Aliona Moon - O Mie (Moldova) 2013 Eurovision Song Contest Official Preview Video

Posted 3 May, 2013, 23:36

Powered by: http://www.eurovision.tv Aliona Moon will represent Moldova at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest with the song O Mie. Aliona Moon is a rising star in the Moldovan music scene. She has already participated in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest as a backing musician of Pasha Parfeny. Now the two artists have changed places, and Aliona will be the lead vocalist of this year's Eurovision entry, the touching ballad O Mie. Aliona Munteanu was born on the 25th of May 1989 in Chisinau. Ethnical Moldavian songs and lullabies sung by her mother cultivated Aliona's love for music. Since her childhood Aliona was a member of lots of artistic collectives, where she performed both music and dances. As their member, Aliona participated at different contests in Hungary, Belarus, France, Romania, Bulgaria and of course in her motherland Moldova. Later she was involved in the talent show Fabrica de Staruri 2 (Star Factory) where she gained the third place and the title of the public's favourite. With two of her ex-colleagues from Star Factory Aliona formed the pop band Thumbs Up. The band existed for two years until the break-up in 2011. After that, Aliona took some trophies at international musical festivals as a solo artist, most notably at the "Martisor Dorohoian" and "Dan Spataru" festivals, which were held in Romania. Aliona considered it a great experience to be Pasha Parfeny's backing vocalist for Lautar in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest. It encouraged and determined Aliona to participate in Moldovan national selection for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest as a lead artist. Aliona's talent and luck earned her the honour and right to represent Moldova in Malmö this year. Her song O Mie was written by Pasha Parfeny, who is also Aliona's producer.
