Proskuryakova Yuliya, Igor Nikolaev’s wife
Proskuryakova Yuliya is an aspiring Russian singer, wife of the famous composer and singer Igor Nikolaev. They got married in 2009. (Igor is 22 years older than Yuliya).
The girl was born on August 11, 1982 in Sverdlovsk (now Yekaterinburg). From 13 to 17 years Yuliya was engaged in the VIA Alyonushka.
Yuliya hasn’t got any special musical education, but has a natural vocal talent.
She is the constant participant of many young performers’ contests.
In 2004 Proskuryakova graduated from the Ural State Law Academy. She participated in the competition among the students of the Russian universities Voice of Russia-2000 in the city of Samara, where Yuliya received the Audience Award and the Special Jury Prize.
Yuliya took part in the musical TV projects Popstars, People’s Artist, and Musical Ring.
New Songs of Julia, no doubt, touch the soul, carry a charge of romance and optimism.
In 2008, the singer participated in the creative evening of Igor Nikolaev in Jurmala in the contest of young singers New Wave. Proskuryakova sometimes participates in Valentin Yudashkin’s Spring Concert show in the Kremlin, Song of the Year, Best Song and other major concerts of the country.
In March 2011, a big concert One Hope For Love was held in the Kremlin Palace.
Her first solo album You’re My Happiness was released in 2013. In the same year Yuliya debuted in the film Provincial Muse, where she played the role of a singer Vicki Mironova. In 2013, she starred as the Secretary of the Latvian Embassy in the film DED 005. In May 2014 the film Tili-tili-testo was released, where Yuliya played the role of matchmaker Ludmila.
As for me, Yuliya looks like Igor’s ex-wife Natasha Koroleva.
