Solomia Lukyanets

Solomia Lukyanets is a 14 years old Ukrainian opera singer. She was born on April 24, 2001 in Kiev, where she lived her early childhood. Solomia currently lives in Berlin, Germany.

Solomia has claimed a lot of titles and won many competitions but she is mostly famous through her participation in The Voice Kids in its Ukrainian and German editions.

Despite her participation in The Voice Kids Germany not being her biggest career achievement in terms of titles and rankings (i.e. not making it to the semi finals); it is, in my personal opinion, the greatest stage (so far) of her very successful and very promising career.
