Erika Lundmoen is a Norwegian-Russian singer. She represented Russia at the thirty-second edition of the North Vision Song Contest with the song "Milaya".


The future star was born on September 21, 1996 in a small Norwegian city in the province of Oppland. Who is Erica Lundmoen by nationality? Her father is Norwegian, and her mother is Russian. The singer repeatedly wrote in social networks (Vkontakte, ask.fm) that she considers herself to be Norwegian. By the way, it was the singer’s non-standard surname that caused frequent debate about her real name. In the caption for one of the clips, the Lundmoen Valley is mentioned. However, based on the available data, the name of the valley did not become a source of ideas for a pseudonym, Lundmoen is the name of the performer’s father. At the very beginning of the 2000s, Hans Lundmoen opened his own business in Russia, and the whole family moved to St. Petersburg. Erica enrolled in a school in the northern capital and graduated from several courses at the maritime club for teenagers in Anichkov Palace, which taught her to strict discipline. Erica also studied ballet, but her true passion was always music and singing. Like many aspiring musicians, the girl opened herself by singing songs of famous rock and pop artists, and posting them on social networks under the pseudonym Erika Wild. According to the singer, she tried to write her own songs at school, but for a long time did not dare to show them to anyone. Leaving the ballet, Erica focused on her music classes. Parents did not oppose the choice of their daughter and supported her in everything. At the end of 2017, the budding star became a guest of the popular Internet show “Fingers in Tears” from RADIOKIDSFM, where she told the presenters that she did not consider herself a celebrity at all, and named Zemfira, whom she admired since childhood, as her favorite singer. Soon after, she managed to leave the Internet and in the spring of 2018, her first solo concert was held, which was held in the capital's club of Alexei Kozlov. Special guests: Vanya Nanik and Ilya Kireev, as well as Mary Gu, came to support the young singer, who first performed at one of the famous cultural parties Soul Kitchen. In addition to the songs already known and loved by many, the singer presented her new song “Poison”, which was destined to break the record for popularity and become the most popular single, especially among a female audience.
