INNA (real name Alexandra) is a 24 year old girl, originating from the Romanian Black Sea Coast. She knew where she was headed very early so she started voice coaching at the tender age of 8.

Soon spreading to Europe, the single received airplay in Russia, Poland, Bulgaria, Serbia, Slovakia, Greece, Belgium, Netherlands. And thus the story kept on going – all her singles “Love”, “Deja-Vu”, “Amazing” or “Sun is Up” become hits and she received only the most prestigious international awards in her area.
