CBS BOSTON: Malden Opera Singer From Russia Raising Money For Ukraine Through Her Music
MALDEN (CBS) -- Lately, Natalja Sticco is leaning into what she knows best: music.
The opera singer has close ties to both Russia and Ukraine.
"It's very close to my heart because I was born in the USSR. I'm an ethnic Russian. And currently, I have family who lives in Russia and I have lots of friends who live in Ukraine and who are suffering," said Sticco.
Now a Malden resident, Sticco is hoping to help Ukrainian soldiers through her rendition of the song "Requiem For a Soldier."
"Play the song for at least 30 seconds and all the money we get from streaming I'm directly donating to an organization called Taps. So that's an organization supporting veterans and their families," said Sticco.
She says through her website, her song has been streamed 37,000 times in a matter of days. On top of that, she's encouraging separate donations. FULL STORY & VIDEO

With a purity of talent, passion, warmth, and authenticity not seen since the 2007 passing of the legendary Luciano Pavarotti, Natalja’s unpretentious and unapologetic love of the 400-year-old art has made her the standout artist of her generation; challenging audiences to forget stereotypes of Opera as an elitist indulgence and explore it as a cultural experience, without having to feel like you should be jamming to arias with friends in order to enjoy it!"
