18 years old to VIA Gra: what the brightest members of the trio look like today
This year, the group "VIA Gra" turns 18 years old. Throughout its history, the group changed about 20 teams, a couple of times the “freshly picked” teams disintegrated, not having existed together even for a couple of months, the producers repeatedly declared the trio dissolving ... But, despite all this, VIA Gra has survived to this day a group of Russian show business.
In honor of the majority of the collective, we decided to recall the brightest participants of the group and see how they have changed over the years. By the way, almost all the girls from “VIA Gra” continue to work successfully in the field of domestic show business.
Nadezhda Granovskaya, aka “Chernenkaya” from “VIA Gra”, has been in the group since its foundation in 2000. The sexy brunette left the group three times, but in total she still lasted in “VIA Gre” for almost 8 years. Today, 35-year-old Nadezhda Meikher-Granovskaya brings up three children, is engaged in choreography and her own clothing brand.
Few people remember, but it was Alyona Vinnitskaya and Nadezhda Granovskaya who sang the very "Attempt No. 5". Alyona (real name Olga) sang in “VIA Gre” for the first 2.5 years, and loyal fans still believe that she was the “soul and voice” of the team. After leaving the group in 2003, Vinnitskaya took up a solo career. The girl is now actively performing, recording songs and conducting active social activities.
Vera Brezhnev came to the VIA Gro by chance: in 2002, during a concert in Dnepropetrovsk, the audience was offered to go up to the stage and sing along with the group Attempt No. 5. A student at an engineering institute, Vera Brezhneva, came out and sang. The group's producers simply could not fail to notice a beautiful girl, and even with good vocals, and a few months later Vera became a “white girl” from VIA Gra. The blonde has devoted the group almost 5 years, and having left the trio, she began a successful solo career. Today Brezhnev sings, acts in film, conducts show on TV and brings up children.
Despite the fact that Anna Sedokova sang in the composition of “VIA Gra” for only 2 years, this composition (Brezhneva, Granovskaya, Sedokova) is considered “golden”.Against the background of the other members of the team, Anna looked like a sweet and touching girl, and this despite pretty provocative outfits. In 2004, Sedokova left the trio, gave birth to a daughter and disappeared from the stage for a year. After 2 years, Anna began a solo career, which continues to this day. Today, the "redhead" from "VIA Gra" has three children, she is a popular performer and fashion designer. Not a trace is left of the former “milots”: the 2018 Sedokov of the sample will easily give a head start to the good half of the VIA Gra participants.
Svetlana Loboda came to the place of Anna Sedokova who passed away on maternity leave, but she worked at VIA Gre for only 4 months. This experience has become for the girl an excellent “springboard” to the world of Ukrainian first, and then Russian show business. The H2LO album, released by Svetlana in 2017, became one of the most successful, and Loboda herself was recognized as the “Woman of the Year” by the version of Glamor magazine.
Many fans of "VIA Gra" believe that the composition of the group with Albina (Janabaeva, Brezhnev, Granovskaya) was the "golden" for the team. Albina Dzhanabaeva replaced the departed Svetlana Loboda and lasted the longest in the group - her experience of 8 years and 1 month.In 2013, the red-haired beauty left the group and has since led a quiet lifestyle, raising two sons with her husband, Valery Meladze.
The most difficult thing was to find a “new one” at the place of Vera Brezhneva who left in 2007. After almost 8 months, Miss Russia 2006, Tatiana Kotova, appears in the group, and she has successfully performed in VIA Gra for 2 years. According to rumors, Kotová’s trio had to leave because of a conflict with Albina Dzhanabaeva, who was very jealous of the newcomer to Valery Meladze. After leaving the band, Tatiana was engaged in a solo career, and last year she released her first solo album.
Santa Dimopulos was a graduate of the third season of the Ukrainian “Star Factory”, produced by Konstantin Meladze. At the same time, “VIA Gru” for the third time left Nadezhda Granovskaya, and Santa took her place. However, less than a year later, the beauty went on a solo voyage, and the group “VIA Gra” once again almost fell apart. In 2013, the project was completely reformatted, so that Santa became one of the last participants of “the very VIA Gra”.
