President Iohannis’ wife, Carmen Iohannis, who is an English teacher at a high school in Sibiu, has been seen quite often in public since the new academic year has started.
The first lady was seen at the Media Music Awards (MMA) in Sibiu dancing and singing on Smiley and Voltaj music. Carmen Iohannis came to the Romanian music awards gala on Thursday night with her friends and watched the show from a tribune quite far away from the stage. The President’s wife dances and sang, while also taking photos during the recitals of some artists. She mainly enjoyed hearing songs by Smiley and Voltaj. 31 Romanian artists performed at Media Music Awards on Thursday, the second large musical event in Romania in 2016 after Untold in Cluj.

Andra was awarded “the best female singer”, “the most appreciated artist on Facebook” and “the fastest number one”.
