Louis Armstrong’s Grandson Comes to Russia to Shoot Music Video


The singer and composer Charlie Armstrong, the grandson of the famous trumpeter and singer Louis Armstrong, has visited the Moscow suburb of Voskresensk. The town’s airfield became the scene for a new video of the American musician, the airport’s website reports.

“I had always dreamed of Russia. This country in whose capital you can find people from all corners of the world, has intrigued me since childhood. I am known and appreciated in many places and my songs are sung. So I thought: why not go to Russia?” the musician explained.

Charlie Armstrong writes songs for many Hollywood stars and with many European performers. He also sings himself and is one of the most sought after performers in Monaco, San Tropez and Cannes. In recent years he has been to Moscow several times.

“My new song will be a hit on the Russian charts,” Armstrong confided. “I’m not going to say what it’s called yet, but one of the requirements for shooting the video was an airfield and flying.”
