Artemisa Mithi will take to the stage this week in the Festivali i Këngës 56 festival with her anthemic song E Dua Botën (I love the world) and is hoping to represent Albania at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest.

Here Artemisa talks to ESC Covers

1. Hello Artemisa. Congratulations on being selected to take part in the Festivali i Këngës. How does it feel to be taking part in this great event?

Hello. Thank you. I feel blessed, that is the perfect word to describe my feelings at being selected to take part in this wonderful festival.

2. Could you tell us something about your song ‘E Dua Botën’?

The song is saying that you should love the world even though it can be bad sometimes, because if you love it you’ll make it better!!

3. Could you tell us something about your singing career so far? Have you taken part in any festivals or released any previous songs?

In 2016 I was apart of The Voice of Albania 6. This was an amazing experience. I was also in the Gjeniu I Vogel festival in FYR Macedonia and I have participated in many other fests also.

4. Who are your musical influences?

My favourite singer is Sam Smith. I love all of his songs. They are amazing.

5. What are your favourite Eurovision Song Contest songs?

Well from Albania my favourite song is ‘Suus’ by  Rona Nishliu from 2012. But I have to say that ‘Rise Like A Phoenix’ by Conchita Wurst (2014 ESC Austria winner) is a masterpiece!!

6. If you could cover a Eurovision song from the past what would it be?

Of course, it would be ‘Rise Like A Phoenix’ because it’s my favourite and fits my voice very nicely!!

7. Do you have a Youtube channel where readers can follow you and listen to your music?

I do not have a channel yet but if they write my name on YouTube they can listen my songs.

Good luck Artemisa. ESC Covers wishes you all the best in the Festivali i Këngës?

Thank you very much and thank you also for the interview.
