In 1993 in a movie theater "Plamya" Igor Ballo had opened a night club called "Zhar ptitsa" (now "Beverly Hills") on Kudrinskaya Square. It is one of the popular and famous places in Moscow. Popular Russian and foreign artists of the world show business were performing there. Igor has very good relationships with the most of them. You could see him with Grace Jones, Chris Rea and Julio Iglesias. This friendship discovered Igor's talent - he began to sing. Was it a whim or a caprice? Actually Igor is singing since he was a little child. His mother was sure that sooner or later her son will begin to sing. Igor himself diddn't take it serious.
In 1994, during the "Christmas meetings" consert in "Zhar ptitsa" club Alla Pugacheva told Igor that he should sing because he has an awesome voice. Gloria Geiner told him so too.
