Irina Nero 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 3, she heard her first foreign song – Bobby McFerrin’s, “Don’t Worry Be Happy”. It was this nsong 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 7, Irina started music school. She later attended a music college and was awarded a scholarship to study for her undergraduate and master’s degrees in music.

In 2007, after receiving all music diplomas, Irina was asked to teach at her alma mater. After teaching, she began to perform 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 pop and jazz success in Las Vegas, as well as demonstrate her appreciation and love for music and the United States.
