No one in the family Lima Vajkule had no relationship to the world of art - her father was a worker, his mother worked as a vendor, and then became a store manager. Apparently, the love of singing girl had inherited from her grandmother, who sang in the church choir. Lyme good singing since childhood, family concerts arranged for the guests, and in 12 years, first came on the scene. Then she participated in the contest of young singers in the House of Culture of the Riga VEF factory, and then began to perform with musical group. However, at the time of her career, she has never thought seriously and after the 8th grade went to medical school. However, Lima continued to be engaged in singing and in 15 years became a soloist of the orchestra of the Riga radio and television, the head of which was Raimonds Pauls. And since 1979, he began performing on the stage of a variety show.
Medicom Lyme Vajkule did not become - in 1984 she entered GITIS on the director's office. she later said many times that if I had not become an actress, just would have been a doctor, "I always wanted to become a doctor. Surgeon. I'm still the best of friends - doctors. There is a calling and a destiny. And my life - a vivid example. My childhood is nothing but medicine was not interested. My vocation - to treat people. But fate would have it, I became a singer. "
During his studies in GITIS on her vocal skills drew the attention of songwriter Ilya Reznik and invited her to perform his song "Night bonfire." This song will soon hit the television and radio. In 1985, the actress made her debut on the Central TV, performing in "New Year's spark". And in 1986, about the singer Lima Vajkule learned the entire Soviet Union after the Soviet-Italian concert of pop stars, she performed the song "Vernissage". the whole country was singing her hit one year later - "Not tonight." For his entire musical career, she released 10 albums in Latvia and Russia, its wheels have sold 20 million.
In 1991, at the peak of popularity she had to endure severe shocks: the singer discovered breast cancer. Lyme Vajkule admitted that was then on the verge of death. The disease made her reconsider views on life and change priorities. After a course of treatment in the US singer managed to beat the disease and return to normal life. Cope with the difficulties and begin to live again helped her husband, producer Andrew Latkovsky with whom they live together since 1978. Then he told her of his readiness to die with her, when suddenly not be able to defeat the disease: "We'll get in the car , acceleration and vedem the wall. " In America Lima met with his father Victor, who advised her to go through the rite of baptism. Since then, according to the singer's admission, her life changed: "Before, I did not understand the meaning of words of the wise about the suffering in which a person grows and develops. And only through what happened to me, I became a different look at life and turned to religion. "
Lyme Vajkule known not only as a singer but also as an active defender of animal rights, which often takes part in various promotions. It has long been abandoned meat and fur products for ethical reasons. The singer is very fond of dogs, and often talks about their pets - two bulldogs. The actress starred in the film antiohotnichem, and later became a member of the jury of the world famous antimehovogo contest "Design against fur."
Recently Lyme Vajkule shocked the public, admitting that at some time in his youth suffering from drug addiction: "It was a youthful time, when he wanted it all. Then I had not been in the entertainment business. I just walked away from her mother's skirt and began to be affected by the street. Fortunately, I have not developed a strong relationship. I feel sorry for those guys who have been unable to get rid of it. "
Many people are surprised how the singer manages to lifelong stay in such great shape - and as an adult she still looks stylish, subtly and effectively. Numerous compliments she replies: "Today may look bad just lazy." Many Vajkule impression of the Iron Lady, and she often asked whether she considers herself strong. Singer replied: "We are all strong men, while in front of us did not close the door and we were left alone with him ...".
However, her courage really to be envied - it has always been so devoted to the profession, that the audience had no idea about her health problems. At one of the concerts in an accident, she received a closed fracture of the hand - Nikolay Baskov picked her up, stumbled and dropped. With severe pain, she continued to speak, and only after the concert she was taken to the hospital. Another time, during a concert in Odessa singer electric shock. She miraculously stay on his feet and not fall off the stage, and the audience did not even know what had happened. Later Lyme says, "I was later told that it was a wild spasm. I've bitten through tongue and cheek. My heart was too strong. There was a spasm of the muscles of this shock. While I walked, I felt better. Microphone wrapped with tape - it turned out that he missed it current. Recovering, I continued to sing. "
The actress never complains about the difficulties, but, nevertheless, it does not consider itself a cheerful optimist: "Actually, I am not the gay man, I am more of a" weeping willow ". Report this life, complain to the vest - yes, it's me, I listen to everyone. A sparkle and laugh ... ". The only thing is now sparing no artist - that she has no children. In her youth she did 2 abortion and experienced miscarriage, after which it could not become a mother. She later regretted his choice of career and the birth of a child, but with humility to accept the fact of their childlessness, "This is not my destiny."
She, too, has its own fears - the most Lyme afraid of old age and helplessness. In 2013, in an interview, the singer admitted: "Helpless old age for an artist - the worst thing that can be. And all this because of the public. Fans want to see their idol forever young. I think, when I begin to grow decrepit, do as Marlene Dietrich. I lock the house. So that no one I have not seen the old and feeble. "
His birthday Lyme Vajkule celebrates 18 years - said that did not do anything so significant in life, to hold celebrations in honor of this date. Therefore, on my birthday, she usually just called my mother and thanked her for her life presented. Nevertheless, the day of her 65th anniversary of the actress would like to congratulate on his birthday and wish her many more years to delight the audience with their creativity and flourishing appearance.
