In that same year, she entered the Queen of the Song international competition in Rimini, Italy singing Musyka dusha moya (Music of my soul). She won the grand prize in this event.
Also in 1998, Vlasova won several Ukrainian music popularity competitions such as the Song of the Year festival and the 21st Century's Hope nomination. In 1999 she wrote "Wind of Hope". Dmitriy Kostiuk signed on as her manager in that same year.
In November 2001, the Wind of Hope full-length album was released. This album was followed a string of music videos; "Severnoye siyaniye (Northern Lights)", "O Tebe (About You)", "Budu silneye (I'll be strong)", and "Plach obo mne (Cry about me)".
In 2004, Vlasova gave birth to a daughter named Nina and stepped briefly out of her singing career to devote her full attention to her new career as a mother.
Vlasova re-entered the music world in 2005, this time teaming up with Andru Donalds (a member of the group Enigma). The result of their work was four duets and a music video called "Limbo".
