Elżbieta, Natalie and Yvonne met eachother in Berlin. They started working together as Elaiza in 2013. They produced an album in the same year via ‘direct-to-disc-recording’. In 2014 they won a wildcard to participate in the German selection for the Eurovision Song Contest and they won it, so they represented their country in the contest.
In 2016 Yvonne left the band to work at other music projects. She was replaced by Laura Zimmermann.
