This year, the Russian broadcaster Channel One has made their choice for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest internally and selected a young talented singer Dina Garipova. On stage in Malmö, Dina will perform the song What If that was composed by two Swedish producers Gabriel Alares, Joakim Bjornberg in cooperation with the Russian rock-pop musician Leonid Gutkin.
Dina Garipova became very popular in Russia after her victory in the reality talent show The Voice 2012. “The singer’s choice was obvious and quite logical, - said the Channel One Russia music director Yurij Aksyuta. “We have chosen Dina internally but actually it was a public choice. The Russian TV viewers voted for the winner of The Voice and Dina alone got nearly one million of votes.”
Dina is originally from the Republic of Tatarstan. She started singing with the age of six. The artist performs pop and rock songs in Tatar, Russian, French, English and Italian. Dina's idol is Whitney Houston.
