Valentina was a baby when she victoriously escaped communism in Romania in the 1980’s with her parents on a small boat on the River Danube. The soldiers were armed and they had dogs with them. They used German Shepherds with very strong bodies that were trained to kill. Only God’s supernatural intervention made it possible for Valentina’s miraculous escape from communism in Romania, during the Ceaușescu regime, which is a long story.
“It was a smooth boat ride. We made it in about 15 minutes” she said.
Although Valentina was born in Timișoara, one of the largest cities in Romania, and speaks fluently Romanian, she also has both a Russian and Serbian background. Her favorite subjects in High School were commerce, languages, and of course, music where she won academic excellence awards for all three subjects including the Italian language.
Valentina was a top student at Ambassador Bible College. Her College studies are wide and varied, and include Music Business, Marketing, Computing and Make-up artistry.
A former Latin and Ballroom Dancer, she won highly commended for her dance routines.
Today, her passion is to produce powerful gospel/dance music. She loves to design and maintain her very own ministry websites, and fulfill her calling, which is to preach the gospel throughout the world, inspiring and encouraging many to believe in God, and giving them hope.
Valentina came from a deeply religious background. As a child, she grew up listening to gospel music, and recorded vocals to carols on tape, at the age of five. Her favorite carol was “Silent Night.” As a teenager, she sang in the church choir and to both the pastor’s and church member’s amazement, she quickly learned to play a vast range of songs on the flute in a short period of time, including her favorite hymn “Onward Christian Soldiers,” which she played at various Baptist churches.
Nowadays, her favorite instrument is the keyboard, and with God’s help, Valentina produces her own fresh, unique, original gospel music. She does the programming, composition, arrangement, lyrics and vocals for professional, high quality and inspirational Gospel/Christian/Dance/Electronic music.
Valentina has arranged and composed over 102 gospel music tunes and written over 110 gospel music lyrics. Her gospel lyrics include many biblical themes ranging from Jesus Christ our Lord who is the light of the world, Christ’s crucifixion, resurrection, ascension and return as King of kings and Lord of lords to set up His Kingdom here on earth – which is the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, worshipping and praising the Lord and His supreme power, thanksgiving, God’s precious love for His children and our love for Him, and obedience to God. While other songs include lyrics about God’s supernatural protection, healing, miracles, divinity, eternal life, faith and wisdom.
Valentina is passionate about writing gospel songs with lyrics that are both inspirational and motivational. The inspiration behind the happy, uplifting and upbeat song ‘Light of the world’ came after she saw a bright light in the sky at nighttime, which shone as a glowing metal, and it shone so brightly that it lit up the whole room.
