Sirusho’s biography is one of the most accomplished and interesting biographies in the Armenian show business of today. She comes from a family of artists – her parents have been recognized as accomplished artists of Armenia – her father being a renowned actor and director (an Honored Artist of Armenia) and her mother a reputable singer beloved by the public (also an Honored Artist of Armenia).
Sirusho’s first encounter with singing and music was when she was ten months old. Yet, it wasn’t long before she started to sing full songs, being two years old. One of the songs that Sirusho performed as a child was “Qele-qele”, an Armenian folk song written in the early 1900s by Komitas.
For over 13 years, the 21 year old artist continues to be one of the most famous and adored singers for Armenians in Armenia and abroad. In one of her interviews she mentioned, “I have never been one of those children who dreamt of becoming a singer. I was a little kid and people would ask me to sing at events. Every time after I sang, I would see the amazed looks on their faces and I couldn’t figure out the reason. I mean, I thought I wasn’t doing a hard thing, I was just singing the way I felt the music”. Those amazed faces marked the beginning of her career, following her from success to success.
