The legendary half-Finnish/half-Russian contemporary pop singer with a powerful instrument... Kirka had a very unique voice with lots of power to it. His voice started degrading during the 90's, though, probably because of intense touring and demanding songs. It is a shame he didn't record more English songs, apart from the extremely cheesy Finnish metal albums. His pronunciation was Tony Kakko-like (aka. quite hilarious and typically Finnish), but he still nailed all the songs he attempted. Earlier during his career, he sang as a ragged tenor-like singer, attempting heavy metal as well, but he spent the later days of his career singing with a prominently deeper and raspier baritone. For this, his voice is well described as a 'baritenor', a voice that includes considerable qualities from both a baritone and a tenor.
