Eganyan Nonna Varazdati, often called Nona, is a 12-year-old pupil of St. Petersburg GBOU school No. 242. She is the Grand Prix winner of the ‘Melody of Scarlet Sails’ contest, the first prize winner of the ‘ Voices of the 21st Century’, the third place holder of the ‘Generation Next’ contest, finalist of the ‘Voice Kids’ TV project -2016, and many others. She is engaged in gymnastics, loves shopping, and to spend holidays where it is warm and there is the sea! The most important thing for her is to know her family members are healthy and live long happy lives. She values in people, first and foremost, sincerity and faithfulness.
Nona dreams of singing along with Ani Lorak, ‘Because I love her and her songs!.’ Some funny things happen to Nona from time to time, and most often they happen because of her intense emotions. She tells, ‘When performing at the ‘Voice Kids’ contest, I forgot about one small buckle on my dress… and till nowadays, when putting on this dress, I keep forgetting to zip it the right way J.’
Her good luck mascot is an OWL.
In her wardrobe there are mostly classical style clothes in burgundy and dark green, she also likes white dresses and skirts, as well as bright and cheerful colors. There are no subjects she would not like at school. For a birthday present, she would like to get a Teddy bear. Her favorite cartoons are “the Jungle Book,” “Snow White,” “Cinderella,” “the Little Mermaid”, “Braveheart”, “Cold Heart”. She can play the violin and the piano.
Nonna has a talent of mimicking artists-she can sing a song in the style of W. Houston, M. Carey and even E. Piaf. And her idol is S. Gomez. She enjoys watching comedies. But among her favorites are movies of the entirely different genre –‘Harry Potter’, ‘The Lord of the Rings’, ‘Maleficent’. To the question about some fiction characters, she answers that associates herself with Snow White, ‘Because she has dark hair, she is kind and brave J.’ Her favorite holiday is her birthday.
She would be happy to travel around France, remembering to grab a book of A. Pushkin or D. Defoe on her trip. She has music composed by I.Krutoy, W.A. Mozart, l. van Beethoven and Paganini on her favorite playlist. She would travel to anscient Greece by a time machine.
‘I sing since I was five years old. My vocal abilities first were recognized by my mom, she always supports me! I confess that sometimes I have a desire to write a song. Hopefully soon it will happen. As for the title I would select for my new album, I haven’t thought of it yet. I am planning to star soon as Alilia in a movie ‘A Ticket to a Brand New Year’. The screenwriter is Sarah Anson, she is known for her work for ‘Luntik’ film … And now I am participating in the ‘New Wave Junior’. It is e a very important period for me, because I love to sing and act. I am happy I have friends who will be glad to cheer for me. Some are jealous … I am going to sing songs that are like! Of all the finalists of the previous ‘New Wave Junior’ contests, I remember Anastasia Petrik: she sang well, and especially in a duet with Philip Kirkorov! I always wish everyone good luck, and at our contest I wish good luck to all of us as well!’
