“Songs by Krzysztof Krawczyk” – is a special Internet channel launched by Polish Radio, which presents an overview of the recordings of Krzysztof Krawczyk, who died on Monday.
For almost six decades, the artist won the hearts of fans.
One of the most famous Polish singers, Krzysztof Krawczyk, died on Monday, in the hospital, which he went to after collapsing. He had previously been treated for Covid-19 and was released home on Saturday before Easter. He was 74 years old.
– We present the listeners with songs from different periods of creativity. We focus mainly on a solo career, as well as performances in the band Trubadurzy – said Piotr Wawrowski from Polish Radio.
He emphasized that “there are few artists in Poland who can boast of such a number of hits, recorded in a very diverse style, but always up-to-date, using contemporary sounds and trends in their own unique way”.
– Krzysztof Krawczyk is a total singer – charming and inspiring the imagination of Polish Elvis Presley, male and determined like Frank Sinatra, joyful and energetic like Tom Jones. Despite many difficult moments in his private life, he always came back stronger and surprised us with his next hits, to which we will come back for many years to come – he assessed.
In the years 1963-73 and 1976 Krawczyk was the vocalist of the band Trubadurzy, and from 1973 a solo artist. He promoted many famous hits, including: “Steamship”, “I wanted to be”, “What the world has given us”, “My friend”, “It’s hard”, “Because you are.” Its popularity is determined by numerous concert tours in Europe and around the world, as well as many awards and distinctions.
In 2000, he sang in front of the Holy Father in St. Peter during the National Pilgrimage and gave John Paul II a Golden Record with the recording “Let us sing to the Holy Father”. According to a survey conducted by OBOP, he was the most popular Polish singer at the time.
