Who Is Who: Bulgaria's Eurovision 2010 Representative Miro
Miro (Miroslav Kostadinov) was born March 10, 1976, in the northeast Bulgarian city of Dobrich. He graduated from high school with a profile in Russian.
In the mid 1990s, Miro received several “Young Performer” awards at Bulgarian festivals. He became famous after 1999 as part of the “KariZma” Duo in which he performed together with Galya (Galina Kurdova). 1999 is believed to be when the duet informally started, and it went on to have increasing success on the Bulgarian pop music scene after 2000.
The top singles of KariZma include “I Risk Having You” (2001) “How Much I Miss You” (2002), “Shall I Run Away from You?” (2003) (the song focuses on raising awareness on domestic child abuse, and the video features Boyko Borisov – Bulgaria’s present Prime Minister, then as Chief Secretary of the Interior Ministry), “Mr. Killer” (2004), “You Walk through Me” (2005), “All in Love” (2006).
In 2006, KariZma released its long-awaited first album, Eclesiast.
After 2007 and 2008, Miro and Galya have increasingly concentrated on their solo careers, and have had fewer and fewer duo appearances.
In 2008, Miro released his hit song "I Lose Control When...", and his solo album "Omirotvoren" (i.e. "Pacified" - a world play with his name in Bulgarian).
