“I wanted to work with people from different cultures for the new version of my song. So to better convey the message of the song we decided to have it all in English. The song has evolved and I want everyone to understand the message! I know it’s a risk to change the language but what could go wrong?”

Then she revealed to us that she has not officially started the preparations for her staging, but this time she is focusing on the creation of the video clip of the participation which will be officially released in the next period.

“Our time is very limited but we work day and night for the best result”
