Eurovision winner Jamala performs on London Live

Singer Jamala shot to fame around the world when she represented the Ukraine and won the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest with the track '1944'.

But her musical journey began decades before that. She made her first professional record at the age of 9 and later graduated from the Tchaikovsky National Music Academy of Ukraine as an opera singer.

After setting her sights on a career in pop, her style now combines soul, jazz, funk, folk and electronica.
