must say that I found this idea in Elena’s character: seeing her optimism, power and strength not to give up and reach a goal in life”. Music video on “Stay Alive” followed shortly after, impressed public and became #1 in the international video charts. As well as Anna and Elena have recorded some another tracks with gospel touches like "SUMMER HEAT" and "NOTHING TO FIGHT".
Also there are another music tracks what brought to Elena and Anna a great success. Recorded in 2012 "TIME TO REMEMBER" was influenced by the great music of the 90th dance stars. Video on this song became #1 in Music Rush video chart. Pop rock song “NOT THE END OF THE WORLD” was recorded in 2013 and dedicated to the music of Joe Cocker. This song is extremely loved by the public and became #5 in Rock chart on Song Vault. The song “WILL YOU MARRY ME (VALENTINE LOVESTORY), which is also included to the World Peace project, was recorded by Elena and Anna in 2014. This R&B song is for everyone who’s in love and this production was produced especially for the celebration of The Day of Valentine. This single was officially released at the end of January, 2015 and gave much love and happiness to Elena’s fans.
