Nadezhda Meyher-Garnovskaya – a half of “VIA Gra”
About how the dark-haired beauty got into a new girl group, now there are legends. There are two versions. First: in 2000, singer Nadezhda Meikher-Granovskaya Khmelnitsky came on tour with Valery Meladze. He performed in the same theater where Nadia worked. Thanks to an acquaintance that took place, Nadezhda learned that the brother of the famous singer, Konstantin, was casting to a new group. Nadia arranged a photo session for herself and sent her to Kiev. Konstantin Meladze and Dmitry Kostyuk saw photos of Nadezhda and were invited to sample in the capital. The second is based on the fact that there was no acquaintance with Valery Meladze. Just producers Dmitry Kostyuk and Konstantin Meladze were looking for another singer in the group, and they needed a girl not only with good vocal skills, but also a bright, spectacular appearance, as well as artistic data. There were many suitable candidates for these criteria, but Konstantin decided to do it differently. Together with his brother, they went on a tour of the cities of Ukraine. During this tour, in one of the cities in his hands fell Nadia amateur photo session. It is this non-professional photo shoot that played a decisive role in the fate of Hope. Thus, the first line-up of the VIA Gra group was formed – Alena Vinnitskaya and Nadia Granovsky. At that time, the stage lacked something very bright, capable of capturing the attention of the listener, something completely new, capable of attracting the viewer with fundamental differences from others. We needed a team capable of equally successfully winning the hearts of the most demanding audience, which may surprise, create a positive mood.
Attempt number one
The first clip of the group – “Attempt No. 5” – achieved tremendous success, both in Ukraine and in Russia. In Kiev, Nadia adapted easily. singer Nadezhda Meikher-Granovskaya, She always sought where there are more opportunities. Although the first time the girl had to hard: his friends did not yet have, Alena had her own company. At that time, Nadia just walked a lot through the streets of the capital, she strenuously continued to do choreography, spent a lot of time in the gym.
For the next two years, the group continued to conquer the top of the charts, releasing one after another super-successful compositions: “Hug me”, “Bomb”, “I won’t be back”. In 2002, the situation in the group changed slightly: Hope had to leave the team because of pregnancy. But, giving birth to a son on August 15, 2002, who was named Igor in honor of his father, a successful Kiev businessman, for whom the girl had never married, Nadia recovers form and returns in a month.
“I will not come back …”, thought Meyher-Granovskaya
During the five years that Nadezhda worked in the group, its composition has changed more than once. But the popularity did not go away, because “the little black from“ VIA Gra ”was present, the singer Nadezhda Meikher-Granovskaya means everything is in order. Suddenly, at the end of 2005, they began to say that the producers are going to dissolve the popular team. But in the beginning of 2006 a new music video was released in the new lineup, without Nadezhda Granovskaya. She felt it was time to radically change their lives, and left the team. According to her, there were many reasons, but everything had its time, the main reason – in itself, there was a strong feeling that it was time to start something new in your life. Left the team without scandals, without misunderstanding, at the peak of popularity.
The first two months, she almost did not get out of bed – slept off. Then for some time I was engaged in household chores, as a child, she herself took her son to kindergarten, which had never been possible before, even engaged in the study of foreign languages, English and Spanish. After leaving, Nadia changed her appearance beyond recognition. singer Nadezhda Meikher-Granovskaya, she had a short haircut, changed the outrageous clothes to tightly buttoned jackets, began to use a discreet make-up. Now, looking at the singer, it was difficult to recognize the former “bomb”. But the timeout did not last long, Nadia could not just go with the flow. Accidentally learning about the casting on one of the popular Ukrainian channels, she began a new career, but this time not in the music field. She returned her real name – Meyher – and took the place of TV presenter on Ukrainian television in the program “Incredible Love Stories”.
