...who was once a shy kid playing her songs on an out-of-tune upright piano in Soviet Moscow with neighbors knocking on the wall because it was too loud,
...and whose piano teacher told her not to write anymore,
...who learned English by translating the Beatles songs and whose soul cried with joy when she heard the beautiful melodies of Russian classical and folk music,
...who overcame a lot of adversity and moved all the way to America by herself at 15, leaving everything behind to make her music dreams come true.
