To Infinity with Daria Medovaya
First of all can you introduce yourself? Who is Daria Medovaya?
Daria Medovaya - it's my name, my singer name. Name of the voice that gives truly and deeply emotions to the listeners. Daria Medovaya its an artist, that sings only the truth and nothing else.
When did you start your singing career?
My career started at the same time when i was able to sing, i was almost 5 years old. I don't like the term "career", i prefer my own development and improvement of my professional skills.
Now you are one of the artists that are taking part of the Ukrainian national selection for eurovision, your song its called Infinity, what is the story of this song? what is the song about?
I wrote the music for "Infinity" and Evgeniy Matushenko wrote the english text. When i decided to take a part in the national selection i was looking for the song very powerful and emotional. Ultimately i understood that no one of the composers can't feel the song like i do. So "Infinity" was born. This song is about a ladies feeling, about how we must appreciate every minute of our life. This song is about female strength and patience - if we will wait for love so persistently we will meet One on the crossroads of the life.
The essence of Infinity was very important for me. There was no choice of the song, because Infinity was written specifically for the Eurovision Song Contest. I feel this song, we make it with my friends that are supporting me all the time and this song is ready for the competition. And to be truthful it's the story of my own life.
Talking about songs, i know you have a new song "Цунами Нежность", can you tell us something about it?
"Цунами Нежность" - in Russian and it means "Gentle Tsunami" - is a brand new song. I can't predict the future, because this song is only starting her own way. Of course i heartly believe in this song and it tells about things that are familiar to each girl. It is about a feeling of love that gives sometimes a tsunami of emotions, gentle emotions.
Amazing song, i like it very much.
Now back to the Eurovision. You weren't one of the favorites before the shows but now you are on the top 3 in the internet voting and your song is one of the favorites, how does it feel to know that the people likes your song and your performance?
It's unbelievable! When you are devoted to yourself and did lots of work only to make a good performance and professionals liked it, it's very pleasant. But the most important thing for me is the number of views of my performance on youtube are increasing so much every day. I know that people who listened my song are making the destiny of it.
So there is a rumor that says that there will be 3 semifinals in december, how you prepare for it? do you know when this semifinals will be?
Yes, that's true. All of the participants are devided into 3 groups. I'm in the 1 group. Now I'm a little bit worried about it because i don't like the competition very much :-). On the stage i prefer to feel free atmosphere, sincerity, inspiration, when i'm flying away. Now I do need friends support.
And for the semifinals there will be a new version of Infinity, what can you tell us about it and is there a date to the premiere of the song?
Yes, after the first performance we've had time to make "Infinity" better than before. I just wanna tell that there will be some changes for the sound and i added some instruments. There is no appointed date to the premiere of the song, but the performance recording will be on December 2 or December 3.
Thank you very much. I wanna tell that a new dress will be very beatiful. The embroidery of the dress will be with a National Ukrainian symbols by Anjelika Rudnitskaya, former well known Ukrainian singer and painter. you will see it very soon.
Have you listened the other songs in the competition? do you like someone?
I saw performances of all contestans and of course some of them have chances to win this competition and it will be people solution.
Why the ukrainian people should vote for you to represent them in Eurovision?
I think that every participant are asked for this question and i don't wanna be banal. I think if people had the same feeling once in their life as i did, they can vote for the song 'cause any song is not only text and performance it's first of all artists emotions that singer want to give to the listener. I love the song very much. I love music, love singing, this is my life! and when the people will hear my song and see my performance i believe that they will like it, i want them to believe me. I think that only when it's happening, people will vote for me.
Something you want to say to the Eurovision addicts?
I want to say my heartful thanks to everybody who supports me and listened to my songs, because if there is no fans support there will be no singers and Eurovision as well. Thank you! If anyone want to make friends with me they can simply find me on Twitter, Facebook or Livejournal. Listen to my music and i will try not to disappoint you.
Wish you the best
I really want to say Thank you very much Daria for this wonderful interview and for being so cool and nice with me, i cant wait to listen the new version of Infinity and to see the performance of the semifinal. Good luck in the semifinals and i send you all my positive energy.
Now here is the absolutely beautiful performance of Daria in the first heat of the Ukrainian National Selection, as i said before this performance was great, her voice, her look, her song and her feelings through the song were magical and im sure the next performance will be amazing.
