Sofia Mykhailivna Yevdokymenko-Rotaru (born August 7, 1947) known as Sofia Rotaru (Ukrainian: Софiя Ротару; IPA: [sɔˈfijɑ rɔˈtɑru]) is a Soviet and Ukrainian pop singer of Moldavian heritage.
Born to a large, impoverished family in Marshintsy, Rotaru, called Bukovinsky Solovey (Nightingale from Bukovina) emerged in 1966 as a pop folk star in the movie Solovey iz sela Marshintsy (Nightingale from Marshintsy) in the Moldavian and Ukrainian-speaking world after her manager and future husband Anatoliy Jevdokymenko made her change her music style from the folk into the pop music style with Chervona Ruta.
In 1972, Sofia released the multilingual album Sofia Rotaru, re-released three times and covered by numerous singers, establishing herself as a viable pop artist in the countries of the former Soviet Union. Rotaru had first gained international recognition after participating in 1968 in the International Youth Song Festival in Bulgaria and winning the first prize at the Golden Orpheus in 1973 and the second prize in the category of Polish songs at the Sopot International Song Festival in 1974. In the former USSR her career was marked by her stage success and numerous controversies.[dubious] Sofia Rotaru is known for her sex appeal and recognition by the Kiev Patriarchate. She has been named the Ukrainian Show Queen and the Queen of Pop Music in Russia and countries of the former USSR.
Rotaru has been performing for more than 40 years. According to the polls, she is the most popular pop artist in Russia and topped the Moscow airplay with "Ya nazovu planetu imenem tvoim" in 2008. In 2008, she declared revenue significantly higher than 500 million hryvnia (about $100 million).
Her repertoire consists of more than 40 albums and 400 songs recorded in many languages. She has received awards, including being the first female pop-singer to be given the prestigious title of People's Artist of USSR in 1986, deemed a Meritorious Artist of the Ukrainian SSR, People's Artist of Ukraine, People's Artist of Moldavian SSR, Laureate of the Young Communist League Prize, Hero of Moldova, and Cavalier of the Republican Order of Moldova. in August 2002 Former President of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma and President of Russia Vladimir Putin gave awards to Sofia Rotaru (for her 55th birthday), bestowing upon her the high rank of the Hero of Ukraine for her "outstanding personal merits in the sphere of art", and the Russian order "For merits before the Nation", respectively. While Sofia Rotaru commonly goes by her last name, her official last name is Jevdokymenko-Rotaru (Ukrainian: Євдокименко-Ротару). Jevdokymenko was the surname of her late husband. Yalta is her main residence, although she also lives in Moscow, Kiev, and Baden-Baden
