Ive was born in Sofia and has been studying singing and theater since childhood. When she was a child, she participated in musical comedies for kids staged in Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary, Turkey and Italy, the country that inspired her to enroll in an Italian high school, where she studied Italian language and art.
Ive’s first bigger public success came at the age of 15 in the girl band "Instinkt". The girls became very popular after live performances, appearing on the biggest national TV channels and making the music videos of their four most beloved songs.
While singing in the band Ive started also her solo career. She took part in many festivals, where she received prestigious awards and reached the first place in the classification "Hit - 1", a music show on the national TV.
In 2003, she was the winner of the festival "Together for Europe" at Viterbo (Italy), sponsored by the Italian and Bulgarian governments.
In 2006, she was chosen to be the supporting act opening the concert of the Italian star Alexia in Formello, Italy.
In 2008, Ive became a part of the DVD project called "Renilin: Offside", a presentation of emerging international artists, promoted by the Italian record company Renilin. From that moment on began her collaboration with the Renilin and already in the same year Renilin produced Ive’s first single – “Ready For Love” - entirely recorded in Italy. The song was presented at the festival "The Bulgarian Song For Eurovision 2009", where the song reached the top ten chosen by the public votes and the professional jury.
In 2009, Ive graduated from The National Music Academy “Prof. Pancho Vladigerov” majoring in pop and jazz singing.
Between 2008 and 2011, she performed also in theaters, taking part in numerous musicals such as: "Chicago", "Dreamgirls," "Mamma Mia" and "Hair".
In 2011, Ive graduated in "Music Management & Production" from the "New Bulgarian University" in Sofia.
