One of the most hardworking, smart and positive personalities of Armenian Music Industry and Television, Aram Mp3 will be presenting Armenia in Copenhagen at Eurovision Song Contest. Being famous for the ability to sing songs of a wide vocal diapason and having a good sense of humour, Aram is also known as a person of contrasts and surprises. When he appears on stage one doesn't know what to expect – a unique live concert or a good comedy show.
Despite spending most of his time on stage and pretty tough schedule, he considers himself a family man feeling very much attached to his charming wife Anna and charismatic son Arno. Appearance on different national TV channels, regular club concerts and acting in various humorous performances, made Aram a well known singer-songwriter, musical comedian and showman. The main streets of Yerevan are glowing with his posters and he is often approached by fans outside, still Aram doesn't consider himself a celebrity and somehow managed to stay extremely modest and open to wide public.
Music healed him
Aram Sargsyan was born in Yerevan, on April 5, 1984 and from early age he engaged in an extraordinary life changing affair with the music. At school age Aram had breathing difficulties and was coughing a lot. Following doctors’ strange advice to try singing, Aram’s parents took him to the choir classes. Unexpectedly it worked and music healed him! The treatment also helped him to discover a further path in his life. Since that age music became Aram’s passion and soon he got actively involved in school humorous and musical performances.
Though always dreaming about big stage, Aram chose a profession of pharmacist, graduating the State Medical University of RA. Active involvement in student musical and comedy contests took him on various tours both in and out of Armenia. Getting back home, he was invited to take part in “32 teeth” TV Show, where he did musical stand ups and parodies of famous singers. As singing and music were in his nature, during one of the shows the anchor introduced him as Aram Mp3 to emphasise his particular role in the shows. Since that moment he got his stage nickname.
Outstanding and award-winning
The same year, 2007, he became the winner of the most popular TV Show of The First Channel of Armenia, “2 stars”. Going deeper into the music industry and professionally developing his singing talent, Aram Mp3 started series of live jazz and blues concerts in the clubs of Yerevan, along with recording singles and releasing music videos.
Being noticed for the outstanding and quick success in his career, he was invited to host famous TV Formats such as “X- Factor”, “Armenian Idol”, “My name is”, and “Power of 10”, which brought him more fame. Currently he is a member of the most popular “Vitamin Club” project, a comedy show broadcast weekly on Shant TV. Every month Aram gives live concerts with bands in popular music halls of Yerevan singing his own singles and also unique covers of famous hits.
On January the 1st Armenian Public Television internally selected Aram Mp3 to represent Armenia on the 6th of May in the First Semi-final of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Not Alone written by Aram Mp3 and lyricist Garik Papoyan, instrumental arrangement by Lilit Navasardyan.
