Soviet listeners met Robert Young in October 1973, when the English singer first toured the USSR. His performances were held with great success in Moscow, Leningrad, Kiev and other cities of the Soviet Union. After these tours the singer became a frequent guest of our country. The creative path of Robert Young began in a military band in one of the provincial cities of England. Then he came to London, where he prepared for a career as an opera singer for seven years, but later decided that his true vocation was a song. Robert Young came to fame in the early 70s, after he was awarded the Outstanding Male Voice 1971 prize, and in 1972 Young was awarded the first prize and the Press Prize at the Ljubljana Festival.
