At the start of her career, Věra Bílá soared on the wings of her incredible talent. She sold out concert halls all over the world; in France she won the award for Best Album of the Year in the world music category for her debut album Rom-Pop.

Newspapers such as The Guardian and Libération described her as an extraordinary talent and did not spare words such as “star” or “diva”. At a private concert in the White House, she sang for Bill Clinton and sold out concert halls such as the Olympia in Paris.
