"Russian soprano Ekaterina Shcherbachenko has won the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World 2009 final, the British broadcaster said Sunday.
The 32-year-old competitor beat out four finalists -- soprano Eri Nakamura, 31, from Japan; Luca, 21, from Italy; bass Jan Martinik, 26, from the Czech Republic; and counter-tenor Yuriy Mynenko, 30, from Ukraine -- to win the title, as well as a $25,000 cash prize.
Shcherbachenko called the day she won the award the "happiest day" of her life.
Martinik won an $8,200 song award, while 21-year-old Italian tenor Giordano Luca took home a $3,275 Audience Prize, the BBC said."
