HERE YOU CAN READ DALMA’S HIGHLIGHTS OF HER LIFE IN HER OWN WORDS:

THE BEGINNING

Women usually lie about this stuff, especially when they get to their thirties, but I will tell you the truth: I was born on 18 May 1985. This only means that I started to hardly let go of useless stuff gathered in my home like some books I will never ever read again, bed sheets for at least 50 guests who might visit in the same time and my stage shoes. I literally don’t have space in my house but just for one thing: my mom’s homemade zacusca!

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

My parents are the best! They made it possible for us to be who we are today: smart, kind, beautiful, talented, friendly, positive, wise, funny and modest! When I mean “us”, I mean myself and my older brother. Back then I loved him soooo much that I couldn’t wait to hit him with my original barbie doll after he almost killed me tickling my belly till I was out of breath! Luckily for him, God invented unconditional love so yes, I still love him.

SCHOOL

Pre. Primary. Secondary. High. Any school, you name it, music was the one and only class where I excelled without effort and it was also the only class where I first cheated and got caught (thanks for my brother’s stupid cheating method!). My parents didn’t have a lot of money but somehow they always managed to buy new music vinyls and cassettes for their noisy kids. There was always music playing out loud in our house and that’s why I learned by heart all the lyrics to all the songs I heard. I still have an awesome memory, I just can’t remember where I put it…

AMERICAN DREAM

Few people know this but in the spring of 2006 I sang at the premier of the musical “Viva Concha!” in the oldest theater of the beautiful city of California, San Francisco. I have to tell you, that was a blast! All my thanks go to Candace Forest, who saw me singing at my little jazz concert in San Francisco and decided immediately that I had to participate in her life’s biggest project. She is the composer and producer of the musical and the nicest lady in town!

DIVERTIS

We already had comedy in our family, my dad was the “master clown”, but when I was selected to be the singer and the only Hungarian speaking actress of the famous Divertis comedy group for their TV show, I screamed: “Bullseye, baby”! Singing and making jokes at the same time? That sounds like my ideal life! It was such an honor to work with this group 3 years in a row! To be honest, they inspired me to work on a new comedy project. You will hear about it as soon as it will be ready. Nope. Not sooner.

VOCEA ROMANIEI or… “DO I KNOW YOU?”

People kept recognising me everywhere I went but they always told me: “I know your face, I’ve seen you on TV but I don’t really know who you are…” Believe me, it started to get frustrating so I decided to sing in a famous TV show that all Romania had an eye on. No, both eyes. Can you guess? Yes! The Voice of Romania alias “Vocea Romaniei”. I thought I will solve the “I know you but I don’t” problem but after the staff forced me to change the color of my hair from red to light blonde (still don’t know why!!!), it got worse. People started saying: “Your voice sounds familiar and I can’t figure out from where do I know your face”. Brilliant. First I didn’t understand why all this happened to me but when I was asked to take part of a TV show where the whole idea was to get into the skin of a singer so that nobody could recognise you (they thought I’m very good at disguising myself), I suddenly understood: I’m good at this! Here comes the “Your Face Sounds Familiar” period!

TE CUNOSC DE UNDEVA (English version: Your Face Sounds Familiar)

This is a very popular show in Romania. I was so blessed to be part of this! Many people still ask me: how is it to be in the role of a superstar? Well, to be in the skin of Christina Aguilera, Celine Dion, Madonna, Michael Buble, Cher, Amy Winehouse and many more, is… itchy. I mean all the wigs and all the makeup, all the mustache and socks between your legs for all those hours in the spotlight, all this in the middle of summer with 40 degrees outside in Bucharest… What can I say? Not cool, man. Not cool. But I learned a lot! I learned how to be a real blonde girl (Aguilera), I learned to sing really high notes with a french accent (Celine), I learned how to sing not so well (Madonna), I learned that women do like men in suits (Buble) and I learned a lot about painkillers and alcohol combination (Amy).

MY SONGS ON THE RADIO

Did you know? My Hungarian songs are played several times a day on the Gaga Radio in Targu Mures and on Paprika Radio in Cluj Napoca. I also have a huge Hungarian fanbase and as a thank you for being so supportive, soon we’ll have a CD with Hungarian songs and concerts in Ardeal Land also. That’s a promise!

DISNEY

In 2013 Disney picked me for the singing voice of Elsa of Frozen in Romania! I am so lucky! I bet even Bugs Bunny would have loved that, actually he would have done a quite good of a “queen” of Arendelle. Just imagine him saying: “Hey, what’s up doc? Would you LET IT GO already?”
