Katarzyna “Kasia” Moś is a Polish singer, songwriter, and dancer. She was previously a member of the The Pussycat Dolls Burlesque Revue in 2011, and in 2012, she came third in the third series of the Polish version of Must Be the Music. She will represent Poland in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 with the song “Flashlight”.

Kasia is the daughter of Marek Moś, a part of the musical group Aukso. She is a graduate of the Frederic Chopin Music School in Bytom, where she studied cello and piano. She has a degree in jazz and contemporary music, graduating from Karol Szymanowski Vocal Academy of Music in Katowice.[2] At age fifteen, Moś began to attend vocal classes by Elżbieta Chlebek, her first steps towards a professional singing career.

At the beginning of her musical career, Moś worked with ensembles such as, among others, Stetsons and Big Band Lotharsi, as well as with the group The Fire, which consisted of teachers and students of the jazz department at the Katowice Academy of Music. In 2002, she recorded her first demo, which was written by, among others, Robert Janson, the founder of Varius Manx. In 2005, she released “I Wanna Know”, which she performed in Piosenka dla Europy 2006, Poland’s national final for the Eurovision Song Contest 2006. She finished in tenth place. From 2008 to 2009, she played the character of Judas in the play Pasja wg św. Marka by Paweł Mykietyn. The play was shown at, among others, the Wratislavia Cantans, the Polish Music Festival in Kraków and Warsaw Autumn.

In 2011, Moś traveled to Las Vegas, United States, where she met American producer Robin Antin, founder of the girl band The Pussycat Dolls. After returning to Poland, she recorded several demo songs and sent them to Antin. Later in the year, she traveled to the United States again, after being asked by Antin to join The Pussycat Dolls Burlesque Revue with which she performed at, among other places, the Viper Room. During the half-a-year contract, she collaborated with singers such as Kelly Osbourne, Mýa and Carmen Electra, and was invited by actress Eva Longoria to sing at a charity auction organised by her foundation. In 2012, she auditioned for the third series of the Polish version of Must Be the Music. During her audition she performed “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” by Aretha Franklin and advanced to the next round, eventually qualifying to the semi-finals. In the first semi-final she took part in she sang “Czerwony jak cegła” by Dżem and qualified to the final, where she came third. During her time on the show she collaborated with Tax Free on the song “Uwierz”, which was included on the band’s debut album, Na ostatnim piętrze nieba. The song was recorded to support the fight against dog abuse. In September, Moś played the role of Cordelia in the world premiere of the musical Król lear by Paweł Mykietyn.

In 2014, she became a spokesperson for Link4, an insurance company. In October 2015, she released her debut studio album Inspination.[16] One of the singles from the album, “Addiction”, qualified to Krajowe Eliminacje 2016, Poland’s national final for the Eurovision Song Contest 2016. In the final, which took place on 5 March 2016, the song received 3.39% of the vote, and placed sixth. In the same year, Moś appeared on the cover of the October issue of Polish version of Playboy magazine. In February 2017, she released “Flashlight”, which will be included on her second studio album. The song qualified to Poland’s national final for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 and won. In an OGAE Poland interview, she said the song is dedicated to all who are persecuted. She added in an interview: “For me it was mainly about all the poor animals. But it can also go for refugees and anyone who does not feel safe and has to flee from the place where they left their family, their home, and their life…”

LYRICS

Like a bullet from a smoking gun
They try to tell us that we don’t belong
Creeping round at the depth of night
Just two shadows in love we were ghosts

Two hearts we’re invincible
When we’re together we’re untouchable
Haunted by if it’s wrong or right
Shadows in love we were ghosts

Fire, like a burning desire,
Taking me higher,
walk in a wire,
We will never come down

It’s like s flashlight burning in our eyes
You call the dogs off, I got them hypnotized
You never catch us, take us by suprise
Running faster at the speed of light
Falling deeper got you in the sight
Bringing down your eyes in the sky

Like two animals on the run
Not afraid to fly into the sun
Invisible we don’t leave a trace
We’re shadows in love we were ghosts

Fire, like a burning desire,
Taking me higher,
walk in a wire,
We will never come down

It’s like s flashlight burning in our eyes
You call the dogs off, I got them hypnotized
You never catch us, take us by suprise
Running faster at the speed of light
Falling deeper got you in a sight
Bringing down your eyes in the sky
