Pop star and actress Kristina Orbakaite was born on the 25th of May 1971 in Moscow, Russia. From the early years she was surrounded by talented and artistic people. Her father Mykolas Orbakas is a circus performer. Her mother is a “living legend” of Soviet and Russian pop-culture Alla Pugachova. From her mother Kristina inherited a perfect ear and the love for music, her father passed on his dancing and acting skills.
Even though Christina was born in Moscow she spent much of her childhood in the Lithuanian town of Šventoji. At the age of 7 she debuted in the Soviet childrens TV program "Veseliye Notki" (Happy Music Notes) with the song "Solnishko Smeetsa". In 1982 she sang the song "Pust' Govoryat" in the popular TV program "Utrenyaya Pochta". However, she did not become popular until 1983, when she filmed the movie "Chuchelo" (Scarecrow) where she played a girl who was different from everyone else.
She made her singing debut in 1992 with the song "Pogovorim" (Let's Talk). After two years, she released her first album "Vernost'". Christina was awarded a "World Music Award" in 2002 for the "Best Selling Russian Artist", and "MuzTV Music Award" in 2005 and 2006 for the "Best Female singer" in Russia.
When Kristina was a child she would study vocals and music every day after school, and after a visit to the Bolshoi Theater she convinced her mom to take her to a ballet school. Studying ballet helped her later in life when she became a part of Alla Pugachova’s dancing troop “Recital”. Kristina first appeared on TV at the age of seven with the song “The Sun Is Laughing”. In 1982 in the popular TV program “Morning Mail” she performed her first hit “Let Them Speak” (music by Igor Nikolaev) which was released on vinyl.
Kristina’s first taste of fame came not from music but from the movies. Legendary director Rolan Bykov chose her to play a role of a fifth grader who fights for her independence and for being who she really is in the now a classic movie “Scarecrow”. For her role in this movie Kristina won many international awards and it was shown numerous times on the U.S. independent movie channels. “I started making money at age 11” remembers Kristina, “then I felt what it is like to be independent. I will always live like this; it’s probably in my nature”.
Kristina’s music career started in 1992. On Alla Pugachova’s popular Christmas show, she performed a song which was written by Igor Nikolaev called “Let’s Talk”. Shortly after, two music videos were released – “Call Me” and “Sad” with both becoming instant hits in Russia. In 1995 Kristina formed a group “Chuchelo”. This band of professional musicians and dancers was later renamed “Limita Extreme”.
“The Princess of Russian stage - her music is popular all over the world” – that’s the way she was introduced to prince Albert at the “World Music Awards” in Monte Carlo in May of 2000 where Kristina received an award for being the most popular singer in Russia. On the 21st of May 1991 her first son Nikita was born. She is currently married to a Russian businessman named Mikhail Zemtsov and has two sons: Nikita born in 1991, and Deni born in 1998. On November 19th 2011 she officially confirmed that she was pregnant. Kristina gave birth to a daughter on March 30th 2012 and named her Claudia. “My mother always taught me to be diligent and staying committed to my work and I want to raise my sons the same way”. To Kristina’s credit are thirteen albums, hundreds of concerts and numerous movie roles.
