Global Web Phenomenon-Ukraine Got Talent Finalist, Gennady Tkachenko-Papiz Joins the 4th G.O.D. Awards
Global sensation Gennady Tkanchenko-Papiz is one of kind performer, with unbelievable talent in sound imitation of nature, birds and just about anything using his mouth, nose and his remarkable voice. This jaw-dropping performer who is also an actor, comedian and singer will be joining the list of world class entertainers of the 4th Global Officials of Dignity Awards (G.O.D. Awards) to be held at the Delegates Dining Room, United Nations Headquarters in New York on August 17-19, 2016.
In his recent interview by The New York Times, Gennady mentioned “an Asian princess has asked me about performing for her charity, and she is talking with my wife about it.” Indeed, Princess Maria Amor from the Royal House of Baloi in the Philippines and the founder and president of We Care for Humanity, had asked Mr. Tkachencko-Papiz to perform for the upcoming fundraiser in New York. "When I saw one of his performances on Youtube, I was blown-away! I knew I had to talk to him. At first I was hesitant, with his caliber, being an international web fascination, winning awards left and right and his videos getting millions of hits, he is destined for global stardom! But having a genuine intention in me to incorporate his amazing talent with charity, which I knew would do magic for both him and my organization, it motivated me to negotiate with him, and the result: we are looking at the best GOD Awards show ever!", excitedly said by the princess. Hypnotized, she said in addition, "I promised you, you will be in trance when you hear his music.. It's not just his ability to create sounds but the genius of his composition in every performance, truly breathtaking"!
Gennady told The New York Times, “A lot of people say they don’t need a drug anymore, that this is an alternative, my sounds get them to a state where they are much more under the influence than drugs. I don’t know if it is true, but they tell me this.”
Here are some of Gennady's performances at the Ukraine Got Talent where he won as one of the finalists. Some are from Georgia Got Talent and in other awards.
