Nyusha family is not new to show business. Both her parents were musicians: her father performed with the popular group "Laskovyy may", and her mother was a part of a rock band. This inspired little Anna to start singing, and she took vocal lessons from a young age.
When she was only five years old, her parents took her to the recording studio, where she got a chance to sing "The song of the big female bear". This made her so emotional that she started singing everywhere, and eventually, her father bought her a piano and hired music tutors for her.
Her first song was called "Night" and was recorded when she was only 8 years old. When she was 9, she was a part of the children's theatre "Margaritki", which she eventually left. Two years later, she joined the group "Grizli", which toured in Russia and Germany. At the age of 12, she performed her first song flawlessly at the concert in Cologne.
She participated in the audition for "Star Factory" when she was 14, but did not advance because of her young age. However, when she was 17, she auditioned for the show "STS sparks superstars", where she successfully advanced and later won. This was also when she came up with her stage name Nyusha.
Her career skyrocketed when she participated in the international contest "New Wave" and recorded the main character's song from the movie "Enchanted". In 2009, she released her debut single "Voyu na lunu", which she confirmed to be a breakup song. This composition instantly became popular and brought her fame, as well as awards and nominations.
In 2010, the young singer released her first album "Vybirat chudo" ("Choose your miracle"). Even though it had mixed reviews, it made her an established performer on the Russian pop music stage.
2011 was a successful year for the musician, as she released singles "Vyshe" and "Bolno". For her work, she was nominated for the Muz-TV awards in two categories: "Best singer" and "Best album". She did not win either of them, but she gained an impressive victory at the MTV EMA 2011 awards show, becoming the "Best Russian artist". The Billboard Russia magazine named her as one of the 20 main music events of the year. Additionally, the Afisha magazine named the song "Vybirat chudo" as the song of the year and "Bolno" as the catchiest pop song of two last decades.
