"Let every border that divides become a meeting of hearts and minds/ Every flag we salute fly with the gentle wind of gratitude." Singer/songwriter Tinatin, named by Billboard Magazine as one of the "fresh faces to keep an eye out for in 2008," is adding final touches to her debut album with a number of the industry's top producers and scribes on both sides of the Atlantic, including Christopher Neil (also executive producer and vocal producer.) Tinatin, whose song "Wild" was heralded as a 2007 year-end Top 10 Critic's Pick by Billboard Magazine, was not even 4 years old when she started singing. While most kids her age were croaking nursery rhymes, she was perfecting her own rendition of "We Are the World." It was that childish fixation with one song that fueled what would become Tinatin's calling and career. At a young age, Tinatin, who was born in Georgia, then a part of the Soviet Union, was also painting, writing and fluently speaking six languages. "I had to focus on one thing and singing was the natural choice. I felt like I was in my true element when I sang," she says of the decision. Today, the 24-year-old's career is on the verge of catapulting into mainstream success. Her first single, "We the Peoples," co-written with FAB and Arnie Roman, has been released on iTunes. It is based on the United Nations charter, a bureaucratic post-war document explaining the purpose of the UN. "I really wanted to do something different, to make a difference, no matter how small, through my music." She hopes that the song will spread the message of the international organization, one she believes has become less honored over the years. "We the Peoples" was recently reviewed by Billboard senior correspondent Chuck Taylor, who called it "a penultimate, contemporary anthem honoring the mission of the United Nations, perhaps more relevant than ever, given the flux of worldwide politics… a resonant affirmation that politics actually have potential to unite." Tinatin's music career began in earnest in 1998 when she auditioned with Professor Luigi Alva at La Scala and was offered the distinction of being offered a place at the Academy. At 14, she began classical vocal lessons with renowned Maestro Gocha Bezhuashvili, who has worked with La Scala, The Metropolitan Opera and Covent Garden. In the summer of 1998, Tinatin was invited to open the 1st Festival of Russian Films in Cannes and was then asked by the Mayor of Nice to close the annual Carnival of Flowers with her version of Jacques Brel's "Quand On N'A Que L'Amour." Three years later, she relocated to London to study journalism—and while there, launched her first promotional tour. Live performances and TV/radio interviews with Tinatin were featured on BBC, Channel 5 and ITV's "London Tonight," where Capital FM's Neil "Doctor" Fox referred to her "really fantastic and beautiful voice. She's unbelievable. It's a voice that you would want people to put money behind." Tinatin recounts, "One of the highlights of my early days came when I was asked by my all-time heroes, Alan and Marilyn Bergman, to perform 'A Piece of Sky' from 'Yentl' at the Creative Arts Awards honoring Marilyn, who alongside her husband, wrote some of the most touching and beautiful lyrics that I was brought up listening to." That performance marked her American debut, where she was presented to Mayor Rudi Giuliani and consummate Broadway composer Cy Coleman by the legendary conductor, arranger and composer Marvin Hamlisch, and accompanied by jazz pianist great Mike Renzi. Described by Neil—the creative force behind Celine Dion, Mike & the Mechanics and Sheena Easton—as an artist with an "outstanding voice for people who want to make great music," Tinatin stands as a young, charismatic artist with the talent and moxie to forge one of the choice debut albums of the year.
