Irina was born in a small town near Moscow, Russia. Her family name is Arkhangelskaya, which means angel with six wings. Since childhood, Irina has had a great interest in music, writing poems, melodies and singing. At the age of three, she heard her first foreign song – Bobby McFerrin's, "Don't Worry Be Happy" and even though she didn't understand English at that time, it was this song that inspired the beginning of her music studies and influenced her love for foreign music. Irina believed that as a poor Russian child, she would never have a chance to experience this wonderful music live. Through her hard work and persistence, she has made this dream come true.
In 1992 and at the age of seven, Irina started music school. She later attended a music college and was awarded a scholarship to receive both her undergraduate and master's degrees in music, where she graduated at the top of her class with both degrees. During her 15 years of studding music, she began to write songs, sang at her local church and performed at local functions. In 2007, after receiving her music diplomas, Irina was asked to teach at her Alma mater.
After teaching, she performed at the top cabaret lounges, nightclubs and concert halls in Moscow, which then catapulted her career as a Russian pop star and lyricist. She seeks to continue her success in Las Vegas and demonstrate her appreciation and love for music and the United States.
