Anastasia Oleksiyivna Kamenskykh (Ukrainian: Анастасі́я Олексі́ївна Каме́нських, Russian: Анастасия Алексеевна Каменских), better known as Nastya Kamenskykh (Ukrainian: Hастя Каме́нських), (born in Kiev, Ukraine, May 4, 1987) is a Ukrainian singer.[1]

Her father is Jewish and her mother is a Ukrainian who converted to Judaism. She began her education in France at the age of five. Then for seven years Kamenskykh lived in Italy. She continued studying at the Pechersk School International in Kiev, and at a music school. Kamenskykh graduated from music school at the age of 15 and started taking professional ballet classes. She did ballet for 8 years. Kamenskykh also was a student at the Ukrainian-American Humanitarian Institute.[2]

Her first step as professional singer was the festival in 2004 "Chornomorski Igry" or "Black Sea Games". In 2005 she took part in a singing competition in London. She got the "UBN Award". Now she works with producer center "Music-Motors". She usually sings on stage with fellow Ukrainian singer, producer, and composer Potap.

Outside of Ukraine she has been in popular Russian TV programs such as Dve Zvezdy (Two Stars), and has had popular singles such as "Ne para" (Not a Pair),[3] "Hutoryanka" (Farm Girl), and "Bez Lyubvi" (Without Love).

In 2014, Kamenskykh and Potap were criticized in Ukraine for continuing to attend award ceremonies in Russia, which had started an aggression against Ukraine.[4] On this they responded: "It's a shame that we have to collect the journalists to tell that we are from Ukraine and love our country!"[5] In 2016 "Potap and Nastya" concerts were disrupted in Ukraine in protest of them continuing to tour in Russia.[6]

Dancing with the Stars[edit]

In 2009, Nastya took part in the Ukrainian version of the popular show Dancing with the Stars. She was paired with Dmitriy Digusar (Irina Bilyk's husband), but on April 4 the pair did not dance in the competition as scheduled. The cause of failure to appear was not disclosed.
