Natalia Barbu was born on 22 August 1979 in Bălți, in what was then, the Soviet Union. Bălți is Moldova’s second largest city.
Natalia was a member of a jazz ensemble called Trigon, before submitting the song Fight as Moldova’s Eurovision entry. At the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest, she finished 10th at the contest.
She works mainly in neighbouring, Romania, where her song, Îngerul meu was a major success.
Natalia got married in 2011 to a millionaire which meant that she didn’t need to work so hard on her career. Nevertheless, the following year she released the song I Said It’s Sad. She entered the Romanian selection in 2013 with Confession, but placed 13th out of 16 in her semi-final.
In 2020, she released her latest song, Lubeste-Ma Azi, and performed a half hour concert at the Moldovan 2020 National final.
