Need to Meet: Elizaveta Video
The "popera" singer, whose debut album Beatrix Runs was just released, is a melting pot of old and new when it comes to music and her sense of style.
Hi, this is Elizaveta and you're watching Marieclaire.com.
Leave your fear of love behind. Let your dreaming be your guide.
I was actually born in New York, in Manhattan. And I was grown up in Moscow, Russia. I spent a little bit of time in Europe and then I came back to pursue music career in United States. Opera, classical music but also pop, electronica, maybe a little bit of world here and there. And so throw it all in the same pot and stir it up and-- but primarily, I'm a song writer, so it's always about the songs. It's basically doing what's right for the songs but also using all these different elements that I am passionate about. I can wiggle my ears, but I can't when I'm laughing. So-- I've always loved Audrey Hepburn, I would say. Just her ability to make everything she wore look elegant and you know not forced. It's kind of 19th century mixed 21st and I like to take elements of the old world and bring them into the now. Yeah, I'll take Sting. We could do yoga sessions [unknown] do it. I would say I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston [unknown]. And I will always love you, will always love you.
