gorbachevMikhail Gorbachev, the former leader of the Soviet Union before its collapse, has recored an album of love songs in memory of his wife Raisa; who died of Leukemia ten years ago.

The “Songs for Raisa” CD has been recorded by Mr. Gorbachev with the help of famous Russian pop singer Andrei Makarevich — a product of his ‘Perestroika’ reforms. “The CD lists seven of Raisa’s favorite love songs,” Mr. Gorbachev was quoted as saying by Interfax. “I sang them myself. The CD will be on sale at our London charity auction,” he said, adding that the album will not go on public sale in music stores.

Speaking of that London bash, it was thrown last week by Alexander Lebedev, the Evening Standard owner, and attended by celebs such as JK Rowling, Vanessa Redgrave and Boris Johnson. Gorbachev did a live performance of one of the songs, “Old Letters”, and received a standing ovation from the 300-plus guests when finished. “He has got the most wonderful voice,” guest Rachel Giffin told UTV News. “It’s very polished, with a great tone to it. It’s definitely not man-in-the-pub singing. It was completely unexpected.”

While the winning price for Gorbachev’s album of love songs was not revealed, all of the money raised went to the leukemia cancer foundation he started in memory of his wife.
