Biography

Russian-born singer/songwriter Marina V is a young and charismatic pop artist with an incredible life story and a “hauntingly beautiful” sound (L.A. Times).

“If the Beatles and Tori Amos had a child raised in Russia by Tchaikovsky, that would be me,” muses the piano-playing chanteuse, describing her musical influences.

Born in Moscow, Marina came to the US on her own at 15 and has since blossomed into an international voice, relentlessly touring & performing at venues such as Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre, the American Embassy in Moscow, and clubs from Paris to Sydney.

She's written songs for films, TV shows and ads, and had her songs appear on games, TV shows and airlines. Her song "You Make Me Beautiful" recently received an award from Sir Bob Geldof in London.

Marina has just completed her new album, MY STAR, sponsored entirely by her fans (having raised almost $30,000 via marinav.com) and produced by the renowned producer, Guy Erez (Gipsy Kings, Ryan Cabrera, etc).

From catchy pop hit sounds of "You Make Me Beautiful" to a surprise cover of Guns 'n Roses smash "Don't Cry", the 10-song album features celebrity guests from bands KISS and Collective Soul, and includes a stunning a cappella performance of a Russian traditional song, Tonkaya Ryabina.

Lyrics

You Make Me Beautiful

Written By: Marina Verenikina/Nick Baker

YOU MAKE ME BEAUTIFUL

I can’t help hearing the lies
I can’t help letting them inside
These words have gotten me low and got me high

You stand and guard at my door
Allowing me to be more than what they say
Allowing me to be strong and live my way

You make me beautiful
Believing in me
You make me beautiful
And deep within I find the best side of myself
I know no one else
Makes me feel beautiful like you

My dreams are never too wild
My words are never laughed off or brushed aside
You make me feel like a star that’s not outshined

You make me beautiful
Believing in me
You make me beautiful
And deep within I find the best side of myself
I know no one else
Makes me feel beautiful like you
