May 14 / First Rehearsal Poland: what a lovely performance
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
No I am not reviewing this because I feel sorry for Monika’s situation, you know me better than this but the graphics, the vocal performance and the sentiment created on stage are magical. Beautiful pale colours in LED’s and white dress for Monika who’s giving a hie performance accompanied by female backing vocalist and of course a piano player. I know you will not vote for Poland (personal opinion) but I think it’s a very nice entry!
“It is our ‘baby’, not the first one as we speak about songs – we make music for a long time. But this time, it is a bigger thing for us”, the singer said. (source: eurovision.tv)
Monika Kuszyńska is a Polish singer and songwriter. She started her music career as a soloist of the Polish band Varius Manx in 2001. Together they released four albums. After a tragic car accident in 2006, Monika remained partially paralysed and to this day she moves in a wheelchair. She couldn’t continue her career as singer, but didn’t give up her dream to perform on stage again. She didn’t submit to despair and helpless passivity. (source: eurovision.tv)
