In the 80's Irina became a constant guest of the mostvarious musical TV shows: "Blue Light", "Song of the Year", "Morning Mail". In 1986, after a lengthy tour in Ponarovskaya's voice, structural changes took place: her "trademark hoarse" appeared. The singer was never able to recover, so she only had to say that she always dreamed of such a timbre.
In 1988, the popularity of Irina Ponarovskaya increasedso much so that the singer finally had the opportunity to give big solo concerts in the concert hall "Russia".
