The Russian Army choir surprised the world this week on St Petersburg television when they sang the famous James Bond movie song “Skyfall” originally performed by Adele.
A seven man group sang Adele’s famous song which in fact has won Oscar surprisingly well on a breakfast television show on the city’s Channel 5. Let’s be honest, you would not have thought this will ever happen – Russian army choir singing one of the world’s most famous spy movies theme song!
Russia’s military choir was founded in 1928 and is well known for performing military classics like Katjusha, which tells the story of a wife yearning for her husband at the front. But this choir also has a proud tradition of making cover versions of popular songs. They have performed Sweet Home Alabama and made Men at Work’s Land Down Under as a Russian folk song in the past.
