Aliona Munteanu (born 25 May 1989) known better as Aliona Moon is a Moldovan singer. In 2012, she was a backing vocalist for Pasha Parfeny who represented Moldova at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012. Aliona was selected to represent her country in the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 in Malmö with the song "O Mie" composed by Pasha Parfeny. She competed on The Voice of Romania where she finished in fourth place in the final.
Ethnical Moldavian songs and lullabies sung by her mother cultivated Aliona's love for music. Since her childhood Aliona was a member of lots of artistic collectives, where she performed both music and dances. Later she was involved in the talent show Fabrica de Staruri 2 (Star Factory) where she gained the third place and the title of the public's favourite.
With two of her ex-colleagues from Star Factory, Aliona formed the pop band Thumbs Up. The band existed for two years until the break-up in 2011. After that, Aliona took some trophies at international musical festivals as a solo artist, most notably at the Martisor Dorohoian and Dan Spătaru festivals, which were held in Romania.
In 2012 she stepped on the Eurovision stage in Baku, as a back-vocalist for Pasha Parfeny's song, which reached the 11th place. Pasha is returning to Eurovision this time as composer and record producer, and is also expected to back Aliona on the piano, as he did at the national selection final. Despite at the national preselection song was performed in English as "A million", in Sweden Romanian version, "O mie" (A thousand) was performed.
