The Ukrainian Susan Boyle!

23 January 2010

I’ve just come across this You Tube video (thank you, Judith) of the winner of Ukraine’s Got Talent (yes, there really is such a show).  She’s 24 year old Kseniya Simonova, who’s a sand artist.

She tells the story of the Second World War which killed a quarter of the Ukrainian population and in the process reduces most of the audience to tears.  And she does it all in sand.  It’s really quite extraordinary.


  1. I think the words at the end are “Peace always …” but I can’t understand the last one. Perhaps someone with a Russian or Ukrainian heritage can help out.

  2. That’s is amazing! Thanks for sharing it!

  3. I’ve watched it again and again! Thanks to you and sister!
