Natia Todua is a Georgian-born singer with a Cinderella story. Born in Gali — currently in the Russian-occupied territory of Georgia — she sang from an early age but never had any formal music training. As an adult she tried her luck on The X Factor Georgia and The X Factor Ukraine — without much luck. But then, while working as an au pair in Germany, she entered The Voice of Germany…and won it all.
And now Natia is getting back in the singing show game and is making a run for Eurovision 2018. She will sing “My Own Way” at Unser Lied für Lissabon — Germany’s Eurovision 2018 selection. The song comes from Swiss songwriter Ricardo “Richy” Bettiol, Canadian songwriter Martin Gallop, Dutch songwriter Loren Nine Geerts and German songwriter Jaro Omar. Talk about building bridges!
You can listen it on February 20th, but before you do be sure to check out what Natia had to say to our Georgia correspondent Rezo Mamsikashvili on the eve of the competition.
