Mariam for Georgia!
Mariam Mamadashvili will sing for Georgia this year in Malta! She is 10 years old and a member of Bzikebi Studio. She was chosen by a jury comprising of Rusudan Bakhtadze (Vocal), Nato Dumbadze (producer), Zaza orashvili (Director), Nick Kocharov (singer) & JESC’s Lizi Pop. The final two were Mariam and Luke Kacharvan but Mariam won overall. She actually attended JESC in Malta as part of the Georgian delegation so she will know what to expect. The song will be written by regular Georgian composer Giga Kukhianidze, therefore despite having a national final this year, in the end the team remains the same.
Mariam has been singing since she was 4, first at studio Basti Bubu (responsible for JESC 2009 the Princesses), then at Bzikebi Studio. She also plays the piano and has acted in ‘Anna and I’. Last year she moved to the USA and atends Tomlinson Middle School and the Broadway Method Academy music school.
