“Mr. Trololo” Eduard Khill passed away
The Russian singer Eduard Khill mostly known as “Mr. Trololo” has died at the age 77.
He became a virtual Internet sensation in 2010.
Eduard Khil, a Brezhnev-era Russian singer dubbed “Mr. Trololo” after a video featuring his unique brand of baritone yodeling, suffered a stroke more than a week ago, Radio Liberty writes. Khil (also spelled as Hill) was living in relative obscurity until he was catapulted into stardom once again when a clip of his 1976 song “I Am Very Happy Because I Am Finally Coming Home” went viral in the United States. Khil was awarded the prestigious title of People’s Artist of Russia in 1974 and was honored with the Russian Order for Services to the Homeland in 2009.
The Associated Press quotes a press officer at the city’s culture department, Ksenia Kachalova, as saying Khil died in a St. Petersburg hospital on the night of June 3.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent his condolences to Khil’s family. His funs are expressing condolences by various social networks as well.Հետևեք մեզ նաև Telegram-ում
