Hometown: Abovyan, Armenia.
Artist of The Week is Lusine Aghabekyan – LUCY to her fans. Lucy is a young pop singer from Armenia with a fine musical education and a solid record of success in her home country and abroad. And she has a lot of fans. Her fans basically left the other contestants in the dust in last week’s Featured Artist Contest!
Lucy started studying music at the age of 9 when she attended vocal classes in a music studio in her hometown Abovyan, and later attending the Yerevan college of pop and jazz art and the Komitas State Conservatory.
In 2007 she participated in the second season of the TV show Hay Superstar (Pop Idol) and won first place. Later in 2007, in Ukraine, she won second place in the international contest The song of the sea. One year later, in 2008, Lucy took part in another international contest – The Golden Voice in Moldova – and again won first place. The same year Armenian Radio Van made her Best New Artist at their Voske Qnar Awards.
She released her first and only album Achqeris Khorqum (Deep in My Eyes) in 2009. At the beginning of 2015 her song Turn Around won Best Song of December 2014 during the Van Music Awards.
Lucy has already performed on multiple stages in Armenia and worldwide and evidently won many hearts. It is breathtaking how much love, pride and affection her fans show her in the comments… well done Lucy!
