The fourth member of Genealogy, the Armenian supergroup for Eurovision, has been revealed — and she’s an Asian sensation, y’all! Japanese-Armenian singer Stephanie Topalian has made a name for herself out East, but traces her Armenian roots to her father and grandparents.

About Stephanie Topalian

Born to a Japanese mother and an Armenian-American father in L.A., Stephanie Topalian  has surprisingly made a name for herself in Japan. As a teen she sent her demos all over the world, and received the strongest response from a Japanese music producer named Joe Rinoie. The rest is history. Her songs, including “Kimi Ga Iru Kagiri”, have become huge anime hits. She’s also a law school graduate and has also had acting roles in a number of productions, including the short film “It’s All Good” in 2009.

About Genealogy

Earlier in February AMPTV revealed that Genealogy will unite various members of the Armenian Diaspora. Five of the acts will come from abroad — and more specifically Asia, Africa, Australia, Europe and North America — while a sixth will represent the Motherland Armenia. This is represented visually through a forget-me-not flower, which marks the centenary of the Armenian Genocide. Its five petals represent five of members of the Armenian Diaspora, while the centre represents the artist in Armenia.

The following map teases the artists’ current location, and led us to speculate that Essai, Inga Arshakyan, Tamar Kaprelian, Athena Manoukian, Vahe Tilbian, and Stephanie Topalian make up the group. So far, we’ve gotten four right, with only Athena proving to be a false lead. The fifth artist is set to be revealed at the start of March.

Hope they can sing together if they cannot harmonize their voices it will be a painful song to hear. If they sing one after another the limit of 3 min for the song will turn all into a mumbo jumbo, 30 seconds max for each to use is impossible to make something coherent.

I think Azerbaijan is very very confused right now. “Armenians everywhere” hahahaha….She sounds so talented. Can we also point out the fact of how smart the members are – Essai and Stephanie are lawyers, Tamar is a student at Columbia…wow
