Mari Harutyunyan (Armenian: Մարի Հարությունյան, born 1993 in Schwerin, Germany) is an Armenian-German singer.[1]

Early life

Mari was born in Schwerin, Germany to Armenian parents, one of her parents being from Armenia. She is the great granddaughter of Ivan Aivazovsky. Her family moved to Nuremberg, where she now lives, when she was very young. She started singing when she was 9 years old and sang in the church choir of the Armenian community in Nuremberg and dances in an Armenian folklore group called “Hrashq.” She speaks Armenian, German and English fluently.[2]

Music career

Mari was a participant on second season of “The Voice of Germany” song contest. She performed Emeli Sande’s “Heaven”. Although all of the contest coaches wanted Mari in their team, she chose Xavier Naidoo as her coach.[3] Also on Naidoo's team was Iveta Mukuchyan, who is also an Armenian-German. Mukuchyan was the eventual second phase contest winner, resulting in Harutyunyan's elimination.[4]
