acoustic guitar and get to know popular performers of our time.
Mikhail Nepip from Sevastopol was in the center of the stage and in front of a
thousand public. The boy has cerebral palsy. But when this child reads the poem
“Letter of the Mother” by Sergey Esenin, the spectators stop breathing, and
after the performance, he received the standing applauds. The boy wanted to
meet with Igor Krutoy and his wish came true.
