Childhood



Dorota Rabczewska (aka Doda) was born 15 February 1984 in Ciechanow.
Her parents are Paweł Rabczewski, a two- time medal winner in weightlifting,
and Wanda Rabczewska. Doda was dreaming about being a singer since she was
a little child. They said that she had a good ear. When she attended Public Primary School in Ciechanów, she also used to take piano classes in music school. As early as on May 9, 1992 she had her first performance during Mini Hit List in Wojewódzki Dom Kultury (Voivodship Culture Centre)in Ciechanów. Two years later she won the Children\'s Song Awards in Ciechanów and took part in the programme on Polsat TV "Powitanie Lata w Gdańsku".

As a young artist she didin\'t focus only on her music career. In 1997 she started training athletics. She was good enough to win gold medals in the provincional championships at 100 and 60 m distance, in long jump, shot push and a bronze medal at 100 m distance in the Polish Junior Championships in athletics (Mistrzostwa Polski Juniorów w lekkiej atletyce). In the same year, she took singing lessons from Elzbieta Zapendowska. At the beginning of 1997 she joined Buffo theatre, where, as the only 14-year-old girl, she took part in such performances as "Metro" or "Przeżyj to sam".




Virgin (2000-2007)



In 2000 Doda was chosen to be a vocalist of the group Virgin, beating hundreds of other candidates. She signed a record deal with Universal Music. 2 years later, in October 2002, they released their first album called "Virgin", thanks to which, thay got the nomination to the Fryderyk - award of the Polish Music Industry, for the best breakthrough artist. Two singles, "To ty" and "Mam tylko ciebie", promoted the album. In 2002 Doda took part in popular reality show "Bar". In May 2004 the band released the second album called "Bimbo", which hit the top of the official Polish chart of bestselling albums. It was promoted by 3 singles "Dżaga", "Kolejny raz" and "Nie zawiedz mnie". At the end of the same year, Doda became a member of Mensa Polska . It was possible because of her high IQ score (156), so she belongs to 3% of people from the whole world.

On 4 September 2005 the band performed in Sopot Festival, winning the award from the audience with the song "Znak Pokoju". It is said to be a real breakout in her career. On 17 October 2005 they released the third studio album called Ficca, promoted with "Znak Pokoju", "2 bajki" and "Szansa" after the rendition in 2006. There were 100.000 albums sold, gaining the status of double platinum. In spite of a great popularity of the band, it was dissolved on 1 January 2007.




Solo Career (od 2007)



The end of the cooperation with the band didn\'t mean the end of Doda\'s music adventure. In 2007 she started her solo career. In July she released the album "Diamond Bitch" promoted by singles "Katharsis", "To jest to" and after the reedition with "Rany" and "Dziękuję". Before that, Doda was the star of the programme "Jazda z Dodą" broadcast by TVN. During the prestigous festival of Polish song in Opole she received a journalists\' award.

In 2010 she was a jury member of the programme together with Irena Santor and Tomasz Karolak "Tylko Nas Dwoje" (Just the Two of Us) on Polsat channel and she appeared in the programme "Tak to leciało", where she won 150 000 PLN for the people suffering from the sclerosis multiplex.

Her second solo album "The Seven Temptations" was released in May 2011 and promoted by the single "Bad Girls". Next one was "XXX". The album was promoted by the spectacular "The Seven Temptations Tour".
 
In 2012 Doda released two special brand new songs and videos: "Kac Wawa" for the movie with the same title and "Twa energia" for Gay Pride in Poland. Later two more singles from the latest album were released: "Fuck It", recorded with legendary Polish raper Fokus - the video was directed by film director Xawery Żuławski and earned more than milion views on YouTube only in 24 hours, and "Electrode". In December Doda signed a new record deal with EMI Music (part of Warner Music Poland since 2014) and next year she embarked on her brand new "Fly High Tour".

In March 2014 she released her first live DVD and CD album, "Fly High Tour - Doda Live", promoted by brand new single "High Life". In April Doda released acoustic minialbum with Virgin "Akustycznie - Live At Hear Studio". In December she came back to Universal Music and released a single "Riotka" from her forthcoming third solo studio album.

Doda is now the most popular person in Poland. CNN put her on the list of the best known Poles in whole history of our country (next to Lech Wałęsa and John Paul II). She is the most searched person on the web. PRESS-SERVICE estimated her image for 160 000 000 PLN, in 2009 she appeared in 4325 press publications on 40 covers of women magazines. It was an absolute record in Poland.
