My name is Mikhail Kharitonov and I’m the younger son of Leonid Mikhailovich. I have a very sad news for all the admirers of the famous Russian operatic singer. Leonid Mikhailovich Kharitonov has passed away on the 19th of September, 2017, after suffering his 5th heart attack. This happened the next day after his 84th birthday.
For that reason and in the memory of the artist, I would like to show you his favorite Russian romance song which he considered to be the main song of his life – “Shine, shine, my star!”. Farewell, dear father and a great singer!
