This year Ukraine is going to overwhelm Europe with one of the strongest and beautiful voices - Mariya Yaremchuk. On December 21st, 2013 Mariya won the Ukrainian national selection and thus she will represent her country with her own lush and intense song Tick-Tock in Copenhagen.

The music of Tick-Tock has been composed by Mariya herself. She is also one of the co-writers of the lyrics. Mariya and her choreographer’s team are working hard on the stage performance to make it soulful and simple.

Mariya Yaremchuk was born on March 2nd, 1993 in Chernivtsi into a musicians’ family. Her father, Nazariy Yaremchuk, is a true Ukrainian legend,who died when Maria was only two years old.

Her whole life Mariya was surrounded by music, so it wasn’t a surprise for anyone when Mariya took a stage for a first time at the age of six. In 2009 she entered the Variety Vocal Department of the Kyiv Circus and Variety Arts Academy and simultaneously the History, Politology and Foreign Relations Department of the Chernivtsi National University. In 2013 she had graduated with honour and got the bachelor’s degrees in both specialisations. Mariya continues her studies for the master’s degrees.

In 2012 Mariya Yaremchuk participated in the Ukrainian version of The Voice, a famous global TV format for the best vocalists where she reached the fourth place.

In the same year, Mariya represented Ukraine at the New Wave, the international music festival. She finished in top three and won the audience choice award.

Her style and femininity idol is Monica Bellucci. In the music world, Mariya gives the nod to Madonna’s energy and Maroon 5 leader Adam Levine’s voice and sexuality. But all admiration still belongs to Mariya’s true inspiration – her father.

Lyrics of Tick - Tock

I believe that I've loved you Since the first time that I saw you Bells rang angels sang When the light of the night fell on us we knew Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh We both knew that you were mine Now cover me, I'll buy us time, time oh oh oh oh oh oh oh *2 Oh wait for me I'm worth your while Tick-tock, can you hear me go tick tock My heart is like a clock, I'm steady like a rock Sch don't stop, kiss and kiss me till I drop My heart is like a clock you wind it with your love You wind and wind, it with your love Now I know it's too hard to go tick tock without the glimpse of you If you cave in I break I keep losing my pace In this endless race Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh They all know that you're mine They can see we belong Shelter me, you'll do fine Wait for me, I'll buy us time Tick-tock, can you hear me go tick tock My heart is like a clock, I'm steady like a rock Sch don't stop, kiss and kiss me till I drop My heart is like a clock, you wind it with your love
