Biography
Lada Volkova (Lada Dance's real name) was born was born on September 11th, 1966 in Kaliningrad. In 1986, she graduated from the music school on voice training program. She got as a speciality a cantatrice and a voice-training. In 1990, Lada Dance joined the band Zhensovet. Her musical career has really started from that moment on. Since 1992 the singer has begun to perform solo. She collaborated for some time with composer Leonid Velichkovski and performed his songs, such as Zhit' nuzhno v kaif, Noch', Reggae v nochi. She took part in the musical film Pesni o glavnom, 1 (Songs about the main things, part 1). As a guest star, she participated in musical contests such as "Zvezdniy Dozhd'-92" (Star Rain-92), "50/50", "Hit-Parade Ostankino-93", "Yalta-Moscow-Transit-93", "The voice of Asia-9". In 1997 she gave birth to her daughter Liza. Just before, when she was pregnant, she was filmed in a very successful video "Aromat ljubvi" (Love's aroma). Lada Dance's song Day mne etot vecher (Give me this evening) involved the singer in a scandal. She was accused of plagiarism because the melody of her song resembled Ricki Martin's Livin' la vida loca. Souz Studio demanded then to stop performing this song. Nevertheless, it didn't spoil, but improved Lada's popularity indeed! In 1994, she made an acquaintance with Ralf Siegel, the famous German Eurovision producer. Her company bought the rights for his songs. She then sang Mekado's German entry for ESC '94. That song became a smash hit in Russia. Ralf Siegel decided to write a song for Lada for the next year's Eurovision, but as a member of the ESC German jury he was not allowed to do that. Among Lada's most popular songs, there are Aromat ljubvi, Bud' so mnoy (Be with me), Devochka-nol' (A zero girl), Nas bolshe net (We do not exist anymore) or Noch' (The night).
The song Ne sud'ba (No fate) was originally written by Sergei Patrushev (famous Russian song writer) for Alla Pugacheva, but it didn't seem to please her for some reasons and was then presented to Lada Dance.
Original lyrics Ne sud'ba
 
Tam, gde krichit sova v tumane u reki,
Zhit' by mne s toboj
Zhit'... pozabyv slova, po linijam ruki
Kak dano sud'boj
Razve eto tak uzh slozhno?
Razve nevozmozhno i dusha slaba?
 
Kto-to s neba ostorozhno
Prosheptal mne: "Mozhno, tol'ko ne sud'ba"
Razve eto tak uzh slozhno?
Razve nevozmozhno i dusha slaba?

 
Jest', vidno, gde-to raj, da mne v nem ne pozhit'
Tol'ko pomechtat'
Jest' u zemli tot kraj, da mne na etom byt'
Pis'ma posylat'
Razve eto tak uzh slozhno?
Razve nevozmozhno i dusha slaba?
 
Kto-to s neba ostorozhno
Prosheptal mne: "Mozhno, tol'ko ne sud'ba"
Razve eto tak uzh slozhno?
Razve nevozmozhno i dusha slaba?

 
Razve eto tak uzh slozhno?
Razve nevozmozhno i dusha slaba?
Kto-to s neba ostorozhno
Prosheptal mne: "Mozhno, tol'ko ne sud'ba"

 
Tol'ko ne sud'ba...
English lyrics No fate
 
There, where the owl is screeching in the fog near the river,
I would like to live with you
Just live... by the line of fortune in our hands, having forgotten the words
Like our destiny tells us
Is it that difficult?
Is it impossible and the soul is too weak?
 
Somebody from the sky
Carefully whispered to me: "It's possible, but no fate"
Is it that difficult?
Is it impossible and the soul is too weak?

 
There might be a paradise somewhere, but I'm not destined to live there
I can only dream about it
That place exists on Earth, but my fate is to be here
I can just send the letters there
Is it that difficult?
Is it impossible and the soul is too weak?
 
Somebody from the sky
Carefully whispered to me: "It's possible, but no fate"
Is it that difficult?
Is it impossible and the soul is too weak?

 
Is it that difficult?
Is it impossible and the soul is too weak?
Somebody from the sky
Carefully whispered to me: "It's possible, but no fate"

 
But no fate...
