|Singer||: Zlata Ognevich|
Zlata Ognevich is a very beloved celebrity in Ukraine. She is no stranger in the Eurovision Song Contest. Her first attempt was in 2010 where she finished fifth in the Ukrainian national final. Last year, Zlata took part in the Ukrainian national selection with her unique entry The Kukushka but came second. This year, Zlata Ognevich will have the honour to sing for her country in Malmö. She is looking forward to new experiences, new acquaintances, new emotions and feelings!
Zlata Ognevich was born in the city of Murmansk located in the extreme northwest part of Russia. Her father is a military doctor serving on submarine. Mother is a philologist, teacher of Russian language and literature.
Zlata’s life sharply changed when the family moved to Ukraine, a picturesque city of Crimean’s peninsula Sudak where the fresh marine breeze always walks by the walls of the grand Genoese fortress in the cosy bay. Since then two passions appeared in Zlata’s life - the mountains and the sea. And a little bit later the third one - music.
