The Water of Life Project was created specifically for the 2016 Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2016. The song, Water of Life, was written by lead vocalist Sofia Fisenko in collaboration with Rita Dakota.

The Russian entry in the 2016 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Water of Life, describes what is happening in the souls of teenagers as they get older. It is a metaphorical comparison of a child's voice, filled with light and pure love to the world. Alongside lead vocalist Sofia, Sasha and sisters Christina and Madonna also form the Water of Life Project.

From the early childhood Sofia Fisenko practiced choreography although she prefers singing to dancing. When Sofia was six she started studying music and she continues to do so at the Popular Music Academy of Igor Krutoy and also learns to play the flute. Sofia's dream is to become successful in her future career. She wants to become the leader of a large charitable foundation, help children or become a professional journalist.
