“When they wanted to make me sit in the police car, some of the girls pretended to faint, some of them even laid under the wheels of the police car to distract the attention or not to let them take me, but anyway they took me away,” Albert recalls with humor his arrest during the days of revolution. He tells that during the revolution he had received 1.500 friend requests on Facebook, 1.000 out of them were girls.
On the morning of April 23, he had already recorded the song "Qayl ara" and he was going to perform it in the square, and his performance coincided with the news of Serzh Sargsyan’s resignation: “We were in the square, I have never seen so many happy faces. Residences of Gyumri had witnessed an earthquake (1988, with 25000 victims), their faces are always concerned and sad.”
Albert had not been that famous before the revolution, some people knew him as a musician. Now he is one of the heroes of the “velvet revolution”. He says that after the revolution when people meet him on the streets they say: “It’s Abo, that guy.”
