The Russian entry is called “A Million Voices” and should empowering people to work for a better future. The video clip is lovely made, with many happy faces of children and elderly people. The beautiful voice of Polina is very suitable to this melody.
This year’s Russian singer Polina Sergejewna Gagarina was born in Moscow, Russia (former Soviet Union) in 1987. Her first years she spend in Greece with her family, that’s why Polina fluently speaks Greek. She went to a music school and graduated from State Music School of Popular & Jazz Art and MKhAT Theatre School. In the age of 16 Polina could win the casting show „Fabrika Zvyozd“. By now she released two albums and several singles which placed well in the charts, not only in Russia. She is working on her third album. Above that she received many awards. She’s is married with the famous photographer Dmitry Iskhakov and has a 7 years old son. She is celebrated as new shining star in Russia.
The Russian entry is called “A Million Voices” and should empowering people to work for a better future. The video clip is lovely made, with many happy faces of children and elderly people. The beautiful voice of Polina is very suitable to this melody. The song has been composed by the same international team as two years ago, when Dina Garipova made a 5th place in Malmö with “What If”. It will be hard for the juries and TV spectators to judge this entry in a fair way. As the message of the song is full of love and peace, unfortunately, this is not what comes to people’s mind when they think of Russia these days.

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
