She’s poised to perform in the grand final interval at Eurovision 2017, just one day after delivering her biggest and most spectacular concert to date.
But before she dives voice-first into the action, Jamala took a very important break on Wednesday, marrying her long-time partner Bekir Suleimanov.
Covered in white from head to toe, the “1944” singer looked pristine and overjoyed as she and Bekir officially signed their lives over to each other in holy matrimony.

Guests at the private ceremony sat in chairs and on the floor, while Jamala and her beloved exchanged vows to signal their commitment to one another.
Jamala, who gave Ukraine its second-ever Eurovision victory in May, announced her engagement on November 2.
The singer — full name Susana Alimivna Jamaladinova — revealed the news by uploading a sweet picture of herself to Instagram and Facebook, which showed her smiling and with her engagement ring on fine display.
The Elle magazine cover star worked a dramatic eye in the image, created with lashings of mascara, kohl eyeliner, and a natural happiness that comes from love.
She let her dark locks fall loosely and her bangs covers much of her wrinkle-free forehead.
Bekir, her long-time boyfriend, is an economist and mathematician — a reality that made Jamala doubt her relationship initially.
Speaking to Ukraine’s 1+1 in October, she said they’ve found surprising common ground.
“He loves his job,” she said. “At first I was very worried about how a musician may not be able to find something in common with mathematics. But he really helps me with his mathematical mind to understand what is happening in the music.”
“We are dating, and we have very friendly relationships with each other’s parents. I don’t want to comment, but I will say that this relationship is very serious for me. I haven’t got a proposal, but are having serious conversations.”
Eurovision fans will want to thank Bekir, as he is one of the main reasons she decided to compete at Eurovision.
“I said, ‘No, never,'” she remembers of her early thoughts of Eurovision. “He gave me a graph which showed the pros and cons, and explained everything to me. And I agreed.”
Here’s wishing Jamala and Bekir a lifetime of happiness! Congratulations!
