Teodora Sava (Romanian pronunciation: [te.oˈdora ˈsava], born November 27, 2001, Piatra Neamț) is a singer, Antena 1 (Romania) television channel star, and former contestant in the international music talent competition X Factor Romania.

Biography[edit]

Teodora Sava was born on November 27, 2001 in Piatra Neamț. She was a student at the Victor Brauner High School of Fine Arts in Piatra Neamț, currently studying singing, playing the piano, flute and guitar at George Enescu National College of Music in Bucharest. She does not see herself doing anything else besides music, which defines her.[1][2] She also currently takes acting lessons and made her acting debut in May 2017 at a theater festival in Suceava for young people and children, where she came out first, continuing afterwards with parts in plays such as the teen musical "If We Love Each Other".[3][4]

She attended cultural activities and concerts as well as events for young people. According to her own statements, she "sang at charity concerts, abandoned children's homes and old age asylums", she loves nature and animals, and most of all she loves to engage in the lives of others, including through volunteering.[5][6] She also dreams of singing one day on stage with Beyoncé, Christina Aguilera or Mariah Carey, and she wants to study music abroad.

She sang in duets together with Nico, Paula Seling and the band "Proconsul" at the TV show Next Star and on stage,[7] and the band "FREE STAY" (whose lead singer is Florin Ristei) at the TV show Te cunosc de undeva!.[8]

Her artistic performances since childhood, and performing on the television music talent show X Factor Romania 2017 - Season 7, persuaded the Local Council of Piatra Neamț to invite and give her an award in the presence of the local councilors and town mayor.[9] She was also nominated as Ambassador of Neamț County to the "Young Values" category within the "Gala of the Neamț Ambassadors" and since 2017 she has been a member of the Local Youth Council of Piatra Neamț.[10]

Early life and education[edit]

Teodora Sava was noted for her vocal qualities since kindergarten, being supported at that time by Oana Floricel. "Sister Monica, a nun responsible for the children at the Vincenzina Cusmano Foundation kindergarten, noticed that our little girl had a special voice.[11] She composed and recorded her first songs", according to Mihai Sava, the artist's father.[11] The four songs were recorded and published in 4 CDs for children with different themes. The collaboration with Professor Alina Apetrei at Allegria Club followed, where Teodora was a member. Since November 2009 she has trained with Professor Cristina Cozma from the Children's Palace in Iași and Professor Lucian Sitaru from the Arts High School in Piatra Neamț, the coordinator of the "Camena" group, with whom Teodora won the Special Prize of TVR for the best show at "Mamaia Copiilor" and 2nd place at the Junior Golden Stag Festival, both in 2010.[12][11] The first prize won was the 3rd place at the "Fiero" National Children's Music Festival, held in Bucharest in January 2010. The invitation to sing at the "Junior Golden Stag Festival" contest followed, also in 2010. "In front of the audience, Mihai Trăistariu, who was president of the judging panel, admitted that he was impressed by the way Teodora sang and awarded her the "Revelation of the Festival" prize. Also, composer Dan Dimitriu invited her to perform a few songs at this year's (2010) Junior Golden Stag competition", according to Mihaela Sava, the singer's mother.[11]

Musical and vocal performances[edit]

Her cover songs performed at a very young age at the TV show for kids Next Star 2013 (Listen and One Moment in Time) had many positive reactions from people that were watching her for the first time.[13] One of the judges, the hip hop and pop singer Connect-R, even invited her to sing at his own wedding.[14] Right after that show, she took the offer of recording an original song, called "Belief".[15] For years, while still a child, her songs reached a mature audience. The songs she performs are shown on her YouTube channel. Various Romanian musicians define Teodora Sava as having a constancy in the accurate and seemingly effortless performance of difficult songs with a powerful and well-controlled voice, a native ease of employing melodious melismas and high notes, a pleasant vibrato and a noteworthy vocal range. Thus, singer Pepe, judge of the Next Star show, said in a show that Teodora Sava was the best voice in all the Next Star seasons,[8] Florin Ristei (winner of Season 3 of X Factor Romania) said that Teodora Sava was "the best guest of the 15 Te cunosc de undeva! gala shows so far"[8] and artist Ozana Barabancea told her after her duet in the previously mentioned show: "I applaud Teodora with all my heart. I know your record. You have an extraordinary and very well launched voice, very well supported, because you are flutist at Piatra-Neamţ High School of Arts, so you are a professional musician.[8] That matters a lot, and for those who do not know, breathing for a flute player is what matters most and, even more, it has helped you support your entire musical phrase and approach such a difficult repertoire, because you have acquired very good skills."[7] In season 7 of X Factor Romania 2017, the judges (well-known singers in Romania themselves) repeatedly expressed words (related to her performances) such as "wall","panzer","robot","little robot",[16] "a fifteen-year-old girl who sings her heart out",[17] "you were impeccable",[17] "the best voice by far",[17] "you are the nuisance that motivates all the contestants from behind",[18] "a German battle tank that does its job relentlessly",[19][20] in order to emphasize her accurate performance constancy at high artistic standards in each stage of the contest, regardless of the obstacles and ever present stage fright when taking the stage.
