Ekaterina RyabovaKatya Ryabova was born in Moscow on the fourth of August, 1997 in the small town of Schelkovo not far from the capital. Now she lives with her parents and sister in the Yubileiny town, Moscow region. She has been singing since she was very little when she asked her parents to send her to musical school.
At the moment she studies in the sixth grade of general gymnasium, and she is also engaged in a vaudeville in the Children's Theatre of Song SvetAfor, and she gets lessons in choreography in the studio of classic ballet Fairy-tale (yes, the same name as the winner of this year's Eurovision Song Contest by Alexander Rybak!).
Katya Ryabova is a winner of the Governor's award, owner of a diploma of the second World Delphic games for musicians and artists.
She is a laureate of international festival A Rose Of Wings 2007, and also a laureate of the competition of patriotic songs What Motherland Is To Begin With, at which she performs the famous song Arlekino.
Katya likes to sing, dance, play the piano, play on the computer, travel, collect stickers, educate a younger sister and do the hair to the terrier Terry. Favorite Kate’s artists are Dima Bilan, Serebro (both are former Russian representatives at the Eurovision Song contest), Gwen Stefani, Christina Aguilera. Katya also likes folk music, but in modern arrangement.
Katya’s favorite quotation: "Only one thing makes our dream impossible- it is a fear of failure" (from The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho).
A young singer is allegedly worried before any concert. But when she steps on stage these worries are carried away at once. Katya is sure that the reaction of the hall helps her to cope with worries.
