Thirteen year old Alexander Minyonok is representing Belarus at 2016 Junior Eurovision Song Contest with the song Musyka moih pobed (Music is my only way).
Alexander, who is also called Sasha, started singing professionally when he was eight. He is an artist of Belarusian dance band Sensation and a student of the Russian Academy of Popular Music of Igor Krutoy. The young artist literally grew up behind the stage of well-known Belarusian festival "Slavic Bazaar", where his mother worked. From early childhood he followed famous artists, including Eurovision stars, and took part in many competitions in Belarus.
Alexander started singing solo in 2011. Since then he has performed a variety of musical styles, he dances, presents TV shows and also acts in films. He plays both the piano and the accordion and plans to learn how to play the drums in future.
Sasha dreams of singing with Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake. He is also a big fan of Justin Bieber and plans one day to perform in New York City's famous Madison Square Garden. He believes that apart from the vocal skills, the main thing for a true artist is his charisma, kindness and intentions to give positive energy to audience.
In his spare time loves hoverboarding, skateboarding, rollerblading, skating, cycling, snowboarding in winter, and of course playing football with friends. Alexander also enjoys nature and watching films.
Sasha will perform at Junior Eurovision with his friends from the dance band Sensation; Karyna, Valeriya, Vlad and Kiryl.
