Gio khutsishvili was born on July 17, 1962. He was a distinguished performer and writer

In one of the last interviews before his death (www.Fortuna.ge), he tells Georgians about his life, career and formula for success. The artist’s concerts were attended by both young and old generation. He was always interested in new projects and paid great attention to renovation and youth involvement. To the singer, the major virtue of an artist was his/her manner of performing. That is why he advised young artists to be original and never to try copying others. He thought young generation stands out by their delicate taste, original voices and interesting ways of performing.

“Everyone has problems – I am fighting now and I am certain I can cope with it”, - said the artist about his health problems. He was motivated by thinking about performing songs and the love expressed by Georgian citizens. He was grateful to everyone who worried about his health and wished him a quick recovery. “After seeing so many people who stand by me, I realize I do not have the right to feel bad” – said Gio khutishvili .

Georgian artists along with unfamiliar people to the artist offered financial and moral help but he preferred to take part in charity concerts for others. He said that the health problem showed him the importance and value of solidarity among people. It made the artist look at people from the perspective that he had never thought about. He was happy to move on and give back the love to everyone by his work.

One of his most famous duet titled as “when almond blossoms” was with Nato Gelashvili. “I do not love songs with limits. I loved him because of his great sense of humor. Gio had no limits. He managed to make Georgians fall in love with him and his work.” – says Nato Gelashvili.
