Born and raised in Bulgaria, Sonya inherited the love for rhythm and music from her father who is originally from Nicaragua.
She started singing at the early age of twelve. With the help of her middle school music teacher who discovered her talent and started working with her individually, she became a solo child performer and won many singing competitions in Bulgaria and throughout Europe.
Her name became known in her home country when she appeared on the popular television singing competition "Music Idol" where she was one of the Top 10 finalists. Following her success on the show she became part of a female duo and toured the country singing at live music clubs, piano bars, and festivals.
A few years later she decided to test her talent again on Bulgarian national television, this time in a different singing competition - the X Factor. Her graceful and unique voice got her on the big stage again, but it didn't win her the title. That although set the ground for the release of her first single -
" За един момент" (Just for a moment) which was also premiered on Bulgarian National Television. In the mean time she was invited to sing with the band of one of the most watched comedy shows in Bulgaria - "The Comedians".
Seeking adventure and improvement, in 2017 she decided to move out of her comfort zone and explore the music scene outside of her home country Bulgaria ...and that brought her to the United States.
