I was born in Vari (Ukraine) in 1992. When I was 4, my family moved to Hungary. We lived in a very small town, where life and growing up was far from simple or easy. Both my parents worked hard for my brother and I. My mother worked in the city orphanage where I often had to help her. When I was child, I had a dream: "I would like to be a famous singer". That's why I started to sing and dance at an early age. There was a lot of difficulty because my home is in a small town, and there were not to many options. I had to struggle hard for everything, but I would not give up my dream to become an artist!
About 5 years ago, I met with Eric Morph, who is a music producer and songwriter. He helped me in the beginning and I started to take voice lessons. After a lot of education, in January of 2010 my first piece of music was written by Eric, myself and our team, which was then expanded by the addition of Pixa (The #1 Hungarian Producer). After producing my first single and music video for the song "Plastic Girl", it was uploaded to the webpage of Akon’s Hitlab. To my surprise, I received an e-mail from them, requesting that we should come to Montreal and meet with them. But nothing is simple and the road ahead was still full of hardship, especially since I had to face the fact that my English was not good enough, and moreover, I was nervous about a performance at the Montreal World Film Festival -- This was my first show! I was very excited and needlesstosay, the show was a complete success. I really enjoyed being on stage and performing.
