ALEKSEEV (the artistic name of Nikita Alekseev) was born in 1993 in Kyiv, Ukraine. He was mainly raised by his mother, because his father left the family before he was born. During Alekseev’s life he never met his father, but he still hopes to meet him one day. ALEKSEEV's songs and performances have one goal: He hopes listeners will open up to their emotions and feelings. During the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest it is his main goal to share his own feelings and emotions with the world.
