After the announcement of her participation in this year’s national final of Belgium, Eurosong 2023, Ameerah gave an exclusive interview to EurovisionFun‘s Paschalis.
Ameerah is among the finalists of this year’s Eurosong and will try to represent her country at Eurovision 2023 with one of her two songs, “The Carnival” and “Armageddon“.
I was born in Belgium and I have been living in the US for the last ten years. I write music for other artists and myself.
I hadn’t realised that people outside Belgium knew my song (The Sound of Missing You) and I was surprised to listen to it in other countries!
I’d like to come sing in Greece since I’ve never been there!
Thanks to a friend who is a singer and actor who told me that there was a call for songs. I love Eurovision and decided to participate! I worked with Zach Poor and Morgan Taylor Reid, we sent the songs and they were selected!
About her two songs
They were written for Eurovision. Eurovision isn’t that known in America, so I showed them videos of past winners so that we could create a song that would convince everyone within three minutes.
It’s hard to choose a song. Carnival is an earworm, while Armageddon is something different, it starts as a ballad and afterwards it goes to a completely different direction. If I myself had to choose I wouldn’t be able to do it!
You are going to see a lot of wow-factor!
About the other Eurosong participants
I like a lot of songs! When we listened to the other artists’ songs they were all good. No matter who wins, we are going to have a very good song at Eurovision this year!
Her favorite past Eurovision entries
Sandra Kim since she won! I also like Loic Nottet, Tom Dice and Jeremie Makiese as well.
Euphoria for sure, ABBA’s Waterloo and Volare.
I’d love to collaborate with ABBA who are legends, though I know that this is impossible.
Her message to Eurovisionfun
I love the Eurovision Community! You are die-hard fans, you look for the voice, the act, how everything looks and for me as an artist that’s what’s all about! Thank you for your love and I hope to meet you soon!
