Early life[edit]

Daneliya Tuleshova was born in 2006 in the capital of Kazakhstan, Astana (now Nur-Sultan)[6] to Elena Tuleshova and Alexander Tuleshov. She has two younger siblings.[7]

After recovering from an injury at the age of four, she began practicing ballroom dancing. She also took contemporary dance classes in Almaty and simultaneously attended acting and singing classes. In late 2018, she was a sixth grader at the school Lyceum 56 where she focused on mathematics.[1] Although Daneliya was born in Nur-Sultan, she said (in an interview with Kazakh video producer Rauana Kokumbaeva that was put on YouTube in February 2019) that her hometown is the city of Almaty.[8]


Career beginnings[edit]

In 2015, Daneliya won the competition and reached the finals of Children's New Wave, where she won the Audience Award.[1]

In January 2017, Tuleshova took part in the international singing competition, Hopes of Europe, where she won the grand prize. Later that same year, she auditioned for season 4 of The Voice Kids Ukraine. During the Blind Auditions, she performed Demi Lovato's song "Stone Cold". All three coaches; Monatik, Natalia Mohylevska and Vremya i Steklo, "turned their chairs" for her; she chose Monatik. After passing all the stages, she made it to the grand final. There, she performed the song "Ne tvoya viyna" and was ultimately announced as the winner of the competition. At the time, she was the first non-Ukrainian to win,[1] but in 2019, Georgian singer Oleksandr Zazarashvyli won the fifth season.[9]

In March 2018, Tuleshova won the Glimpse into the Future Award at the first International Professional Music Premium Bravo Awards in Moscow. After receiving her award, alongside French singer Zaz, she performed "Je veux".[10]
