“Participating in The Voice of Romania Junior was a wonderful experience for me because I gained new friends, I met many artists, I had the joy of working with Marius Moga, from whom we learned a lot, so we managed to win the contest. Last but not least, I met people who trusted me and my talent, “confesses Maia, who thanked those who voted and supported her.

Battles were an extremely difficult time for Moga, who had to give up other good voices, but his choice was Maia. The little girl sang the song “Tot mai sus” and impressed people with her voice once more, but also with her attitude on stage, the happiness and the overflowing energy.

Announcement of the winner
Maia tells us about her experience at The Voice of Romania Junior:
“The story started with my mother who enrolled me in this contest and I remember that, at the preselections of” The Voice of Romania Junior ” in Iasi, I only had 2 songs in the repertoire: AC / DC -” Highway to Hell “and Talisman -” Numai una”. I felt so good, I was playing, I was laughing and the fact that I did not have a larger repertoire only worried my mom! I sang AC / DC in front of the jury, and everything was fine. At the preselections in Bucharest they asked me to sing another song and I immediately learned “Bang, Bang” – Jessie J, a song with which I participated at the unseen auditions and I was able to impress the jury and turn all three chairs.
I chose Marius Moga as my coach, that was the way I felt, there was nothing premeditated and together we went on this great adventure! In the finals, things were a little more complicated for me because, by not having a repertoire, I learned a song every day to figure out what suits my voice and personality. If until then my mother worried that I did not have a repertoire, now look at this repertoire!!! We always used to laugh at this when we were in the hotel room and we were learning the songs! Then, in the morning, I practiced in the room, the technique and vocalization with the vocal coach, and in the afternoon I met Marius at DeMoga Music studio and studied the chosen songs: we modified them, changing and working on their interpretation or we went to the Kentaurus studios where the shooting and rehearsals for the Finals of “The Voice of Romania Junior” took place!
There were three more days and I did not have the solo song, it seemed that no song suited my voice, not to mention that the song “Pe barba mea” was rehearsed the day before the Finals, because we had been working on another song to which I gave up, assuming the risk of failing. I remember that I went on stage with Marius and I asked him: “When I have to come in, give me a sign, okay?” Emotions, joy, playfulness, great friends, amazing memories, all these represent for me “The Voice of Romania Junior”! I thank Marius Moga for trusting me, my voice and my talent!
I did not make any plans to get to the Finals, I was just hoping like all the other children and so, with a lot of work, I managed, together with Marius Moga, to win the first season of this competition. From here on, my life got another meaning: I met many artists, I collaborated and sang with them, concerts, recordings, much, much fun, joy, what can I say … a real artist’s life !!!
