Gela A. Guralia was born on 22 December 1980 in Poti, Georgia. Back in his childhood he was notable for his singing, which was noticed by the kinder garden principal, so she decided to draw Gela’s mother’s attention to his talent. At the age of 5 he performed for the first time in his life from the stage of the local theatre in his hometown. Afterwards he was singing in the church choir, the “White seagull” band and the folk music group “Fazisi”.

In 2004 Gela along with his musical band decided to move to Moscow. For five years he has been singing in the restaurants, performing an exclusive program but always thinking for his bigger dreams. In 2008 Gela finally realized that he needed to change the direction of his work. He came back to Georgia for good as he thought at that moment to start his solo career, produce and promote his first album. However, all these was not meant to happen.
It was a lucky coincidence that he turned on the TV on The Voice Russia. Gela was impressed by the live music, orchestra and young creative mind… He sent his records from Tbilisi and got the invitation to attend the audition.

By the end of the project Gela became one of the most recognized and popular participants of the competition. His unique tenor altino voice, unforgettable style of performance, his kindness and humbleness left excited millions of hearts.
