Her brother Eugene said, "Alla Pugacheva her mother did." She herself was a professional singer and did not, but her daughter saw the continuation and the opportunity to realize unfulfilled dreams. With 5 years of Allah I dealt with the music teacher, who drew attention to her perfect pitch and musical abilities. Daily piano was given at 3:00, and by the time when Alla entered music school, she was already well mastered the tool.
Stage debut Alla Pugacheva took place in 1954, when she was only 5 years old. The concert was held in the Hall of Columns. Zinaida Odegova recalled: "Alia was a concert in the Hall of Columns quietly, and she saw the completed room, pale, hid behind the scenes - she grew up a shy, but I said:" It is necessary, Alla. You're a big "- and it came out ...".
After the end of 8th grade Pugacheva admitted to the school Ippolitova-Ivanov at the conductor-choral department. And in the 2nd course, she embarked on her first concert tour in the national team Mosestrady program. The next few years she spent in a tour of the Far North and the polar region as a part of propaganda team "Youth", which is why it had problems with the study. As a result of the prolonged absence of the classroom singer was removed from the final exams, and she did not get a diploma. After that she was sent to work as a teacher of music in one of the schools where she taught for six months. And only after that Pugachev finally admitted to the exam and was awarded a diploma "Conductor of the choir."
Then again began touring activity - to become conductor of the choir Pugacheva not planned, and she performed as a team pop-circus college, ensemble "New Electronics" groups "Muscovites" and "Jolly Fellows". Together with the latest singer won the Grand Prix at the festival "Golden Orpheus" for the song "Harlequin". From that moment began its triumphant path as a solo performer "Mosconcert".
In the late 1970's. Alla Pugacheva has enjoyed immense popularity throughout the Union. In this glory was a downside: once it has become the object of hunting a serial maniac. On account of Anatoly Nagiyev was raped and murdered several women, but for some time his crimes go unpunished - the police could not get out on his trail. Some of his victims suffered only because of the fact that apparently reminded him of Pugachev. In September 1980 the perpetrator was finally able to grab. He was tried and sentenced to death.

Everyone knows that Alla Pugacheva has not only vocal, but also artistic data, making it more than once invited to the movies. However, as a rule, it appears on the screen as a cameo - that is, itself. And her acting potential has remained unrealized. It is known that she auditioned in several films, but was not approved. Thus, the picture remained with her samples for the lead role in the film "Road to Calvary", which as a result has got a professional actress Irina Alferov. The singer also auditioned for the role of the soloist of the ensemble in the musical film "Centerline from the sky", but approved graduate GITIS Lyudmila Suvorkinu. However, the heroine singing voice Pugacheva. As Nadia Sheveleva in "Twist of fate ...". And the most well-known film works Pugacheva became the film "The Woman Who Sings".

The singer has never hidden the fact that she has bad habits. She smoked from 13 years to indulge in drinking. One day she said: "All the best of what I have written, all the crazy ideas - it is carried out, shall we say, not without the influence of alcohol. However, and it too had trouble from it. Still work inside the house has always been under the influence of wine glasses. " However, contrary to widespread rumors, the singer has never suffered from alcohol dependence.

Her professionalism no one ever doubted. She is so dedicated that time was not ready to risk their lives. About her desperate character was legendary, and every reason for this. On one of these occasions the circus said Igor Kio "She wanted to sing their new smash hit" Million scarlet roses ", swinging on a trapeze. This trapezoid is arranged as follows: by pressing the button below it rapidly shoots under the dome. Alla secretly we decided it would be more effective if she will perform under the dome. She gave to the assistant, who stands on the remote control and presses a button, the plate with his autograph - and he did the right moment lifted. And I was even asked to this, when it begins to sing, spin the trapezoid on its axis, so that later it untwisted. When the shooting started, we just went cold with horror - after all it was planned to make a bottom. Even trapeze artists under the laws of safety when rising to a height of more than five meters, are required to wear a safety rope - Lounge. Pugachev also worked without any lounges without any insurance. And he does it all as if it daily have to deal with such cases. After shooting Alla confessed to me that the only thing she was afraid of in life - this is the height ... ".
The title of People's Artist of the USSR Alla Pugacheva received the day before the official collapse. Thus, it was the last singer to be awarded this title.
Although his retirement from the stage Diva stated more than once, after each creative pause, she came back again. To the delight of his fans, it will be so this time. Already 2 days after his birthday Alla Pugacheva will give a big anniversary concert in the Kremlin Palace in Moscow.
