A few words about Victoria
Victoria Georgieva, born 21 September 1997, is a Bulgarian singer and songwriter who was part from 4th season of Bulgarian X Factor. She was called the sensation of the 4th season and the Bulgarian Adele.
Victoria started singing at age of eleven. After some time she enrolled in vocal studio “Angel Voices” where her music teacher was Atanaska Lipcheva. Vicky by herself attended to first 3 seasons of X Factor Bulgaria, but she never made it through the judges, mostly because of her age.
In 2015, after 3 attempts she finally made it through the judges and performed perfectly. She also had no problem to make it to the finals of the show and finally to perform on a big scene. She left the show on week 9. Even though she didn’t win X Factor, she got an offer to join Virginia Records, but declined it. In 2016 she joined Monte Music and on 10 June 2016 her first single was released. “Nishto Sluchayno” was directed by Bashmotion and featured VenZy and Niki Bakalov.
In June 2019 she released her latest single entitled “ I wanna Know” which you can listen to in the following video:
