Jamala is the People’s Artist of Ukraine

After a heroic arrival on Sunday to Ukraine where Jamala was met by a huge crowd celebrating her victory, the “1944” singer did not rest. Today, she was awarded with the highest honour the artist can receive and became the People’s Artist of Ukraine joining the likes of Ani Lorak (Ukraine 2008), Ruslana (Ukraine 2004) and… Philipp Kirkorov!
The award was handed by the president of Ukraine himself Pyotr Poroshenko. After receiving the award Jamala simply stated: “It’s nice, but I was singing not for the awards, but for the sake of Ukraine.ย Thank you!”
