Eugenia Vlasova was born in Kiev, Ukraine. Both of her parents had significant artistic background (mother was a movie actress but abandoned the carrier after giving birth to her daughter, father is still a singer with the Chapel named after Levko Revutskiy). However Eugenia did not spend much time in her father's environment (that was the way their family life went) and believes that it was her step-father who brought her up and who gave her some of her warmest memories. As a broad-minded person he used to spend hours and hours in cognitive conversations with Eugenia. Thus it is him who she owes her character, inquisitiveness and persistence to and who has really replaced her father.
Her strong, bright and distinctive voice along with her love for music were the key factors in her further destiny. In 1994 she entered the R. Glier State Higher Music College majoring in variety vocal and successfully completed it in 1998. While on her second year she started taking part in various music contests and in 1996 eventually became a prize-winner of the Song Vernissage. Even now, looking back at her first appearance at the Ukraina Palace of Culture, she is still anxious: my knees were shivering, I was scared to death and could hardly keep myself from running away. But in the end the debut took place and provided Ukraine with a new rising star.
Eugenia?s performance at the Slavyanskiy Bazaar festival in Vitebsk, Belarus, where she achieved a laureate status turned to be an important stage in her carrier. There were two songs sung: Sizokryliy ptakh (Gray-winged bird) penned by Vladimir Ivasyuk and Ne zabuvay (Don't forget) which may be considered as her first noticeable hit. Then, in November, 1998, followed a trip to the Italian city of Rimini, a home of the 1998 Queen of the Song international song contest. Especially for that occasion Kim Breitburg and Nikolay Trubach had written a number called Vyberi menya (Choose me) but according to the contest's regulations each and every artist was supposed to sing in the language of his or her home country therefore a Ukrainian version of the song was made. Retitled Muzyka dusha moya (Music is my soul) it ensured Eugenia Vlasova the unconditional victory. Despite the fearful date, Friday, 13th, Eugenia left Italy collecting the Grand Prix as a trophy.
Only time will tell what will follow. Just stay tuned for the new songs and be faithful to your sympathies!
