Biography

Gabriela Yordanova (Gabi) was born in Rousse (Bulgaria) and she has taken part in various national and international competitions earning more than 50 prizes in different categories as singer and violinist. Her singing passion started when she was only three and a half.

At the age of four she took part in her first International Competition for young performers, “RechniNoti”(River Notes), where she won first prize – from there she has gone on to have much success!

Aged four Gabi asked to take up violin at Prof. Vesselin Stoyanov’s Ruse National School of Arts, closing the violin herself. Initially she wanted to play the cello to be like her brother, but wasn’t able to due to her it being too big for her to use at he young age! A year later Gabi took up swimming, again following her brother who was already part of the Bulgarian national team. She continued to swim until very recently at the Iris Swimming Club in her home town.

Gabi has been on stage for eight years, taking part in many competitions in Bulgaria and abroad in places such as Kazakhstan, Russia, Hungary, Romania, Belarus, Italy. Since the age of eight she has been singing at “Milka Stoeva” Burgas with vocal pedagogy teacher Marieta Seklemova. Composer Plamen Mirchev-Mirona has been her vocal pedagogy teacher for the last 18 months.

Gabi has performed with many Bulgarian pop music stars including Neli Rangelova, Orlin Goranov, Kamelia Todorova, Kamelia Voce, Ani Varbanova, and Petia Buiuklieva to name but a few. In 2014 she shared the stage with Lili Ivanova, the Prima of Bulgarian Pop Music at the Bulgarian concert which was part of the “Slavyanski Bazar” (Slavic Bazar) Festival .Gabi has also performed with the Big Band of the Bulgarian National Radio as well as the Rousse Jazz Syndicate and group “Acapella”.

In the spring of last year she took part in the UNICEF and UNESCO Charity Concert “Balkan Bridges Speak” at the invitation of Irina Bokova – Director General of UNESCO. The performance was in Albania with representatives from all Balkan countries, with the goal of the project being under the motto “Where Politics is Helpless, Art Helps.” When she’s not singing, Gabi loves to draw and to dance.

Gabriela Yordanova will be supported on stage by 12-year-old Ivan Stoyanov, who came second at national final.

Lyrics:

Bulgarian

Днес е твърде сив света,
твърде скучен и строг,
безразличен и студен,
а за някой – жесток.
Ала имам аз чудесен план –
много лесен, много прост,
можем даже само аз и ти
пак да върнем на света усмивката.

Да разбъркаме в едно
всичките цветове,
и така да оцветим
прашните градове.
Махай сивото и черното,
спри за миг, вдигни очи –
ето, помниш ли – забравил си –
там са цветовете на надеждата.

ПРИПЕВ:
Дъгата виж – превръща се във дъжд,
литват капчици безброй във шарен порой.
И всяка от тях, докоснеш ли веднъж,
ражда хиляди дъги, във които пак блести надеждата.

Много лесно е това,
може всеки от нас
сам със своите ръце
да покрие с дъга
всички уморени улици,
всички къщи и стени –
отиди и изрисувай ги
само с цветовете на мечтите си.

ПРИПЕВ:
Дъгата виж – превръща се във дъжд,
литват капчици безброй във шарен порой.
И всяка от тях, докоснеш ли веднъж,
ражда хиляди дъги, във които пак блести надеждата.

Phonetic

Dnes e tvarde siv sveta,
tvarde skuchen i strog,
bezrazlichen i studen,
a za nyakoy – zhestok.
Ala imam az chudesen plan –
mnogo lesen, mnogo prost,
mozhem dazhe samo az i ti
pak da varnem na sveta usmivkata.

Da razbarkame v edno
vsichkite tsvetove,
i taka da otsvetim
prashnite gradove.
Mahay sivoto i chernoto,
spri za mig, vdigni ochi –
eto, pomnish li – zabravil si –
tam sa tsvetovete na nadezhdata.

CHORUS:
Dagata vizh – prevrashta se vav dazhd,
litvat kapchitsi bezbroy vav sharen poroy.
I vsyaka ot tyah, dokosnesh li vednazh,
razhda hilyadi dagi, vav koito pak blesti nadezhdata.

Mnogo lesno e tova,
mozhe vseki ot nas
sam sas svoite ratse
da pokrie s daga
vsichki umoreni ulitsi,
vsichki kashti i steni –
otidi i izrisuvay gi
samo s tsvetovete na mechtite si.

CHORUS:
Dagata vizh – prevrashta se vav dazhd,
litvat kapchitsi bezbroy vav sharen poroy.
I vsyaka ot tyah, dokosnesh li vednazh,
razhda hilyadi dagi, vav koito pak blesti nadezhdata.

English

Today the world is too grey,

Too boring and stern,

Indifferent and cold

And for some – even cruel.

But I have an incredible plan

It’s very simple and easy

Even just you and I

Could give the world back its smile.

 

Let’s mix in

All of the colors

And then paint

The dusty towns.

Get rid of the grey and the black,

Stop for a moment, look up,

Do you remember, did you forget,

There are the colors of hope.

 

CHORUS:

Look at the rainbow, it turns into rain

And countless colorful raindrops fall down.

And each one of them, if you touch it just once,

creates a thousand rainbows, where hope shines.

 

It’s all so easy,

Maybe each one of us

Could with their own hands

Cover with a rainbow

Each tired street,

Each house and each wall:

Go and paint on them

Only with the colors of your dreams.

 

CHORUS:

Look at the rainbow, it turns into rain

And countless colorful raindrops fall down.

And each one of them, if you touch it just once,

creates a thousand rainbows, where hope shines
