AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS – The team of oikotimes.com gearing up for the coverage of the 2015 Junior Eurovision Song Contest had the chance to interview the amazing Dutch participant, Shalisa, who’s going to represent The Netherlands in Sofia on November 21st with the song “Million Lights”
Shalisa’s song “Million Lights” tells the story of two people that are in love, but who can’t be together because they live too far away from each other. The only way they can connect is by looking at the stars in the sky: there are a million lights in the sky that can be seen from everywhere in the world.
INFORMATION ON SHALISA
Shalisa comes from a tiny old village in the northern part of the Netherlands, where she lives together with her mother, stepfather and two goldfish. She developed her passion for music when she was just a little girl and it has played a big role in her every day life ever since. Aside from playing music and singing, she loves to attend concerts and go water-skiing. On weekends she likes to hang out with friends or go to parties and dance all night! On Sundays she prefers to stay at home and relax.
After taking singing and piano lessons, she decided to participate in Dutch talent show The Voice Kids, where she successfully made it through the auditions and into the battles. Her next challenge was auditioning for Junior Songfestival in 2014, where she made it to the final auditions. In 2015 she auditioned again and this time she blew everyone away with her power ballad “Million Lights”. The juries and the public gave her final performance the maximum 12 points.
