R.I.P Malina Olinescu (1974-2011)
« on: December 13, 2011, 12:31:31 AM »
Quote from: eurovision.tv
Malina Olinescu was born to a family of artists in January 29th, 1974 in the Romanian capital of Bucharest. Her professional career started in 1995, when she started to appear in the country's most acclaimed music festivals, like Mamaia and Cerbul de Aur (Golden Stag).

Her first national hit came in 1997 with Mi-e Dor De Tine, and in the following year, she already won the Romanian national final for the 1998 Eurovision Song Contest with Eu Cred, thus representing her home country in Birmingham. Her album Pot Să Zbor appeared shortly afterwards and instantly became a hit.

In 2003, she again participated in the Romanian national final, this time with the song Tacerea Doare (The Silence Hurts) - a nice song to commemorate her on this tragic day. You can on youtube.

Malina Olinescu died last night in Bucharest at the age of 37.

The whole Eurovision Song Contest team of the European Broadcasting Union offers their deepest sympathy and condolences to the family and friends of Malina.

eurovision.tv's article says almost all.

She fell from the 6th floor of the building where she lived. Her neighbours found her body and the paramedics tried for half an hour to save her life to no avail. There is almost no doubt left that she has commited suicide, just like her father, the actor Boris Olinescu, did many years ago.

What a sad news.  :cry:

Eu Cred was a wonderful entry and Mălina was a gorgeous woman.
Romania and the rest of the Eurovision community must be very shocked when they heard the news. I'm very shocked right now.



R.I.P. Mălina.  :( :( :(

I just found a video from the final of first season of Vocea Romaniei (The Voice) and there two of our jurors sang Mi-e dor de tine, one of Malina's song and dedicated the moment to her:

Wow she was cute ! :innocent: I am so sorry to hear these news . I have to admit I never heard the song but it is still tragic . Why would a person of such calibre commit suicide .

Anyways RIP . I know she will be missed

But one day the old lovers long for more
 Dreams and desires of another youth
And they leave their families, betray their friends
 They don't want advice about how to be happy

It is difficult to say something about the exact reason(s). In 2010 a Dutch actor, who seemed to have a perfect life, committed suicide and everyone was thinking "Why?". After his death it became known that the actor (Antonie Kamerling) was depressed for years.

I read that Mălina Olinescu was depressed too. It is a very tragic history.  :(
