Elina: I grew up listening and playing music. My parents are very musical, and my 5 brothers and I were all taught classical piano at the age of 7. Later, my brothers started a band and we toured as a family. I don't think there was a specific time when I discovered that I could sing...I think it was my parents who discovered it. According to family home videos, I was about 3 years old when I sang my first song at a family event...I sang half the song then fell to the floor crying--haha. My parents started me out young. At 11, I decided for myself music was going to be what I would pursue.
