Tanya came to Kyiv to show her 11 years old daughter Ukrainian capital. They will be back at home in two days.
“Nina, my daughter, sings very well. And while I wanted to show her all the beautiful places of Kyiv she wanted to be here, on Khreschatyk, simply to take a look on it. She is not going to sing. She is very shy. But I think is simply too young”, - says Tanya.
For Ukrainians this program is part of the history. It is very live. And what`s interesting is in the finale people can get a really good presents, like TV`s or cars. So it makes young and old singers to strive to sing better and work harder to become real winners
