“I wrote this song together with three of my friends a long time ago. I love Greek and general European music and I will love to combine it with my personal sound. I have been watching Eurovision my whole life and the song wasn’t meant to be for the contest at first but I had a vision that it could do for Eurovison and I always had that in the back of my head. First of all, I talked with my label and my family. My father adviced me to do it. So I decided to send it SBS and everything happened very quickly. It’s amazing that I’m in this position right now. I’m very happy with peoples’ reaction from the snippet I released and I really wish that they will love it, I want to put on a smile on their faces!”

All the experiences I had with music, starting from Music School and then Australia Decides and possibly in Eurovision,they were all amazing.All of them have been stages of my life to make me come here and I’m very gratefull for all those experiences”
