Nina Matvienko's daughter confessed what saved her from depression

For the first time, singer Tonia Matvienko has told us how difficult it is to deal with the death of her mother, the legendary singer Nina Matvienko. Antonina says that when she went on stage for the first time after the tragedy, she was unable to sing her first song because of stress.

The artist said that she was saved from depression in a difficult period of her life. Tonia Matvienko admitted this in an interview with Viva!

The singer says that she did not sleep at all for three weeks after her mother's death: "I constantly had the feeling that my mother was with me, and I was talking to her in my mind, even knowing what she would say. I closed myself up a lot. I did not eat. I even took sleeping pills. I didn't take any antidepressants, but in the state I was in, I could have been admitted to the hospital. Half of my hair fell out. For me, people were divided into those who had lost their mothers and those who did not understand what it was like to live without their mothers. These are completely different kinds of advice and sympathy."

Three weeks later, Tonia tried to go on stage, but she couldn't sing the first song: "I had no strength. It was really hard for me - I was so exhausted. So I started talking to people... I cried, apologized, and admitted that I couldn't do it without the stage. After all, the stage and the people in the audience are also my medicine... People understood me and gave me a standing ovation."

"And then I got a call from the University of Culture, where I teach: "Tonia, your students have an exam tomorrow..." I thought, 'These are my students, I'm responsible for them, they might get lower grades at the exam. That's what saved me - I went to work," says the singer.

The artist recalls that when her mother died, her husband, singer Arsen Mirzoyan, was not there: "He was on tour in America. Together with my dad and my brothers, we did everything we could - we went to draw up documents, consulted on what to do, how to organize, how to dress my mother... Later I realized that with all these worries about saying goodbye, I didn't even have time to cry at the funeral. A month later, I went to a big concert with loud music on purpose. I needed to release my emotions and cry out so that no one could hear."
