The "Power of Love" with Viktoria Vera
Hi Viktoria! Thanks for taking the time to chat with us today!
Where are you located now and where are you originally from?
I am currently located in Boston MA. I used to live in LA for a couple of months where I worked on my most recent music releases. I feel very connected to both of the cities which gave me a lot of inspiration. I am originally from Poland, from a small city in the West of the country. I have always had a dream of escaping from my tiny town in order to achieve my big dreams.
Who has been your greatest influence?
When I was growing up I listened to a lot of hip-hop and RnB music. Artists like Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill, Whitney Houston, etc. At the moment, it’s hard to pinpoint precisely what inspires me the most. I’d say people that surround me are giving me ideas that I’ll ultimately express into my music. I also have come to love Amber Mark and Solange. I have days when I listen to their albums all day.
What is your latest and greatest?
I’m most proud of a song I’ve been working on for the last year. This piece is about a love that I’ve been lucky to experience in the US. It’s about the story between two people who speak different languages but come to understand each other and lift up their passion together. Power of Love will be available on all music platforms on November 27th.
What are you most looking forward to in 2021?
I am looking forward to releasing my first RnB/soul album ( I am soooo excited) and traveling to LA to record new music videos. I’m hoping to perform live and connect with people again. I love being on the stage and feeling the energy of the audience.
What would you say to your younger self if you could?
Listen to your heart, take care of your feelings, and do not care what others think. If you are doing what you really love, this is the right thing. Life is too short to spend it with people who are willing to cut your wings and take your energy away.
On a scale from ONE to TEN, how driven are you?
One hundred haha music is my life. Writing new lyrics and music always keeps me up. I can not be myself without making new music.
How much do you believe LUCK plays a role in success?
I believe in hard work and passion. However, luck comes with your participation and the way you are treating others. Personally, I think luck isn’t fame or money but appreciating what you have at the moment and just being grateful for little things.
How can we stay up to date with you?
You can watch my YouTube channel, where I release new songs every Friday. You can stay updated with my new music releases on my Instagram. You can find my music on Spotify. All the links are below: Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/4TzybXcakau4ag0otuEhKt?si=nr3cPSyCTCCA8zZWkBSesA
