Google honors Chalyapin

Google honors Chalyapin

Google has posted a logo on its home page in honor of Fyodor Chalyapin. The Internet giant is doing so in honor of the 140th birth anniversary of the famous Russian opera singer.

The traditional Google icon on the main page of the search engine has been replaced with an image of the musician against the backdrop of well-known theater buildings where he performed.

Google has previously hosted festive logos in honor of outstanding Russian cultural figures, for example, the famous ballerina Anna Pavlova and actors Faina Ranevskaya and Yuri Nikulin.
