A crowd went to Kokkinohori Kavala for the last "farewell" to Vasilis Karras.

Among them was Despina Vandi, accompanied by her partner, Vasilis Bisbikis. The singer could not hold back her tears over the loss of the great folk performer who passed away at the age of 70, defeated by cancer.

Dressed in black and wearing black glasses, Vandi mourned the death of Karras at his funeral on her way out of the church.

When she was informed of the death of Vasilis Karras, Despina Vandi posted on Instagram a photo of them together and in the caption, she wrote:

"With how much joy today began and how much sadness it was filled with... I can't put my thoughts in order... Next to him, I started my journey in music. Next to him, during the period when he began to be loved by all of Greece, I was learning the scene at night and its wrapping and, at the same time, reading in the dressing rooms trying to get my degree. He tricked me in a way. Made me think the music world is full of Kings!

"Over the years, I understood his uniqueness, and I am not referring to his voice nor his songs. Vasilis, this man with this displacement that he had, who was worshipped like a rock star, the one who started with 'good evening and good night' and was adored by everyone, had an almost childlike innocence that preserved all these years...Generous, with a disarming simplicity, true and with much love for all, he only cared about the stage and what happened on it. A rare man... He lives in my heart, and I am grateful to him for what he taught me consciously and unconsciously...

"Vasili..."
